Nawazuddin Siddiqui is back with another unique role! He will soon be seen in the noir revenge drama 'Haddi', wherein he essays the role of a transgender woman. The Bollywood star left everyone stunned when he shared his first look from his upcoming film. Dressed in a green saree, Nawazuddin looks completely unrecognisable as he flaunts his glamorous and never-seen-before transgender avatar. The actor has undergone a major makeover for the abovementioned role. 

For Haddi, Nawazuddin has worked with more than 80+ real-life transgender women. Opening up about his experience, the actor said, “Working with real-life trans women has been an incredible experience in Haddi, an honour and a privilege to understand & learn more about the community. Their presence was empowering." 

Dropping the look, Nawzuddin shared his experience of interactions with real-life transgender women and wrote, “From working with the transgender community on sets to playing one, the experience of shooting ‘Haddi’ has been surreal for @Nawazuddin._siddiqui #FromTheSetsOfHaddi #Haddi releasing in 2023. @akshat_ajay @piyushputy @zee5 @zeemusiccompany @zeecinema."

Nawauddin takes three hours to get his hair, make-up and outfit done for his female look in Haddi. Speaking about the same he shared, "My daughter was very upset when she saw me dressed as a woman. She now knows that it’s for a role and is fine now. I must say this, after this experience, I have huge respect for actresses who do this on a daily basis."

"Itna saara taam jhaam hota hai. Hair, make-up, kapde, nails... pura sansar leke chalna padta hai. Now I know why an actress may take longer than her male counterpart to get out of her vanity van. It’s absolutely justified. I will have more patience now (laughs)!" he added.

Haddi, written and directed by Akshat Ajay Sharma, is slated to hit the screens in 2023.
