For Bollywood’s unconventional hero, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, it’s never about making a commercial film. Maybe that’s why when his films don’t mint numbers at the box office, it doesn’t really affect him. Siddiqui’s portrayal as the controversial Pakistani writer, Saadat Hasan Manto – as the actor predicted – wasn’t that well received. And he was prepared for the underwhelming response it garnered from the audience. But except for Netflix’s Sacred Games, Siddiqui hasn’t really managed to deliver a blockbuster.
