Nawazuddin Siddiqui has a tremendous body of work to his credit but when the actor started making his way in the movies, he was labelled as the ‘unconventional’ hero. In a recent interview, Nawazuddin shared that for many years, even he believed that he is “not a good looking guy” but gained confidence in himself much later. And once he did, he realised that it is essential to be confident about the way you look.

Talking to Bollywood Bubble, the Sacred Games actor said that like many others, he was also sucked into the world of fairness creams but gradually realised that there is nothing to it. “I was insecure in my early days because of the colour of my skin. I used to apply a lot of creams but nothing changed. Later, I realised it is what it is,” he said. The actor added that since others around him perceived him to be a not-so-good looking person, he also believed the same but it changed when he got out of that atmosphere. “I believed for a long time that I am not a good looking guy. But when I went out then I realised that I am okay, my face is fine.”

Nawazuddin Siddiqui said that the insecurity starts setting in because of the people that are around. He said, “It is very important to be confident about the way you look. The insecurity that comes in usually comes in from other people.” But, he added that one has to reach that place where they are confident in their skin and start accepting the way they look.

The Bajrangi Bhaijaan actor started his career at a time when there was a huge divide between the so-called ‘conventional’ and ‘unconventional’ looking actors and he shared that he too fought that battle for almost a decade. “It took me 10-12 years to prove that I am an actor. But that distinction [of conventional vs unconventional looks] will always stay because people have a certain perception and image in their mind. But that is the struggle and it will always be there,” he said but also added that the audience is much more accepting now.
