Bollywood actors are gradually returning to work as the second wave of COVID-19 pandemic has eased considerably. But Nawazuddin Siddiqui is in no hurry to resume shooting.
“I know lockdown is being eased in Mumbai and that shooting is being resumed .We are allowed to shoot from 9 am to 4 pm. That’s good news. But I am not sure whether it is the right time yet to get back to shooting,” Nawaz told SpotBoye.
The accomplished actor, is currently in his hometown Budhana in Uttarakhand, and feels at peace with himself.
“Here at home I am able to do the things that I can never do in Mumbai, like farming my own land, and growing vegetables.”
He wants to take it easy for some time to come.
“I’ve worked enough in the past few years. I can take it easy for as long as I want. I know there is a truckload of work waiting for me. But until I feel safe, I can’t return to shooting. My heart is not willing,” he said.
Among his pending assignments are his brother Shamas’ directorial venture Bole Chudiya.
“From 2020 to April 2021, I completed two films, Sangeen and Jogira Sa Ra Ra. I also finished a major portion of my brother Shamas’ film Bole Chudiya, shot a music video and sang and shot for Bole Chudiyan. I also shot seven ads. This is enough work for the year. Even if I don’t get to work for the rest of the year, I am okay with it.”
