Nawazuddin Denies Being Part Of Tamil Star Vijay’s Next

 A  report  originating from the South states that Nawazuddin Siddiqui will play the  arch-villain in Tamil superstar  Vijay’s next, tentatively titled  Thalapathy 65 . It is being directed  by Nelson  Dilip Kumar.

Online portals   claim  Nawazzuddin is to play the main antagonist opposite  Vijay. But when I reached out to Nawaz he completely denied it. “For now I’m done  with  dark  negative roles. There is no truth to this rumour.”

It may be  recalled  that last year during the  nationwide lockdown  Nawaz  was  in his hometown  doing a whole lot of introspection and watching the  best of world cinema. He  came to the conclusion  that he  needed to change the  direction of his career.

 Says Nawaz, “There  is so much to learn  from every actor. During the lockdown I watched  films from all over the world. Every  film, every performance has something to teach me. There  are so many different platforms for acting from the  stage to streetplays  to  cinema. I  don’t admire actors. I admire  performances. I saw this Hong  Kong  film In The Mood For Love.And I  was  blown away  by Tony Leung’s performance. I thought Michal Keaton was   mindblowing in Birdman. But  my favourite  performance is   Leonard di Caprio in  Wolf Of  Wall Street. He  played  the character as  wildly as  possible not  bothering about  pitch and rhythm.I like that sense of unpredictability in the  performance.”
