Nawazuddin Siddiqui On The  Pleasure Of Farming, 'My Grandfather And Father Were Also Farmers, I Moved Away From My Roots' - EXCLUSIVE
Nawazuddin Siddiqui has gone back to his roots, and he couldn’t be any happier.

Since the lockdown Nawaz is  in his native village of Budhana in Uttarakhand where he spends a lot of time farming.

 Says Nawaz, “I come home to Budhana to practice farming as often as I can. It is only now because of the lockdown that I’ve found so much time to be  at home. I’m using  this  time away from Mumbai and acting to become a full-fledged farmer.” Nawaz confesses  nothing in life gives him as much  pleasure as  being in  close contact with his roots.  “Farming gives me the feeling  of continuity and renewal. My grandfather and father were also farmers. I moved away from my roots. But  it’s good to be  back.”

Nawaz is yet to sign any new films. “I am considering several offers. I will return to something that will take me ahead  of where I’ve already been as an actor.”

For Nawazuddin repetition is annihilation. "I've watched a lot of international cinema during our lockdown. Trust me, when compared to international actors and cinema we've a long way to go. My  favourites  are Anthony Hopkins, Daniel Day Lewis, Ricardo Darin, Tony Leung, Denzel Washington, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Spacey. Matthew McConaughey and our own  Dilip Kumar, Naseeruddin Shah, Every day I’m learning something new from each of  these actors. At the moment my favourite actor is the Argentinian Ricardo Darin. I strongly recommend  his film The  Secret In Their  Eyes to see what outstanding acting is. Darin is on another level.”
