Never wanted to play the hero: Nawazuddin
The actor, who now plays the lead role in most of his films, says that he never wanted to play the typical hero
Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who now plays the lead role in most of his films, says that he never wanted to play the typical hero as a person with no bad qualities doesn't exist.
"I don't believe in characters that are either completely negative or posivite like a hero doesn't have any bad qualities. A person like him doesn't exist only," Nawazuddin said
"So, I never had any interest in a hero's role or out and out negative role. I prefer grey characters," he added.
He also pointed out that the difference between his forthcoming film Babumoshai Bandookbaaz and other films is that the "kind of hero you have been seeing, is not there in this film".
In fact, he proudly said he plays "UP's James Bond" in this film.
"Pierce Brosnan who used to play James Bond...he was my madness at one point of time because he had the attitude and swag. Wherever I get the opportunity, I 'stick' that attitude in my films. In this film also, I'm UP's James Bond," he added
Asked about the kind of roles he wants to do, the Peepli Live actor said: "There are lots of characters that are left to do. Dilip Kumar's role in 'Mughal-E-Azam'...I would like to do that at least once with that kind of an attitude...the royal one."
