Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui has recalled the time when he was axed from Kamal Haasan’s Hey Ram, and the way distraught he was about it. Nawaz mentioned that Kamal’s daughter, Shruti, consoled him.

He mentioned that though there have been many such situations from his earliest days within the movie trade when his roles have been faraway from tasks, Hey Ram harm essentially the most due to how a lot he revered Kamal.

He instructed SpotboyE in an interview, “There were many incidents when I did small roles and then the role was edited out. But the one incident that stays with me involves one of my idols Kamal Haasan. I was his Hindi dialogue coach on his film Hey Ram (2000) which he directed and also played the lead. When Kamalji offered me a small role in Hey Ram I was as excited as a child. He is one of my idols alongside Dilip Kumar, Naseeruddin Shah, Anthony Hopkins and Denzel Washington. I’ve seen each and every film of theirs repeatedly.”

Describing his position, Nawaz continued, “It was actually a substantial role. I was supposed to be this victim of a mob attack whom Kamalji rescues.I was excited about this opportunity to share screen space with my idol.” But when the position was faraway from the ultimate movie, Nawaz mentioned he ‘wept bitterly’ and remembers Shruti consoling him. But, the actor mentioned, he holds no unwell will. “How could I be resentful? Kamalji is such a complete artiste with his knowledge stretching far beyond.Unka toh mujhe naam bhil lene mein hichkichaahat hoti hai (I hesitate to even say his name).”
