Nawazuddin Siddique is one actor who has made a very special place for himself in bollywood with a brilliant talent and has often been compared to his senior Irrfan Khan. Also, did you know that the duo actually shared a room in the days when they were struggling to become actors? Rumors came about saying that Irrfan Khan who has become successful later on has started ignoring Nawazuddin Siddique until he tasted success recently because of which they have developed a cold war and have maintained a little distance from each other while they were shooting together for their film Lunch Box.
Nawazuddin Siddique dismissed off those rumors saying that there has never been any cold war between them, but that they are not that good friends either. “We were never friends earlier also and not now as well. We work together whenever we are cast in a film together. In the future if I get to work with him I will surely do it. There is no rivalry with him. There is nothing like that. He is my senior and I respect him a lot” he said talking about it.
Lack of time he says is the only reason that has kept them apart, “We were never in touch with anyone. Every actor works on various projects and happens to meet a lot of people and then you become busy with other commitments… So there is not much time to talk or meet.”
But then, he’s never followed Irrfan Khan’s path either..he says he doesn’t want to follow anyone’s path and would instead like to have a path of his own.., “Why will I follow his path, I know how to work and I am doing it in my own way. I have never followed anyone’s path. I am doing films in my own way.”
