This might come as Shock! On one hand where Kabir Khan directorial “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” talks about the love on both side of “Indo-Pak” borders, starring Salman Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Nawazauddin Siddqui.
However on the other hand, Pakistani journalist Chand Nawab on whom the character of Nawazauddin Siddiqui was based in Bajrangi Bhaijaan has requested none other than Salman Khan for compensation.
No one knew about reporter “Chand Nawab” until last week when the movie released and now he is sensation all over the internet.
“I am a poor journalist and don’t want to deal with the legalities, but I expect Khan to give me a compensation for using me as an inspiration for a character” said Chand in an interview.
“This is about Pakistan’s respect, my intention is not to mint money, it’s simply a request” says Chand.
The Video of “Chand Nawab” which inspired Nawazauddin Siddiqui’s role, was uploaded on Youtube on 8 December 2008 and films the journalist struggling to conclude his news report as passer-bys kept on interrupting him. He finally managed to complete the report after several tries, but not after calling names to passersby interrupting him in a bid to finish recording.
