Nawazuddin Siddiqui will be next seen in the biographical movie 'Manjhi' where he plays the role of Dashrath Manjhi, known as the mountain man.
Dashrath's wife passed away due to a medical emergency as she could not receive medical aid on time due to them living amidst the mountains. Dashrath took it to his heart and he carved a way out of the mountains for 22 years. But Nawaz says even though he plays a man who did a lot for love, in real life he has been very selfish. “ I have been selfish in love. I don't think I can ever do what Dashrath did for his late wife. I don't have that kind of 'deewanapan' in me. Nevertheless he will always be a source of inspiration for me”, quotes Nawaz.
Also starring Radhika Apte, 'Manjhi' hits the screens on 21st August.
