Nawazuddin Siddiqui recalls working with Irrfan Khan 

It's been an year since brilliant actor Irrfan Khan met his demise. However, he did leave behind an vast legacy of art and emotion behind. He revolutionized the acting in Bollywood and inspired several actors working today in the industry. Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who worked with the late actor on several ocassions, recently discussed his experience with Irrfan.

He said, "I had a good association with Irrfan bhai. Apart from both of us attending the same institute, National School of Drama (NSD), he also directed me in ‘Alvida’. Consciously or otherwise, I learnt a lot from him during our interactions."

Recalling an incident when Irrfan was his director, Nawaz said, "When he was directing me in ‘Alvida’ around 2003, he demonstrated a very nice aspect, about using fewer and crisper dialogues. In a scene where I was supposed to ask a girl to come over and sit on my bicycle, Irrfan bhai told me that I can drop the word ‘cycle’ since movies are an audio-visual medium. He taught me ‘less is more’. This is a theory that even I used to follow and his advice only cemented it."
