Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui has shared a cryptic message about the discrimination he has faced in the Hindi film industry over his appearance.

Taking to Twitter on Monday, Nawazuddin, who recently starred in Mom, wrote: “Thank you for making me realise that I cannot be paired along with the fair and handsome because I am dark and not good looking. But I never focus on that.”

However, it is unclear as to whom the 43-year-old actor’s message is directed towards.

Nawazuddin is gearing up for the release of his upcoming film Munna Michael. The film directed by Sabbir Khan is set to release on July 21.

Nawazuddin was last seen in the Sridevi starrer Mom and will also be feature in Babumoshai Bandookbaaz, which is slated to release on August 25.
