Nawazuddin Siddiqui clarifies rumors about him quitting OTT

Brilliant actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui has expressed his displeasure with the workings of OTT platforms on several occasions and few weeks back there were reports that he has decided to quit working on OTT projects once and for all. However, it has now come to light that Nawaz's statement was misinterpreted by some and the actor recently clarified that he is not going to leave the stage which has played a monumental role in his success.

Nawaz told India Today, "I am doing a lot of films for OTT. I am sitting here because of Netflix. OTT platforms have given us all international recognition. We get to showcase our talent there for the whole world to see. In my statement, I was talking about some production houses that randomly make anything. It was taken out of context and my intention was never to say that I want to quit OTT. I just don't want to do anything that looks like a serial."

Nawaz further talked about how he uses his real life struggles to shape his characters. He said, "Your experience speaks a lot when you are performing. Whenever you are playing a character, you have to relate to it in some way. I come from a very small village and eventually moved to a big city. So, the life experience that I got in between is something I often go back to while playing a character. I have met thousands of people. I feel it is an advantage because it supports me with the characters I play."
