Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui is one of the talented and versatile actors of the industry but it seems that he is still facing a tough time because of his unconventional looks. The actor has posted a cryptic tweet that indicates that racialism still prevails in Bollywood. Nawaz carved his niche in the film industry and proved that acting in films is much more than chiselled body and good looks. Interestingly, the actor has worked with all three Khans of Bollywood.

In a cryptic tweet, the 43-year-old actor posted on Twitter, he hinted at having a run-in with racism recently. "Thank you for making me realise that I cannot be paired along with the fair and handsome because I'm dark and not good looking, but I never focus on that," Nawaz tweeted. 

The actor, however, did not divulge any further details regarding the incident which prompted him to write the post on the microblogging site. 
Last year in an interview, Nawazuddin had praised the film industry for giving priority to talent over good looks. He had claimed that there is no racism in Bollywood. We wonder, why the actor has posted this cryptic tweet.

Nawaz was lately seen in Sridevi starrer MOM.
