NEW DELHI, India, November 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
You've only seen him as a gun-toting mafia don in Gangs of Wasseypur or as a foul-mouthed, unscrupulous, gritty cop in the Vidya Balan-starrer Kahani in the past. But now you see the next big method actor of Bollywood, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, in a completely new avatar. The November issue of India's largest selling men's lifestyle magazine, Men's Health, has pulled off a coup of sorts, with a fashion photo-shoot with Siddiqui on how to look perfect in a suit. The 5ft something watchman-turned-chemist-turned-actor is the surprise package of the magazine's 6th anniversary issue: letting go of the street-savvy brusqueness he essays so well on the screen to play his part as the next big shooting star of Bollywood. "I want to be the highest paid actor in India. Mark my words, that day is not far off," he says.
In the freewheeling interview that accompanies the photo-shoot, Siddiqui also bares his heart on a range of questions, from the heartbreaks in his life, his days of struggle, and how he coped with rejections. "Most women in my life vanished when they learnt that I wanted to marry them. Who would want to marry an unemployed man? You have to look at relationships from a logical point of view. You can call it selfishness. When you feel you are in love, don't let the rush cloud your judgment. Weigh your options," says Siddiqui.
Talking about fitness, he says he too wouldn't mind working out if his role demanded that look. "Aamir Khan had the Ghajini look and now is sporting the Dhoom look. That is not real fitness. Like method acting, fitness should come from the core. If the need arises, even I will build my body," he says.
The anniversary special issue of the magazine also features India's Fittest Men of 2012, which includes seven of India's fittest men, led by never-before-seen 'fat' pictures of Bollywood superhero Hrithik Roshan, along with Olympic bronze medal-winning wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt, one of India's most promising fashion designers Atsu Sekhose, a journalist with eight-packs, a 42-year-old Bollywood film director and an anti-hero who's making waves in the Hindi film industry, among others.
