Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who is playing role of a street photographer in his forthcoming film ‘Photograph’, has said that he would like to click pictures of Kareena Kapoor Khan from the Hindi film industry.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui was interacting with the media at ‘Tum Ne Mujhe Dekha’ song launch from his film ‘Photograph’ along with his co-actor Sanya Malhotra and director Ritesh Batra on Friday in Mumbai.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui has worked with Kareena Kapoor Khan in Reema Kagti’s ‘Talaash’ which released in 2012.
When asked Nawazuddin which Hindi film actress photograph he would like to click apart from his co-star Sanya Malhotra, he said, “I will click pictures of Kareena Kapoor Khan because she is really beautiful. I feel she is also good when it comes to posing and giving stance to photographers.”
‘Photograph’ revolves around a street photographer Rafi (Siddiqui), who tries to convince Miloni (Malhotra) to pose as his fiancee so that his grandmother stops pressurising him to get married.
When asked Nawazuddin whether he is a good photographer in real life, he said, “I am not a good photographer in real life. I feel I am a good photographer but when I show photographs clicked by me to others then, they tell me ‘what is so special in the photograph? Anyone can click these kind of photographs’ so, I don’ think I have any special skill when it comes to clicking photographs.”
Nawazudddin Siddiqui is second time collaborating with filmmaker Ritesh Bhatra in ‘Photograph; after their critically acclaimed film ‘The Lunchbox’, sharing his experience working with Ritesh Batra in ‘Photograph’, Nawazuddin said, “When I earlier worked with Ritesh in ‘The Lunchbox’, that time he gave me a lot of liberty so, I thought we will work together in same manner in ‘Photograph’ as well but it was really different process of Ritesh while working on this film. Ritesh used to deal with every actor differently and I had a kind of new experience working with Ritesh in this film.”
‘Photograph’ is a coming-of-age romantic comedy-drama film written, co-produced and directed by Ritesh Batra.
It stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Sanya Malhotra in the lead roles.
‘Photograph’ is scheduled to release 15 March 2019.
