Mumbai: Veteran filmmaker Subhash Ghai expressed his willingness to work with actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui but after creating a challenging role for him.
"I always want to work with Nawaz. In 2008, we've worked together in 'Black & White'. And who doesn't want to work with a brilliant actor like Nawazuddin?
"But also it raises the responsibility towards his talent. The kind of capacity he has forces me to create a role which suits him. I want to write a character for him, which I never did. That will be challenging for both of us," said Ghai speaking to the media while attending a seminar at the Whistling Wood International Institute along with Nawazuddin.
Asked his success mantra, Nawazuddin replied: "My mantra is working relentlessly with full honesty and hard work. Whatever role I get, I do it wholeheartedly. There are two things in my hand, sincerity and hard work. Other than this let's see how things go on."
The actor also said that he is quite impressed with the performances of the future actors there which reminded him of his old times while he was studying in National School of Drama.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui will be next seen in Rahul Dholakia's "Raees" along with Shahrukh Khan. The film is scheduled to be released on January 26, 2017.
