Nawazuddin Siddiqui opened up about the box office failure of his film – Photo, Motichoor Chaknachoor and Heropanti 2. Speaking to News 18, the actor revealed that he is still relevant despite his films not doing well at the box office because of his “hard work”. Citing Shah Rukh Khan’s example, he added that he is not “really bothered” by the poor performances of his films. “Image (film) chale na chale, lekin Nawazuddin Siddiqui to chalega. (The film may not work, but Nawazuddin Siddiqui will always work),” Nawazuddin told News18 Showsha during an event on the sidelines of Kathakar 2022.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui added, “I never give up. I never shy away from working hard. The rest also depends on whether I do my job with honesty or not. More often than not, there are so many reasons why the film does” I does not work in the ticket office. Maybe the instruction isn’t that good. We never blame any director when the film flops at the box office. We always blame actors and say: ‘Iss actor ki film flop ho gayi’ (This actor’s film flopped).”
Citing the example of Shah Rukh Khan, the actor said, “For example, when a star like Shah Rukh Khan, who has a massive fan base across the world, comes on board the film, he literally serves those fans on a platter to the director. If the film still not working despite all that, then it’s not Shah Rukh Khan’s fault because wo toh thaali mein itni saari audience de raha hai na director ko. (He earns such a large audience for a director). This clearly means that either the director or the story is at fault. Nobody blames them. So I’m not really worried about all these things.”
Meanwhile, on the work front, Nawazuddin will next be seen in a noir revenge drama Hadi. He has that too Noorani Chehre, Tiku Weds Sheru and Jogira Sara Ra Ra in his cat.
