by Suchismita Pal

Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who wins the hearts of thousands with his stunning acting skills, believes that the road to success can be paved by solely hard work. He doesn’t believe in luck and thinks that when hard work is done with brainstorming and presence of mind, success is inevitable. Nawazuddin got a break in his acting career after 12 years of sheer hard work. He grew up in a farmer’s family with nine brothers. During his days of struggle in Mumbai, he even survived for around 1.5 years only on tea and biscuits to save expenses.

Nawazuddin Came To Mumbai With Only ₹20,000 In His Pocket

Speaking to Curly Tales, Nawazuddin said that he had directed a show in Delhi and had received ₹20,000. With that amount, he came to Mumbai to begin his journey as an actor. He would do odd jobs in the day and join back theatre in the evening. He had even once worked as a watchman for ₹500/month. He even added that after coming to Mumbai, he did not step out of his home for 15 days, as he was scared of coping with the speed on the roads. But after years of sacrifices and dedication, he has now positioned himself as one of the best actors in the industry. With his stupendous onscreen presence, Nawazuddin has bagged a massive number of followers who always stay eager to watch his movies.
