My wife was upset, didn’t talk to me for 2 days: Nawazuddin on sex scenes
The team of Babumoshai Bandookbaaz decided to move around their film promotion trip into a vacation.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui, whose last visit to the Charminar had him selling boxers there (every bit part of a promotional event), decided to go there this time as comfortably. Equally the movie is a ‘hatke’ one, the team had fun giving ‘hatke’ answers when asked about what they’re looking forward to in Hyderabad.
While lead actress Bidya Bag still prefers Kolkata biryani over the Hyderabadi one, producer Ashmit Kunder says it is the mirchi bhajjis he is most looking forward to.
The Central Board for Film Certification had ordered 48 cuts for the celluloid, which must have surely vexed its makers. Is Nawaz happy about the appointment of Prasoon Joshi as the new CBFC chief? He states, “Prasoon Joshi is responsible and respected in many ways, and then we are anticipating something good from him. I can’t say anything about how his approach will be to films like ours, but we are hopeful. I feel he is the right person.”
When Nawaz asked about his Intimate scenes how much affect things at home? Nawaz laughs and says, “You’re making me give naughty answers. But yes, my wife was upset with me and didn’t talk to me for two days.”
After doing unexpected roles in Freaky Ali and Munna Michael, he has not shied away from throwing off a leg in motion pictures. “This was not a conscious decision. It so happened that I got such roles. Dance is something anybody can do if you practice well. The same goes for me. It is not really challenging,” he says.
His recent tweet about being dark-skinned created a buzz. Nawaz has no qualms in naming the casting director at whom the tweet was intended.
“I don’t believe in things like colour and complexion. These sort of comments are not right because in our country, almost 90 per cent of the population is brown-skinned. A lot of people promote fairness creams, which means you are giving an inferiority complex to that 90 per cent of Indians. You have to be very responsible. Celebrities shouldn’t be promoting fairness creams. It is absolutely wrong. We should condemn it,” he says.
Nawaz reveals, one thing nobody knows about him so far. “I am actually a very confused person. I am focussed when it comes to work, but otherwise, in every aspect, I’m very confused and indecisive.”
One of the scenes in the movie was filmed at Nawaz’s hometown of Budhana in Uttar Pradesh. He says, “It was gratifying to work amongst neighbours and relatives who have seen me since I was a little boy. They were very cool about it.”
