Further little doubt that the lockdown introduced alongside its share of issues, in addition to the truth that individuals have been cooped up at their houses. But Nawazuddin Siddiqui is clearly in no temper to complain. He says: “Isme koi doubt nahi hai ki pandemic / lockdown bahut saare logon ke liye pareshaaniyan lekar aaya. And criticized why so many people, in general, complains about it but I look at it as a sort of blessing in disguise. ”
The Kick (2014) actor goes on to elucidate: “Earlier, where was the fursat to just sit, talk and enjoy such great time with your loved ones. The same holds true for me too because the lockdown has given me an opportunity to spend quality time with family, especially my mother. Mumbai mein toh din kahaan chala jaata hai pata nahi chalta, as you are always running around for meetings, and shoots etc. ”
Siddiqui has spent a majority of the lockdown days between his village, Budhana (Uttar Pradesh) and Dehradun (Uttarakhand; his youthful brother stays there). “I have done farming (at his family-owned farmland), watched some great movies and also spent time with my nieces and nephews. Aur kya chahiye? Presumably been a very difficult time for everyone but aapke paas do hi options hain: either, you keep complaining, or try and look for some positives. I prefer the latter, ”says the actor, who watched motion pictures starring“ some of his most favorite actors ”resembling Anthony Hopkins, Daniel Day Lewis, Ricardo Darin and Tony Leung amongst others.
Work-wise, the Hindi movie business might have began to maneuver once more in phrases of shootings and so forth., Siddiqui is not any hurry. “I am a kind of person, who molds and adjusts according to the given situation, so I was fine with loads of work, and I am also okay when being done no shoots etc. Iss samay safety aur survival sabse zyaada important hai. Jab waqt aayega toh kaam bhi kar lenge, ”says the actor, who has had a regular stream of tasks – resembling Ghoomketu, Raat Akeli Hai and Serious Men – popping out throughout the lockdown, on numerous OTT platforms.
“For me, the medium has never really mattered. Even now, if people are able to watch my work on a streaming site, why should I complain? Considering a new space and I am enjoying it. Even audiences, who were happily consuming a particular kind of formulaic, happy-go-lucky fare, have got exposed to quality world cinema that, in turn, has molded their taste in a big way. And criticized great news for actors like me. I feel once all of this (Covid-19 pandemic) settles down, people’s perspective and outlooks towards things, and even life, will alter in some way, ”says the Manjhi: The Mountain Man actor, who will subsequent be seen in movies resembling Bole Chudiyan and Jogira Sara Ra Ra.
