After film maker Karan Johar, veteran actors Rishi Kapoor, Shatrughan Sinha and many others, the Gangs of Wasseypur actor, Nawazuddin Siddiqui is all set to release his autobiography and allow his fans to know him more intimately.
Siddiqui has had a hard time entering in the Hindi film industry and has also faced many ups and downs in his life that are totally worth a share in the form of an autobiography. The book will include all the necessary events of his life. From his early days as a villager and a farmer’s son to his theatre days and from his exhausting struggle in the Indian Film industry to the eventual recognition that he received from the viewers, almost everything will be documented in it.
The book is titled as, “The Incredible Life of the Drama King of India.” It will be penned as a conversation between him and journalist, Rituparna Chatterjee and is scheduled to be out in October.
In a talk with Mid-day about his autobiography, Nawaz said, “We started working on the book almost two years ago. It traces my life from the time I resided in a village, to becoming an actor. We began writing this a while ago and will launch it in two months.” Also, He added, “No one knows about my childhood and what it takes for a farmer’s child, who lived in a joint family, to enter this field and make a name. Achieving this life could have only been a distant dream. The contribution of my parents and my village in helping me become what I am today has been immense and makes for a major chunk of the book. Also, my theatre days have been beautifully chronicled. I think there is a lot of masala in there for people to read.”
On the work front, the versatile actor last appeared in Sabbir Khan’s Munna Michael with Tiger Shroff in the lead and Ravi Udyawar’s MOM alongside Sridevi. Also, he is all set for the promotions of Babumoshai Bandook after which he’ll be seen working with Nandita Das for an Indian biographical historical period drama film, Manto.
