Says Nawaz, “This is news to me.To be very honest,once I complete  a film I  don’t keep track of its journey. Mera kaam  hai acting karna . Usske  aage main kuch nahin janta.”

Nawaz also adds that to him the format  of  screening is not relevant. “Whether my films are  seen on the big screen or at home, I am equally  excited about it. There is no difference  in my mind between  the two experiences.”
