Nawazuddin Siddiqui is one of the finest actors in Bollywood. He has proved his mettle by giving power-packed performances in all his movies. The 43 year old National School of Drama graduate received recognition after almost a decade of being in the industry.

For a very long time he only got stereotypical roles, but the powerhouse of talent Siddique gave his best to even the most trivial roles that came his way and eventually got noticed. His impeccable acting skills in the movies like Peepli Live and Kahaani made him a household name. But, he got the taste of stardom only after The Gangs Of Wasseypur released. His career took off when all celebrity producers, directors and A-list actors wanted him to be a part of their projects.

He is a well-known face today but we are sure you didn't recognise him in the following movies:

Sarfarosh

Most Popular

Nawaz debuted in the movie Sarfarosh in the year 1999.

Munna Bhai M.B.B.S.

Vidhu Vinod Chopra's film was one of the most successful movies at the box office. Nawaz got the pleasure of sharing screen space with the late actor Sunil Dutt. We're sure you remember the scene where Sunil Dutt catches a thief at the railway station. What you might not know is that Nawaz played the role of that thief.

Shool

National award winning movie, Shool was also released in the year 1999. Nawaz played the role of a waiter in this movie.

Dev.D

Dev.D was a dark remake of the movie Devdas(1955) in a modern day setting. It has an interesting mix of soundtrack but the audience particularly liked this song called Emosanal Aattyachar (Brass Band Version). You'd be surprised to know that the two band boys performing in this song are none other than Nawaz and Sunil Grover(known for playing the character Gutthi).
