Veteran Bollywood actress Ila Arun says she was initially skeptical about working with Nawazuddin Siddiqui for Ghoomketu

Zee5 just released the first trailer for its upcoming film Ghoomketu. The film stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui as a budding writer trying to make his name in the Bollywood industry. The film stars Anurag Kashyap and Ila Arun in other pivotal roles. Arun is a veteran actress in the industry with a history of four decades worth of film career. In a recent interview with IANS, Arun opened up about her initial hesitation on working with a young actor like Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
 
Speaking to IANS Ila said, 'I am not one of those actors who believe that acting for a longer time and having experience makes you superior. The style of acting is evolving, performance is evolving, and, as an actor, I have to constantly update myself to stay relevant. Nawaz is such a fine actor and I am so impressed by him. In fact, initially I was skeptical to act with him.'
 
She added, 'He is young, his mind is alert and he adds certain nuance in every scene that takes the character to the next level. I, as a senior actor, had to stay on my toes. I had to stay alert to match up to his performance level.'
 
Ila Arun plays the role of Santo Bua in Ghoomketu. 'Yes it is true that I have been performing as an actor, as a singer on stage, in TV shows and in films, but look at all the mediums. All has changed. Nawaz, Raghu (Raghuvir Yadav), and other actors have been excellent! There is a subtlety in Nawaz's performance. He is so on point! I bless him. He is an actor with all emotions on point,' she added.
