Nawazuddin Siddiqui is in the news these days for his upcoming film ‘Haddi’. Recently, Nawazuddin’s first look at this film has been revealed. The look of the actor surprised everyone. In this film, she is going to be seen in the role of a woman.
Nawazuddin’s female getup is overshadowed. In an exclusive conversation with a leading portal, Nawaz talks about his look. It’s only been a few days, he said. We have started shooting for Haddi, I will be playing two roles in the film—I am playing a woman and a transgender. These are two separate parts. This is a dual role.
He said, “Akshat had this script and wanted to make this film for almost four years.” Akshat has worked as the second unit director for AK vs AK and Sacred Games. I have known him ever since he worked with Anurag Kashyap. Now we are finally making this project possible.
Nawazuddin said, “If I am playing a female character, I need to think like a woman and this is my test as an actor.” It takes me three hours to get ready. Now I know why it takes an actress longer than her male counterpart to step out of her vanity van. Definitely justified.
She said, the dress, the hair, the make-up, it’s all fine… it’s not my concern. There are experts to look at it, and they know their job. My concern is to heal the inner thought process. What do women think? What do they want? The job of an actor is to get into the head of the character he plays. Your perception and attitude towards life as a woman is bound to be different, and that is the hardest part about bone for me. The world has to be seen from a woman’s point of view.
Nawazuddin also revealed, “I have worked with many famous female directors and it has helped them a lot. He realized that women see the world differently than men. They are far more compassionate and see beauty in everything. For most men, it is often about power and control. This is reflected in our relationships as well.
