Nawazuddin Siddiqui turns tutor

Not many young aspiring actors get a chance to share screen space with superstar Amitabh Bachchan in their debut venture. Actor Avinash Tiwary is one such lucky guy who has got that opportunity. Avinash plays the role of Big B’s daughter’s boyfriend in the television series, Yudh. Tiwary gives the credit to his Yudh costar, Nawazuddin Siddiqui who gave few tips to him to gain the confidence to face Bollywood’s Shahenshah.

Avinash informs, “It was a pleasure working with two acting giants – Amitji and Nawaz bhai. Nawazuddin pointed out how the actors who worked on daily wages can perform much better than seasoned actors because they work for money and fulfill their need for basic amenities like food, clothing and shelter. A particular scene for Yudh didn’t work out well and I remembered Nawaz’s words and performed in that manner. Big B got so impressed with the scene that after it got over, he gave me a big hug.”

Commenting on his experience while working with Big B, Avinash says, “I will never forget the day when Amitabh Bachchan clapped for me, not just that he made others clap too. I will cherish that forever.”
