Nawazuddin Siddiqui to write his rags to riches story; autobiography out in September
This year started on a controversial note when filmmaker Karan Johar and veteran actor Rishi Kapoor released their respective autobiographies. Now, actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui is all set to hop on the bandwagon.
Koimoi.com reports that Siddiqui has been working on his memoir titled, The Incredible Life Of The Drama King Of India, for a long time now. He will be unraveling his rags to riches story in conversation with journalist Rituparna Chatterjee.
The book will chronicle his early days as a villager and a farmer's son, touch upon his phase as a theatre artist and document his exhausting struggle in the Hindi film industry and the eventual recognition that he received from the viewers.
Mid-Day quotes him as saying, "No one knows about my childhood and what it takes for a farmer's child, who lived in a joint family, to enter this field and make a name. Achieving this life could have only been a distant dream. The contribution of my parents and my village in helping me become what I am today has been immense, and makes for a major chunk of the book. Also, my theatre days have been beautifully chronicled. I think there's a lot of masala in there for people to read."
The book is scheduled to be launched in September.
