Nawazuddin happy that dark men are being appreciated

Versatile actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who changed the definition of hero with his films, says now dark men are being appreciated in Bollywood.

“Now audience is ready to see all kinds of films and accepting different actors post ‘Gangs Of Wasseypur’. Even Dhanush is being appreciated in ‘Raanjhanaa’, so now it’s time for dark men. I am happy that dark men are being appreciated in Bollywood (films) by the audience.”

In showbiz, grooming, styling, fitness and good looks play an important role, but conventionally not good looking Nawazuddin has made a mark for himself with his acting skills.

Some of the cast members of “Gangs of Wasseypur” – Nawazuddin, Huma Qureshi and Richa Chadda – have teamed up again for “Shorts”, which has five short stories by five directors. Releasing July 12, it has been co-produced by Guneet Monga and Anurag Kashyap.

Nawazuddin appreciates the trend of short films.

He said: “Time is changing and this is also one kind of experiment. This is a new trend and let’s see where we go. You will see me in a new avatar in the film. I have done around 60 short films in the past, but I am happy that short films are being assembled and are getting released. If the trend goes well, then such small budget films will hit the screens.”
