Nawazuddin Siddiqui is going through some turmoil in his personal and professional life. The Raman Raghav actor had released his memoir, ‘An Ordinary Life’ recently. He had mentioned the names of his ex-girlfriends who then sent legal notices to him for mentioning their names without consent in the book. He also received a lot of backlash on social media, and he had to then withdraw the book. He has also been accused of cheating on his wife and spying on her, although such claims have been refuted by him.
He spoke to a leading daily about his memoir and said, “I think writing the book was a big mistake. I regret that. It’s sad that in a book with 209 pages, only five pages were highlighted. Everything else was ignored. It was also my fault for naming two or three people from my life back then. But I also apologized for it later.”
He added, “In a memoir you have to tell the truth. If you start compromising with fact, then it becomes lopsided and it’s also easy to glorify yourself. But I wrote the truth. I wrote about my struggles, my life, the mistakes I made when I was stupid, and how I became a better person after I learnt from my mistakes. But it backfired. If and when I write something after 10-12 years, I will write only lies. The world doesn’t deserve the truth.”
Nawazuddin Siddiqui will be next seen in Manto and the biopic of Bal Thackeray. A lot of fans has condemned the actor for signing on to play the role of Thackeray in the biopic.
