There was a time when Nawazuddin Siddiqui was barred from performing Ram Leela. He was all set to perform at his village in Budhana, but because Shiva Sena had raised an objection over he being a Muslim portraying a Hindu figure, he couldn’t perform and was disappointed.
But now that his son Yaani Siddiqui got a chance to play the role of Krishna in a function, he was beaming with happiness and shared the same on Twitter. Not only that, he also thanked the school for giving his son this beautiful opportunity on Janmashtami.
My childhood dream could not come true, but will definitely be a part of Ramleela next year.

In the recent time, Nawaz has been making headlines for all the discrimination he has faced in the industry. One of the casting directors reportedly made a racist comment against the actor, to which he replied with modesty on Twitter.
This is what he tweeted:
I am glad to the school of my kid . Who gave him an opportunity to play the character of " natkhat nandlala" pic.twitter.com/pJ9V1MHffX

Later, Nawaz also opened up upon how he has been facing racial comments since the time he first thought that he would venture into the world of acting. But again, he says, he remains unfazed.
