Despite being lauded for his performances in films, actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui isn’t content with himself. “I am never satisfied with my work,” says the 41-year-old.

The actor says that when he analyses his performances, he always feels he could have executed them in a better way. “When I look at my performances, I find something amiss. I always know what my shortcomings are. So, I tell myself that I will rectify them in my next film,” says the actor.

Since Nawazuddin has made a mark in the industry with his acting prowess, expectations from him are always very high. Does he feel pressured? “It’s good in a way, because that (the pressure of expectations) keeps me driven. It inspires me to work hard and grow. It reminds me that I should forget what I have already done, and should focus on what to do next. People like my work because I put in a lot of honesty in it. So, it makes me feel that I should bring more genuineness in my craft,” he says.

The actor maintains a low profile, and so is sad that his name was dragged in a controversy, when an FIR was lodged against him for allegedly assaulting a woman in the parking lot of his residential society in Andheri, Mumbai. “I have only focused on my work. So, when that incident happened, it left me shaken and surprised. Now, I have become aware about a lot of things,” he says.

The actor says that usually, he doesn’t pay attention to “anything controversial in life”. “But you do get disturbed when false allegations are levelled against you. I’m not a robot; such controversies affect me. It’s saddening, especially when you aren’t at fault,” he says.
