Nawazuddin Siddiqui had a lived life the hard way before entering Bollywood. He once worked as a watchman during his struggling days and now will play the role of a failed actor in his next, BOMBAY TALKIES.


Ever since Nawazuddin Siddiqui appeared in Sujoy Ghosh's KAHAANI, there was no looking back for him. The actor even went on to win the National Award recently for his performance in GANGS OF WASSEYPUR. However, as ironical as it may sound the actor apparently will be playing the role of a failed actor in Dibakar Banerjee's segment in BOMBAY TALKIES.

In fact, before he became an actor, Nawaz even worked as a watchman in Delhi. A source says, ''While working as a security guard, Nawaz developed an interest in theatre. He even continued working as a watchman after he arrived in Mumbai to try his hand at acting. He got a small role in PEEPLI LIVE and his career took off from there. He has given spectacular performances in movies like KAHAANI, GANGS OF WASSEYPUR and TALAASH - THE ANSWER LIES WITHIN.''

Nawaz says it was all about waiting for the right opportunity. He says, ''I have done a lot of jobs before I became an actor. I cannot forget my struggling days.''
