The  super-talented  Nawazuddin Siddiqui has been nominated for an international Emmy award for the Best Performance by an Actor for his role as   Ayyan Mani in Netflix film Serious Men.

Says Nawazuddin Siddiqui , “Working with director Sudhir Mishra and playing the role of Ayyan Mani in Serious Men was a dream come true for me and the International Emmy nomination is validation of all the hard work we poured into the film. I feel honoured to portray meaningful stories that are being recognised globally .”

Nawazuddin Siddiqui however  does not look westward  for approval. “While I appreciate the Emmy nomination , for me  getting  approval from the West is not a burning  ambition. I am happy  with all the  praise that comes my way from my own people. To me  a  man on the street  complimenting  me my performance is also important.”
Speaking  about his  role in Serious Men, Nawaz said, “I got to work with Sudhir Sir for the  first time. As a student  of cinema I used  to hero-worship  his films  Iss Raat  Ki Subah Nahin and  Hazaron Khawishein Aisi. I wonder  why it took so long for Sudhir Sir and me to come together. I feel this was  a combination meant to happen.”
