Nawazuddin Siddiqui alleges colour discrimination: Dark side of a racist Bollywood?

Share

Nawazuddin Siddiqui, one of the most dynamic actors of Bollywood, recently hinted towards racism and discrimination in the industry through a cryptic tweet on his Twitter account.

Later, the actor clarified that "someone" he would not like to name made him tweet in such a manner and that all of Bollywood is not propelled by a fixation on fair complexion.

The casting director of Babumoshai Bandookbaaz, Sanjay Chouhan said to our sources that "Nawaz was on the project even before its inception". However, Chouhan later said that his comment was misconstrued. You need actors who could match his stature. "I don't know from where the ' fair and handsome' bit came but I never said the words", Chouhan said.

Trump's second meeting with Putin draws scrutiny
First lady Melania Trump was seated next to Putin , and the president approached Putin at the end of the night, the official said. It has not been confirmed what Putin and Trump discussed as relations remain strained between Russian Federation and the US.

Nawaz who will be next seen in Munna Michael along with Tiger Shroff is on a promotional spree for the film.

He said this in response to a tweet that he can not be paired with handsome heroines of Bollywood. It's not that the entire industry is like that. "People say, get a fair wife". Unlike nepotism bringing forward the talents, Nawaz belongs to those very few flairs who were popularized due to their skills in the industry. "So these things are there everywhere, not just in Bollywood". Log pehle se hi mind prepare karke chalte hain ki hero toh aisa hi hota hai. According to the casting director, it would have looked weird. The statement reflects a very unsafe thought process and that is why I reacted. "At that point of time I had a thought so I shared it".

"People have their own perceptions. Main wahi aadmi hu jo desh se bahar jaake good-looking ho jata hoon, ya good-looking logon se milta hoon toh good-looking ho jata hoon". "Whatever was said now is something I have been hearing since my childhood". No doubt his hard works paid off in all the blockbuster movies Gangs Of Wasseypur, Kahaani, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Raees, and Haraamkhor. So this bias is not specific to any industry. "It's a fact that such ideas do exist". He added, "They used to tell me I'm not a hero material". I don't focus or get bothered by what others think about my looks.
