Nawazuddin Siddiqui Shares Story Of His Struggle In Humans of Bombay Post, Says “The Struggle Was Not Beautiful, It Was Just That: A Struggle”

He also revealed that initially he thought he won’t be able to match up to the speed of Mumbai.
He said,

“My first impression of Bombay was how fast everything was. It took me a month to get used to the pace of life – I thought I would never be able to match up to its speed. But slowly I joined the rat race.”

He then went on to talk about his first experience of acting on stage,

“Our family would watch Ram Leela plays together. That was my first encounter with acting. One of my friends played Ram and seeing him on stage left me starstruck! I’d imagine playing the role of Ram myself! After college, I worked as a chemist in Vadodara. There, I watched a play for the first time. That night, the thought of being an actor became a dream. So I studied at the National School of Drama and then went where everybody with a dream of acting goes – Bombay. My parents, who weren’t educated themselves, supported me. They said I could do anything as long as I was honest and worked hard.
But I did it. I went from playing an insignificant role in Munnabhai MBBS to winning a Filmfare award for my role in Lunchbox. I went from being unrecognised in Sarfarosh to being known as Ganesh Gaitonde across the nation. I went from being a watchman to becoming the ‘watch me’ man – and I’m nowhere near being done, so keep watching – I’m here to stay!”
