Nawazuddin Siddiqui is undoubtedly one of the best actors of the 21st century. After years of struggle and toil, he has made himself a respectable place in Bollywood. With immense talent and noticeable screen presence, Nawaz is definitely one of the most loved actors in the country right now.

But it seems like his looks are given more importance than his talent by some of the folks in Bollywood.

His upcoming release, Babumoshai Bandookbaaz, is generating a lot of buzz, thanks to its powerful trailer. In a recent interview with Deccan Chronicle, Sanjay Chouhan, the casting director of the film, said:

“Keeping Nawaz in mind, all other characters were taken on board. We can’t cast fair and handsome people with Nawaz. It would look so weird. You have to take people with distinct features and personalities when pairing them with him.”

Nawazuddin Siddiqui was clearly unhappy with the casting director’s statement and made his voice heard with this tweet.

Director Hansal Mehta tweeted in Nawazuddin’s support.

Twitterati also didn’t shy away from showing their support to the talented actor.

After all, who doesn’t love watching Nawazuddin Siddiqui on the big screen?
