Over the decades, the birthday boy has garnered a huge fan base. Being one of the most versatile actors of the Bollywood industry, he has never shied away from performing a certain character. Be it a cameo, a full-fledged villain, or a hero, he has impressed the audience with his versatility.

In ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’, he acted as if the film was actually made for him as he just nailed it by his smooth and flawless acting. After this, he became one of the most efficient actors in Bollywood.
In the movie ‘Manjhi: The Mountain Man’, his acting and his unconditional love for his dead wife brought us to tears. It was only he who efficiently managed to hold the character of a poor raged farmer and made every scene look surreal.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui as Dayashankar Kapoor aka DK is a real charmer in ‘Mom’. He knows exactly when to switch gears and how to look timid despite being in the spotlight.
He was never behind the race when it comes to the OTT platform. He made his mark into it by acing his part as a police officer in Raat Akeli Hai. Nawazuddin ensured that viewers got to see a paradigm shift in his character personification which was again accentuated with his role of a doting father in ‘Serious Men’.
Nawaz as an artist has tried his hands at various forms – be it theatre, films, or web series.
