Elaborating more, he further stated that one should also know where one’s talent will be used. He also revealed a piece of advice given to him by the director of his early films. Nawaz said that the filmmaker told him that he should focus on working with directors who could give him good roles because with an appearance like his, he would most certainly be wasted in mainstream films. The ace actor added that according to him, these Bollywood formula films do not require talented actors.
Nawazuddin went on to say that it is fine if an aspirant has a lot of money to invest in their grooming, dance etc but it has nothing to do with acting. According to him, if you come with knowledge of your craft, there is no point in pursuing formula films.
