Nawazuddin Siddiqui on His Role in Oscar-Nominated ‘Lion’

Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who was also a part of Garth Davis’ Oscar-nominated, Lion says he is very happy doing films in India and is not interested in small roles in international films.

The actor added that he could not say no to Lion because of Garth but he doesn’t consider the film his international launch.

I’ve no interest in doing small parts in international films just to be visible abroad. I’m very happy with the work that I am getting here in my own country. Of course, I’m open to offers from any part of the world – Why just Hollywood? – as long as the part is interesting.
