In this simmering summer season the very versatile Nawazuddin Siddiqui is currently in Pune shooting in the vast green acress of the golf courses in Pune.
The super-versatile actor last seen as a desperate yet funny Pakistani journalist in Bajrangi Bhaijaan with [tooltip id=”88b6af99531f838ed90aed058b7d870a”][tooltip id=”c1b465420d07c688942ed18eadfd9f92″ keyword_color=”#000000″ background_color=”#ffffff”][tooltip id=”4db8f5608d45f5de7881d9bce162f4bf”]Salman Khan[/tooltip][/tooltip][/tooltip] is now shooting a film titled Ali directed by Salman’s brother Sohail Khan.
Nawaz and Sohail now form a mutual fan club.
“He had faith in me. He saw me transformed into a suave polished golf-playing hero opposite Amy Jackson although so far I had only played rustic rough characters,” says Nawaz.
Says Nawaz, “We shot in and around Delhi for an extensive period. Now we are in Pune where the golf courses are famous. Yes, I play a golfer in the film.”
Nawaz had no idea of golf until he began shooting for Ali. “I had very little time to learn the sport.I actually started playing when shooting started. So I learnt golf on the job.”
Now Nawaz is a lifelong gold enthusiast. “It’s such a relaxing sport and has taught me so much about self-discipline. I intend to play golf all my life now.This is the first time I’ve had the chance to take away a skill from one of my characters.”
So far Nawaz played only the roles of scruffy grimy characters. Ali is his first attempt at playing an upperclass character. He is obviously making the best of it.[tooltip type=”box” html=”Input Your Content Here” box_background_color=”#eeeeee” box_opacity=”0.95″ box_padding=”10″ box_border_color=”#3F3F3F” box_border_width=”1″ box_border_radius=”0″ id=”88b6af99531f838ed90aed058b7d870a” /][tooltip type=”box” html=”Salman Khan Bollywood Actor” box_background_color=”#eeeeee” box_opacity=”0.95″ box_padding=”10″ box_border_color=”#3F3F3F” box_border_width=”1″ box_border_radius=”0″ id=”c1b465420d07c688942ed18eadfd9f92″ /]
