Nawazuddin Siddiqui at the screening of the movie at Cannes Film Festival bluntly – Take the auditorium, click the photo and come back!
Nawazuddin Siddiqui also said in an interview that a good review in Cannes does not guarantee that the film will get a good response in India as well. He gave the example of his film ‘Miss Lovely’ (2012). He further explained how easy it is to get his film screened at a film festival.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui bluntly at the film screening in Cannes
Nawazuddin, 49, said that you take your film, whether it is officially selected or not. He says, ‘Rent an auditorium and pay the owner, roll your own red carpet, take your people, click photos and show your film to the audience. People come back and say, ‘Our film was screened at the Cannes Film Festival.’
Depression was called ‘urban disease’
Earlier, Nawaz had also called depression an ‘urban disease’ and argued that people living in villages do not go into depression and people in cities glorify their feelings. However, he was criticized a lot after this statement.
Had supported the ban on ‘The Kerala Story’!
Reacting to the ban on ‘The Kerala Story’, Nawaz said that if a film is breaking people and disturbing social harmony, then it is very wrong. He said films should promote social harmony and unity, as the aim is to bring people together and not break them.
