Nawazuddin Siddiqui is one of the best talents we have in the film industry. With films like Gangs of Wasseypur, Kahaani, Badlapur, Miss Lovely, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Raman Raghav 2,0, Raees and others, he has always proved his acting prowess and versatility. His recent performance as gangster Ganesh Gaitonde in web series Sacred Games has got him a lot of praises. Whichever character Nawaz plays, he plays them with the required determination and nails the performance. 
 
Not many remember that in Rajkumar Hirani's Sanjay Dutt starrer Munna Bhai MBBS, Nawazuddin Siddiqui had a small role. The actor plays the role of a thief in the film who tries to rob Sunil Dutt and when caught, gets thrashed by the mob. As reported by PTI, at an event recently, the 3 Idiots director said that he never thought Nawaz would become such a huge star. The director said, "People had to beat him up in that scene and they really did that! I told him 'Nawaz you've done an amazing work, you're a great actor!' But in my head, I never thought that Nawazuddin Siddiqui would become such a huge actor that he is today."

 

 
Well, the actor has carved his own niche in the industry and can play any given role with ease. 

Nawazuddin Siddiqui will be next seen in Nandita Das' Manto. It is a biopic based on the life of famous writer Saadat Hasan Manto. The film also stars Rasika Dugal and Tahir Bhasin in pivotal roles. Manto is slated to release on September 21, 2018.

On the other hand, Rajkumar Hirani's last release Sanju based on Sanjay Dutt's life was a blockbuster. The film starred Ranbir Kapoor as Sanjay Dutt. Sanju had an ensemble cast of Anushka Sharma, Vicky Kaushal, Sonam Kapoor, Dia Mirza, Paresh Rawal and  Manisha Koirala.
