It is my test as an actor. - Nawazuddin Siddiqui on playing a female character in his next 

Nawazuddin Siddiqui is one of the most skilled actors in the industry at the moment and he has an incredible filmography to back this fact as well. The actor has played a wide range of characters including criminals, psychopaths, law enforcement officers in his career and now he is all set to push the limits by playing a female character in his upcoming film 'Haddi'.

Without a doubt, this is going to be one of the most off beat roles of Nawaz's career he considers it as a test for his acting skills. In a recent conversation with Bombay Times, he stated, "If I am playing a female character, I need to think like a woman and that’s my test as an actor. Outfit, hair, make-up, yeh sab toh theek hai... that’s not my concern. There are experts to look into it and they know their job. Woh sab baahri cheezen hai and those will be taken care of."

The actor further added, "My concern is to get the internal thought process right. What do women think? What do they want? An actor’s job is to get into the head of the character he plays. Your perception, outlook towards life as a woman is bound to be different and that is the most difficult part about Haddi for me. Ek aurat ke nazariyese duniya dekhni hogi. The film is not about costumes and gestures. The process is more internal.”

Sharing how his daughter reacted to his first look from the film, Nawaz stated, "My daughter was very upset when she saw me dressed as a woman. She now knows that it’s for a role and is fine now. I must say this, after this experience, I have huge respect for actresses who do this on a daily basis. Itna saara taam jhaam hota hai. Hair, make-up, kapde, nails... pura sansar leke chalna padta hai. Now I know why an actress may take longer than her male counterpart to get out of her vanity van. It’s absolutely justified. I will have more patience now (laughs)!”
