Nawazuddin Speaks To Subhash  K Jha On His  Dream Home



Nawazuddin Siddiqui 


Nawaz, congratulations your  dream  house is  ready?

Jee, Sir. Mere  liye  bahot badi baat hai(this is a  big  thing for me). I’ve spent three years  of  my life  on this.It is my Taj Mahal.

But you never mentioned it to me, or anyone else?

I  wanted  to complete it  before announcing it. But I never hid it from you, Sir. I  never  hide  anything  from you. It’s just something that  I wanted to  see till its closure before speaking about  it.  It’s my dream house and I wanted to make  sure my dream came  true.

Tell me details  about your dream  home?

It has  six  bedroom  , two large  halls, two spacious  lawns  and on the first floor I have a large space to grow trees. I love greenery. I want my home in Mumbai to  remind me  of  my home in my  village .

In today’s  day and age who constructs such a palace?People are comparing it to Shah Rukh Khan’s  residence  Mannat?

Arrey nahin  Sir. There is  no  need to compare the two. That is his dream home.  This is mine. Sabke sapne alag alag hote hain(to each his  own dream).I’d like  you to come to see my home.It is on Yari Road in Andheri

Why have  you named your home Nawab?

That  was my father’s name. Nawab…I miss  him . He would have been so  happy to see my home.

I am  sure he  can see  you right now.When and where  did you  get the time to supervise  the  construction  of your dream house?

Believe me, it was not easy.Specially since I had  an exact map  of  every inch of my  dream  house in my head, and I would not compromise  on even an  inch of that  vision. If during my absence something  was built wrongly I  came back and  broke it. There have been many demolished walls before the  house happened.I wanted every inch of the house to be the way I had designed  it in my mind.I must thank my  brother who helped me  a lot ;during my  absence he supervised the construction.

Since  you’ve done so many  films for free, how did you accrue the  funds for this  massive  home?

It is  simple. When my producer can’t afford to pay me I do it for free. But when I am doing commercial  films I charge  what I deserve.

When  will you enjoy  your dream  house since  you are away most of the  time?

That’s true, I am shooting all over the place and my children are studying in  Dubai.

Do you speak to them  regularly?

Yes yes  lagaataar  baat  ho jaati hai.

heard  you  had a housewarming party with Kangana  Ranaut and your  film crew?

It wasn’t a housewarming. It was just  a wrap-up party. We finished  shooting Tiku Weds Sheru and so I invited the  team home.

Tell me  about Tiku Weds Sheru?

It is a love story. I play  Sheru and Avneet Kaur plays Tiku. I am not shooting for Sabir Khan’s Awasthi where I play  a detective. With so much work I wonder when I will  be able to enjoy my dream home.
