‘I Was Judged Based on Five Pages of my 209-page-long Memoir’: Nawazuddin Siddiqui
Nawazuddin Siddiqui finally opens up on his controversial biography that had to be withdrawn after protests
After a long time, Nawazuddin Siddiqui has opened up about his memoir that was pulled out from the market because of the several controversies surrounding it. Nawazuddin admits that he was very hurt because he was judged incessantly because of his honesty. Nawaz had written about his affair with a starlet, Niharika Singh, his co-star in Miss Lovely, revealing rather intimate details which led to a huge controversy on social media. His ex-girlfriend then hit out at him. The book was eventually withdrawn.
"It hurts that I was judged. I was wrong in taking names without thinking how it would affect their lives. I only thought from my point of view. Having said that, I was judged based on five pages of my 209-page-long memoir. The relationships in my life merely made up five pages of the whole book, but that was sensational for everyone. No one cared to see my humble beginnings, everything I went through, my training and how I managed to become a credible actor from a background artiste," Nawazuddin said in an exclusive interview to Mid-Day.
He insisted that the book was written in all honesty. He says he will never write a book again. He was even sarcastic about it. "I wrote it with honesty, it could have inspired a few who aspire to make a name in the movies. Even when I withdrew the book, no one cared to stand up. I don't think of the book anymore. If I ever write again, it would sell because now I am a star but I won't write the truth ever again. A book full of lies, served by a star, coming up soon!" He told in the interview of Mid-day.
