Nawazuddin Siddiqui has earned the tag of an intense actor courtesy films like Gangs of Wasseypur, Liar’s Dice and The Lunchbox, but the actor says he would love to feature in a slap-stick comedy. “I would definitely love to do a slap-stick comedy. There is no apprehension from my side. If I get a good script, I will also do a film like that,” said Nawazuddin.
The 42-year-old Bombay Talkies actor will be seen trying his hands at romantic genre in actor-director Sohail Khan’s next. “I am playing a golfer in the film. We have already started shooting for it. I will be seen romancing Amy Jackson and I am quite excited.”
When asked if the romance will be in the style of his Raees co-star Shah Rukh Khan, Nawazuddin said, “No, not that. His style is different. I will be doing it in my own way.”
Nawazuddin will be next seen in filmmaker Anurag Kashyap’s Raman Raghav 2.0, which was screened at 69th Cannes film festival.
The Kahaani actor feels there should be no “class division” when it comes to films. “When Gangs of Wasseypur had gone to Cannes, the film received a wider reach with international media praising it. But a movie should not be restricted to just as a ‘festival film’.”

“A film should also impress the audience. What is the point of critical acclaim if no one goes to watch it? There should be no class division in that sense,” added Nawazuddin.
