Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who will be next in Haddi, playing a transwoman, spoke about his experience of working with female directors. "I have worked with many renowned female directors and that helped me a great deal. I realised that women look at the world differently.They are far more compassionate and they see beauty in everything," he said, according to IANS.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui rose to fame with Peepli Live directed by Anusha Rizvi. He worked with Director Debamitra Biswal for Motichoor Chaknachoor. Nawazuddin took on a very challenging role of prolific writer Manto in Nandita Das's directorial venture.

He worked with Zoya Akhtar in Bombay Talkies, an anthology of four short stories that describe how films influence the lives of people from various strata of society. He also worked on Talaash with Reema Kagti.

"For most men, it's often about power and control. That reflects in our relationships. Men tend to be more territorial. The female gaze is kinder and sensitive. I am trying to get that POV (point of view) right."

On the work front, Nawaz has an interesting line-up of films which includes Tiku Weds Sheru, Noorani Chehra, and Adbhut among others.
