Nawazuddin: Shah Rukh Khan told me to give RAEES my best shot!
Those who have watched Excel Entertainment and Red Chillies Entertainments’ Shah Rukh Khan, Nawazuddin and Mahira starrer, RAEES, at cinema, will vouch for the fact that Nawaz’s entry scene, in a weird get up, got tremendous applause.RAEES MOVIE STILLS
Well, given his body of work, both in meaningful as well as mainstream commercial cinema, it did not come as a surprise.
To know his reaction and more we called up Nawazudiin Siddiqui and the always polished, humble, and soft spoken actor said “I’m happy that my acting is being appreciated. Actually Shah Rukh Khan had told me before the shooting itself that ‘Nawaz your role will be, what has been narrated, rest assured, but give it your best shot’ and I did just that! And he was right, my role turned out to be the way it was meant to be. Shah Rukh Khan, I must say is a very secure superstar. He is very cordial and friendly. It was great working with him.”
When we asked Nawaz, if he was sure that Rahul Dholakia would be able to handle a commercial masala potboiler, after making films like PARZANIA, he replied in the affirmative saying, “I had full confidence in Rahul’s capabilities because he had done all the ground and homework, much before the shooting of RAEES commenced.”
As parting shot we asked the master actor about his next big projects, and as always he promised to let us have all the exclusives, during our next conversation, so just wait for it!!!
