Siddiqui candidly referred to his past use of marijuana as a 'mistake' and emphasized that he does not want to promote such activities. He acknowledged the fun he had, admitting, "I realized later that I don’t want to promote it. I have made mistakes but the benefit was that the travelling was fun." His honest recounting of those days included memories of celebrating Holi, the Indian festival of colors, where he would consume bhaang and feel an overwhelming sense of euphoria. He reminisced about the times he would feel like a legendary character from Indian mythology, performing for hours on end, immersed in his own world.

He humorously recalled how, under the influence of bhaang, he would perform various mythological characters such as Ashwatthama, Karn, and Krishna, continuously from morning till night. These performances were so immersive that he often found himself repeating the same dialogues throughout the day. Friends and onlookers would later point out his repetitive behaviour, calling him crazy. His animated performances took place in parks, buses, and wherever he found an audience, showcasing his passionate and uninhibited side.

Despite these entertaining memories, Siddiqui stressed that he no longer engages in such activities and advises the youth to avoid them as well. His transformation from those carefree days to his current stance reflects his growth and awareness of the potential pitfalls associated with substance use.

On the professional front, Nawazuddin Siddiqui is preparing for the release of his upcoming film, "Rautu Ka Raaz." In this film, he will be seen playing the role of a cop in a small, serene town named Rautu Ki Beli in Uttarakhand, which has not witnessed a murder in over 15 years. This new project promises to be an intriguing addition to Siddiqui's diverse filmography. "Rautu Ka Raaz" is set to premiere on Zee5 on June 28, and fans are eagerly anticipating his performance in this crime thriller.
