Recently, there was a lot of speculation about Nawazuddin Siddiqui playing an antagonist in Thalapathy Vijay’s next film. The film which is tentatively titled Thalapathy 65 is being directed by Nelson Dilip Kumar.
However, Nawazuddin denied all these reports. He said, “For now I’m done with dark negative roles. There is no truth to this rumour.”
“There is so much to learn from every actor. During the lockdown I watched films from all over the world. Every film, every performance has something to teach me. There are so many different platforms for acting from the stage to street plays to cinema. I don’t admire actors. I admire performances. I saw this Hong Kong film In The Mood For Love. And I was blown away by Tony Leung’s performance. I thought Michal Keaton was mind-blowing in Birdman. But my favourite performance is Leonard di Caprio in Wolf Of Wall Street. He played the character as wildly as possible not bothering about pitch and rhythm. I like that sense of unpredictability in the performance”, he added.
