Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who wowed us all in Sridevi starrer Mom, is breaking the internet today for all the right reasons. The actor recently took to social media and hinted at racism in Bollywood. His powerful statement caught much attention and we couldn’t help but nod in agreement.Challenging all stereotypes that one needs to be fair and handsome to make it big in the industry, Nawazuddin has surely come a long way. However, the actor was prompted to make his point in a recent tweet.
Taking to his official Twitter handle, the Kahani actor said, “Thank U 4 making me realise dat I cannot b paired along wid d fair & handsome bcz I m dark & not good looking, but I never focus on that”.

While such strong statement created much all around, this is not the first time that Nawazuddin Siddqui made huge headline for his candid quotes. Nawaz, who has carved a niche in the Hindi film industry without fulfilling the conventional criteria to quality oneself as an actor, has always been outspoken and upbeat about his opinions.
Here are some eye-opening statements of Nawazuddin that prove why Bollywood needs more actors like him.
“Hi, I am Nawazuddin. I had got my DNA test done and when the report came in, I found that I am …”
“I don’t think nepotism exists in Bollywood otherwise I could not have been in this position today. Good work and talent may take the time to get recognised but always earns respect”.
“Bollywood doesn't need more reality it needs truth”.
“Never in my life did I think that would need to promote a film or tell people, 'Dekho hamari film'.
"My motti is Kaam Karo aur Daffa Ho Jao"
