Nawazuddin Siddiqui has been busy as a bee for quite some now. In the past three years, he’s been part of many hits such as such as Peepli (Live) (2010), Paan Singh Tomar (2012), Gangs of Wasseypur (2012), Talaash (2012) and Bombay Talkies. But after keeping a hectic schedule for all these years, Nawaz has finally decided to take time off from from shooting.

“I am taking a break of three months from all my projects. I want to take some rest,” says Nawazuddin, who’s film, Lunch Box, recently bagged the Critic’s Choice award at the 66th Cannes International Film Festival.

Ask him how he would want to spend these three months of vacation, and he says, “I will travel and live my own pleasures.” Having recently returned from the French festival, the actor says that this time things seemed smoother than last year, which was his first time there. “It was easier this time. I’ve already been there before, for Gangs of Wasseypur last year,” he says.

Although he admits that he is keen to do international films, Nawazuddin says he hasn’t taken up any offers so far. “I keep getting offers for international films but I will only take them up if there are any worthy roles. I don’t want to sign a project just for the sake of doing a Hollywood film,” he says.
