Naseeruddin Shah said in a meeting said that he considers Nawazuddin Siddiqui to be one of the finest artists in the film industry.He also spoke about how he envies Nawaz and wished he was as good as the actor when he was young.
The veteran artist included that he feels Nawaz is the main actor who has done justice to both commercial and art films.
Flattered by Naseeruddin Shah’s praises Nawaz says, “Being tagged as a particular kind of artiste is not the actor’s fault. Although actors like Naseer saab were tagged as ‘art films’ actors, they did good films. I grew up watching and learning from such movies. I have learnt so much from Naeer saab. His films inspired me.” – CINEWS
