Bollywood sought-after actor, Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s dream come true as he was nominated for the 2021 International Emmy Awards. He was nominated in the category of ‘Best Actor’ for giving a wonderful performance in ‘Serious Men’ directed by Sudhir Mishra.
While talking about his nomination with an Indian publication, the most popular actor, Nawazuddin Siddiqui said that it means a lot to get nominated for the Emmy Awards- which means we are doing something right. An Emmy is a huge endorsement of excellence, but we don’t need to look for West approvals all the time, he added.
He raised a question over Emmy nomination and said, ‘Everything we do, we need a pat on the back from the West. For him, acknowledgment of his hard work is just as important from home as it is from abroad.
The actor further recalled that he was at Cannes Festival with Geetu Mohandas’ Liars Dice, Nandita Das’ Manto, and Anurag Kashyap’s Raman Raghav. Manto was the 9th film in his career that he was in Cannes with.
While concluding, he added, In 2018, the Hollywood Reporter called him the Indian Marcello Mastroianni. He couldn’t sleep for days as he was one of his favorite actors. Among Bollywood actors, Dilip Kumar is his most favorite actor, he’d be happy if the reporter compared him to Dilip Kumar. The News
