“I’m not frightened of losing all that I have earned. I came to Mumbai with Rs 3,000 and regardless of the possibility that I need to leave this spot with the same measure of cash in my pocket, I don’t think it will be a terrible arrangement,” says the 41-year-old. Truth be told, he’s one of only a handful few who don’t request a specific charge to act in a film, and as a rule take whatever the producers offer.
“I don’t need to request a cost. The producers of my movies are extremely brilliant, they know precisely how much performers charge. On the off chance that I request [an unreasonable fee], nobody will offer it to me. This industry knows a performer’s worth. As it seems to be, I didn’t come here to win cash. In the event that I just needed to procure cash, I would have stayed back in my town (Budhana, Uttar Pradesh). We have a considerable measure of area, and I could have easily begun a plant there,” he says.
Nawazuddin, who has had stellar performances in movies, for example, Gangs Of Wasseypur (2012), The Lunchbox (2013) and Badlapur (2015), is aware of individuals’ uplifted expectations of him. “It turns into your obligation to perform when individuals begin expecting a specific level of work from you. I do whatever it takes not to pick parts for the hell of doing a film. I additionally would prefer not to degenerate myself by believing that now I have arrived, despite the fact that individuals say I have. I would prefer not to believe that I can do whatever I need, and individuals will in any case say great things in regards to me,” says the performer.
Subsequently, it’s nothing unexpected when Nawaz says that it doesn’t make a difference if or not he is assuming the lead part. “When I began acting, I never thought I will get lead parts sometime in the future. Be that as it may, today, I’m playing a focal character in Ritesh Batra’s next. On the off chance that a story requests me ahead of the pack, I will do it. Be that as it may, not consider it the lead. For me, it’s just a character.”
