Just when the issue of nepotism was dominating the Bollywood, another serious incident happened recently. Highly talented actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui took to Twitter and shared his disappointment about someone thinking that he is not good looking.
Nawaz rightfully wrote and said that he never focuses on that. An actor is known for his acting skills and Nawaz has abundance of it.
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.

This tweet was actually a response to the racist comment from Babumoshai Bandookbaaz‘s casting director Sanjay Chouhan who had said during recent media interaction that they can’t cast fair and handsome people with Nawaz. That would look weird.
This is a ridiculous statement where a person is judged by his looks and color. Nawazuddin has given so many amazing performances in films like Gangs of Wasseypur, Kahaani, Raees, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Haraamkhor, Raman Raghav 2.0 yet if someone focuses on pointless things, it’s a shame.
Hats off to Nawazuddin Siddiqui for his response.
