Nawazuddin Siddiqui has revealed that he absolutely likes playing a baddie. He says that 'bad' characters have more shades in them than good characters. "Black or white characters have no shades. It’s the grey characters who are colourful. White characters — the heroes — have nothing to do. They just keep standing like sticks, while the others around them adorn the film. There is no mazaa in that. Hollywood actors Robert De Niro and Al Pacino have mainly played characters with grey shades. That’s where you get to see what the actor is all about. Even I am selfish. I prefer grey characters because there is more scope in them," Nawaz told DNA in an interview.
He also spoke about playing Bal Thackeray, the iconic Mumbai politician in a forthcoming film. "I’m quite excited about it. It’s a dream for any actor to showcase his work and sensibilities to a wider audience. It’s through the digital platform that we can show the entire world ki hum bhi hain. We have shot and treated the series with the same discipline and hard work as we would for a film," he added.
We can’t wait to watch Nawaz essay the role of Bal Thackeray. That’s going to be something to look forward to!
