Nawazuddin demands a hike!
Nawazuddin demands a hike!

Known for his impressive performances in films like ‘Kahaani’, ‘Talaash’ and ‘Gangs Of Wasseypur’, actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui feels it’s high time he got his due – not in kind but in cash. The stellar actor wants a fee hike for his forthcoming ventures because he believes he deserves it.
“I want to hike my price because that should happen with each actor. It’s just a wish which is unfulfilled. So far I don’t know when this will happen. But I am certain things will change for me,” said Nawazuddin.
After facing many obstacles, the 39-year-old feels happy that he is being approached for lead roles.
“I had lot of hurdles in my journey. People considered me ugly and even used to feel that with the kind of looks I have, I couldn’t pull off a lead role. So, it took too long to remove that tag. Now, the kind of roles that I am getting, I am playing the lead in all of them. So I should be also paid like a lead,” he stressed. Who can argue with that logic?!
Nawazuddin is currently busy promoting his film ‘Miss Lovely’, which is slated for a January 18 release.
