Nawazuddin Siddiqui On Becoming A Full-Fledged Farmer, “I Moved Away From My Roots, It’s Good To Be Back”
Nawazuddin Siddiqui has been in the news lately for his divorce with his wife Aaliya Siddiqui. There were many news and controversies about the split. However, the actor seems to have found solace from the same in his hometown in Budhana. He has taken up farming and wants to become a full-fledged farmer now.
Speaking to Spotboye, Nawaz said now that he is away from acting and Mumbai, he is using this time to become a full-fledged farmer. He was quoted saying, “I come home to Budhana to practice farming as often as I can. It is only now because of the lockdown that I’ve found so much time to be at home. I’m using this time away from Mumbai and acting to become a full-fledged farmer.” Nawaz confesses nothing in life gives him as much pleasure as being in close contact with his roots. “Farming gives me a feeling of continuity and renewal. My grandfather and father were also farmers. I moved away from my roots. But it’s good to be back.”
Speaking about signing any new films, Nawa says, “I am considering several offers. I will return to something that will take me ahead of where I’ve already been as an actor.” For Nawazuddin repetition is annihilation. “I’ve watched a lot of international cinema during our lockdown. Trust me, when compared to international actors and cinema we have a long way to go. My favourites are Anthony Hopkins, Daniel Day-Lewis, Ricardo Darin, Tony Leung, Denzel Washington, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Spacey. Matthew McConaughey and our own Dilip Kumar, Naseeruddin Shah, Every day I’m learning something new from each of these actors. At the moment my favourite actor is the Argentinian Ricardo Darin. I strongly recommend his film The Secret In Their Eyes to see what outstanding acting is. Darin is on another level.”
