5 Years of Manto: “This shall remain closest to my heart forever,” says Nawazuddin Siddiqui!

Nawazuddin Siddiqui is one of the most versatile actors in Indian cinema and is renowned for his unparalleled acting prowess. The versatile actor has played many of the real-life characters that he has breathed life into with his exceptional and unparalleled performances. One of the characters he played is Saadat Hasan Manto. Nawazuddin stepped easily into the shoes of the character, and with his commanding screen presence, he brought the character of Pakistani writer, playwright, and author Manto alive on the screen. The biographical drama film directed by Nandita Das traces the journey of Manto, and Nawazuddin aced every layer of the character so sharply and perfectly on screen. As the film has completed its five years of release today, Nawazuddin Siddiqui has taken to social media and hailed the film as the most special film of his career.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s performance in Manto demonstrated that no other actor in the business can compete with him when it comes to portraying a character in a biographical drama. One of the more challenging characters he has ever played is Manto, for whom he went above and beyond his bounds of duty. Nawazuddin Siddiqui posted a photo of himself online dressed as Manto and wrote a touching note in commemoration of the movie’s fifth anniversary. The actor captioned his photo with
“#Manto shall remain closest to my heart forever.
My personal favourite film, completes 5 years today.
Thank You everyone”
