Mumbai: Nawazuddin Siddiqui has shared a video on his Twitter profile in which the actor emphasises that for him art comes before religion.

Titled Sixteen Point Six Six, the 55-second video has no dialogues and the 42-year-old actor sends a message across with the help of placards.

In the clip, Siddiqui, through placards, says when he got his DNA test results, the Raees actor found he was each 16.66 per cent Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Christian, Buddhist and every other important religion in the world. But when he 'discovered' his soul, Siddiqui found he is 100 per cent artiste.

The video by the actor comes at a time when the country is witnessing a surge in attacks on minorities.
