It’s been a year since Nawazuddin Siddiqui launched his autobiography ‘An Ordinary Life’, which was withdrawn within a few days of its release for objectionable reasons. Now, recently he was asked if he would ever write again and he replied that if he ever writes again he will write just lies.
He says: “Now, if I ever write my memoirs, say 30-40 years from now, I will only tell lies in it. The truth is not palatable to everybody.”
Talking about the book, Nawaz responded: “The entire motive of the endeavour was turned on its head. I wanted to put my story forward so that others from small towns with big dreams could follow in my footsteps. How was I to know that five pages of the book would kill the impact of my entire effort? The book had 209 pages. Only five of those pages were written about over and over again.”
Although Nawaz now agrees that she shouldn’t have mentioned her name, he says: “It was not in good taste to name the ladies. But, I didn’t know any better. I was only trying to tell the truth.”
On work front, Nawaz is busy prepping for the release of his next, ‘Thakrey’, the film is based on the life of politician Bal Thakrey.
