Nawazuddin Siddiqui is one of the popular stars of Bollywood. The actor, who is far away from Mumbai in his hometown Budhana in Uttarakhand says he has no intentions of getting back to work anytime soon. “I know the lockdown is being eased in Mumbai and that shooting is being resumed .We are allowed to shoot from 9 am to 4 pm. That’s good news. But I am not sure whether it is the right time yet to get back to shooting,” says Nawaz who feels more at peace with himself than ever before.
The actor added, “Here at home I am able to do the things that I can never do in Mumbai, like farming my own land, and growing vegetables.' Also read: Nawazuddin Siddiqui And Chandan Roy Sanyal: 'I learnt So Much About Cinema From Buddhadeb Dasgupta' -EXCLUSIVE
