Nawazuddin Siddiqui has proved his mettle as a versatile actor with his choice of films and his performance in those films. He unarguably is one of the most bankable actors of today's age; a position once owned by the 3 Khans.


Speaking about the 3 Khans; Salman Khan, Shahrukh Khan and Aamir Khan, the actors have been receiving a lot of flak for underperforming in 2018 with films like Race 3, ZERO and Thugs of Hindostan respectively. While all 3 of them were big budgets films and were highly anticipated films they tanked miserably at the box-office, leaving the fans of the 3 megastars in a state of shock.


In contrast; unexpecting and low budget films like Stree, Badhia Ho, and Sonu K Titu Ki Sweety did wonders not just by winning millions of hearts but also rang at the box office counters. Speaking about this shift; Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who feels that this phenomenon is not new, was quoted by a Times Now saying," Change in cinema happened a long time back. Filmmakers like Shekhar Kapur, Anurag Kashyap, Ram Gopal Verma are to be credited for it. These days actors are saying they are bringing the change but that's not true, whatever shift in cinema has happened is because of the filmmakers I mentioned."


The ‘Thackray' actor further went on to say, "Actors shooting in a small town is nothing new, this was already explored in films like Dev D and many more films in the past. It's just that big stars are going now which is why you are saying that times are changing, the content-driven cinema is finally taking shape."

"I feel the change that you see today is nothing but a coincidence and the definition of content-driven still includes all the recipe that's aimed at a Bollywood masala entertainer. You need to put 4-5 songs; you have to make it a little fun, humorous irrespective of what the subject is. I think hardcore cinema still has a certain pocket to reach...So I don't think any big change has happened as yet...But I am sure it will happen soon."


Speaking about reports that claimed the Khans era coming to an end; Nawaz said he feels just one flop cannot decide the fate of star. The Raman Raghav actor said," Ek picture flop ho gayi toh thodi na Khan ka zamaana chala gaya...Aisa nahi hota (Just because one film flopped, does it mean that the era of the Khans is over? It doesn't happen like that)."


Well, we certainly would like to agree with the actor's opinion owing to the fact that the 3 Khans have consolidated their place in the hearts of millions of fans not just nationally but also internationally and we are eagerly hoping for films that will bring the much-needed revival to the careers of all the 3 superstars.


On the professional front; Nawazuddin Siddiqui was last seen alongside Amrita Rao in the biopic of Shiv Sena supremo, Balasaheb Thackray, titled Thackray and will now be seen opposite Sanya Malhotra in ‘Photograph'. the film is directed by Ritesh Batra and will hit the screens on the 17th of May.
