A new video by Nawazuddin Siddiqui attempts to strike at the heart of secularism and make an emotional appeal to the viewer. The actor shared the video on Twitter on Monday .
Nawaz made the video with Magic If Films (Shamas N Siddiqui who the business manager for the actor) and is titled Sixteen Point Six Six.
The video starts with him introducing himself in regular clothes, holding up a placard that reads “Hi, I am Nawazuddin Siddiqui.” The next one reads “I had got my DNA test done and when the report came in, I found that I am...”. He is then dressed in white kurta pyjama with a saffron cloth over his shoulder and a vermillion on his forehead. He now holds the placard that reads ‘16.66% Hindu’.
Then dressed in a black bandhgala with a white karakul, with a placard that says ‘16.66% Muslim’.
Then he wears a red turban with thick moustache and the placard reads ‘16.66% Sikh.’
Nawaz then wears the robes of member of the church with a cross around his neck and the placard reads ‘16.66% Christian.’
He then wears a Buddhist monk’s robes and the placard says ‘16.66% Buddhist.’
Finally, he says that when he ‘discovered his soul’, he found that he is ‘100% artist’.
The video seems to be Nawaz’s own way of weighing on the national debate raging on secularism in the country.
Nawaz is currently working on four projects. He will star in Munna Michael, Manto, Mom and Babumoshai Bandookbaaz.
