Stars are known for going out of their way to do justice to their roles, and Nawazuddin Siddiqui tops that chart. For National award winner Mangesh Hadawle's next movie DEKH INDIAN CIRCUS the actor went beyond everyone's imagination, in the movie Nawaz plays a mute character who is also one of the main characters in the film. The dedicated actor that he is, Nawaz underwent a course in which he was trained for hand movements, gestures and facial expressions which are usually done by mute people in their everyday life. It was a rigorous and difficult and Nawaz mastered it by the end of the training lessons.
Not only this a source adds, ''Nawaz took the role so seriously that he had refrained from talking to anyone on the sets.'' In order to get into the character perfectly Nawaz not only stopped speaking on the phone but also stopped speaking to people on the sets.
A close friend of Nawaz adds, ''It was quiet a difficult task for Nawaz to switch on and switch off talking during the shoot, so he decided to keep it switched off for the whole shoot.'' Also this added a lot of weight to his character and he had put in a lot of hard work and practiced for his role. Nawaz made it a point that he did not speak to anyone for a period of two months while this film was shot just to be in his character.
According to Mangesh Hadawale the director of the film, Nawaz has done justice to the character and no one could have played the character better than him. He also added, Nawaz being mum all along the shoot got the perfect emotions from him.
