Acting professional Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s memoir, An Ordinary Life, out on Oct 25, is very far from standard. He has been honest to the key, including in those parts that spell out his love life.
When you hear what “quite a selfish bastard” or “a rascal who only cared for himself”, you’d envision the loudspeaker is talking about someone else, right? Not so in Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s memoir, An Ordinary Life, out on October 25. Those are his information of himself.
Shocking? That’s because Nawazuddin aka Nawaz has made a decision to be scrupulously honest in his memoir. “Actually, all girls I have have you been with experienced this same grievance from me. I would only come to them for my own needs,” he creates in An Normal Life.
The booklet, alongside his quest to stardom, narrates the minutest details of his love affairs — that includes one with his Miss Lovely (2012) co-star Niharika Singh — and the ones are being lapped up by gossip enthusiasts.
The very thought of people’s a reaction to his unabashed “truth” have make Nawaz jittery. “I have no idea isko bahut sare log kaise judge karenge. Ho sakta hai ek bahut ajeeb si image ban jaye meri… Iss cheez ki mujhe thodi si fikr aur darr bhi hai. But it’s ok. Jo fact hai, maine wohi samne rakhne ki koshish kari. (I have no idea how a whole lot of folks will evaluate this. It is possible that my image changes for the even worse… I’m somewhat worried and fearful about it… But, I’ve only tried to bring the facts to the fore).”

For Bollywood personalities and their supporters, the revelation of such intimate personal stats is explosive — Nawaz has written about a torrid one-night stand with a waitress in NY! But true to how experimental he’s as an acting professional, the copy writer Nawaz is also ready to break stereotypes, even if which means exposing his true self to the world.
“I don’t think I’m a superstar, but I’m a individual first. Har insaan chahta hai, mai kisi ko zarur bataun ki mai kaisa hun. Lekin iss darr se ki log mere baare mein kya sochenge, shayad nahi batata. Yeh insaan ka characteristics hai… Insaan humare Bollywood ki filmon ke hero ki tarahe sarv firearm sampann thodi na hota hai. Insaan ke andar kuchh achchhai hai toh kuchh buraiyan bhi toh hoti hai (Every individual wishes to share their own true do it yourself with someone. But, the fear of people’s conception discourages them from posting it. This is human character… Humans aren’t endowed with just the nice qualities, like our Bollywood heroes. Each real person has something good and something bad about them),” says the acting professional, who did varied motion pictures such as Bajrangi Bhaijaan (2015), Raman Raghav 2.0 (2016), which year’s Mom, and Babumoshai Bandookbaaz.
Nawaz admits that he could’ve chosen to conceal a few of the facts or titles, such as Television acting professional Achint Kaur influencing her flatmate and Nawaz’s first girlfriend Sunita to split up with the then attempting Nawaz. He, however, noticed it necessary to mention all for these reasons: “Kyunki phir fayda nahi tha na book likhne ka. Mujhe maloom hai ki iske baad bahut saare log bura manenge, par nahi to phir mai kyun likh raha hun. Mere paas waqt tha sochne ka ki mai naam dun ya na dun, sach likhun ya nahi, thoda manipulative ho jaun… Bahut waqt mila mujhe, but finally I realised ki yaar karna chahiye — agar likhna hai to sach likho, warna mat likho (Usually, there was no point on paper a book. I understand a lot of men and women will be upset after reading this, but I sensed there was no point in writing without talking about facts. I acquired lots of time to decide, must i give titles or not, must i write the truth or not, should be a little manipulative… I acquired a lot of time to think, but finally I realised that it’s better to do it right — if you must write, then write the truth, or don’t write in any way).”
