Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui has been in the news ever since his niece filed a sexual harassment complaint against his brother, Shamas Nawab Siddiqui o
Nawazuddin Siddiqui believes that people who do not get work carry out movements like #MeToo and others. He also feels that topics like casting couch are nothing but a resort to malign the film industry.
While promoting his film ‘Motichoor Chaknachoor‘ last year, Nawazuddin Siddiqui had told Entertainment website, Pinkvilla, “It has never happened to me. Jitna industry ko badnaam karne ki koshish ki ja rahi hai woh galat hai. Yeh pata nahi media ka ek chalan sa ho gaya hai ki saari buraiya hai woh industry mein dhoond rahi hai just for breaking news. You’ll hear of more corruption in other departments. I don’t understand all this. The industry is the safest place, yeh badnaam karne ki koshish chhod dijiye. Yaha pe jinki aukaat nahi hoti hai woh bhi established ho jaate hai. People who have dreams, khud ki khujli hoti hai, this industry fulfills it all. Even after that, people abuse the industry. Isse badi ehsaan faramoshi kya ho sakti hai.”

Sharing his views on casting couch and #MeToo movements, Nawaz told the Entertainment portal, “Everyone thinks they are talented. This industry is beautiful because it also makes a non-talented person into a star. One should come with a lot of training. There needs to be something extraordinary in you. Then kaam nahi hoga toh gaaliyan denge industry ko. Jin logon ko kaam nahi hota, woh duniya bhar ke ilzaam lagate hai industry pe, duniya bhar ke movement nikalte hai phir.”
We wonder what Nawazuddin’s fellow actors have to say about his views on these two hot topics.
