Nawazuddin Siddiqui was barred from performing in Ram Leela after the Shiv Sena protested in 2016. But his son played Lord Krishna in a school play, and the proud actor shared his picture.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui was once going to be seen in a stage adaptation of Ram Leela, which was to be held in his village, Budhana, but had to pull out after political party Shiv Sena raised an objection against a Muslim artist portraying a Hindu figure.

The talented actor didn’t have to face similar disappointment this time around as his son got a chance to play Lord Krishna in a school function.

Taking to Twitter, the actor posted a snap of the kid in costume.

He tweeted, “I am glad to the school of my kid. Who gave him an opportunity to play the character of ‘natkhat nandlala’.”

Nawaz was left heartbroken when he was not able to play a part in the Ram Leela and took to Twitter to express it.

He had tweeted, “My childhood dream could not come true, but will definitely be a part of Ramleela next year. Check the rehearsals.”

On the work front, Nawaz will be next seen in Babumoshai Bandookbaaz alongside Bidita Bag.

The film also features Divya Dutta, Murli Sharma, Jatin Goswami, Shraddha Das, Anil George, Jeetu Shivhare and Bhagwan Tiwari in pivotal roles.

The film is all set to hit the screens on August 25.
