But Anurag Kashyap has ruined me, he always gives the gun in my hand.”
Nawaz was then asked what type of roles he likes to do, Nawaz replied: "I love doing challenging roles. With each film, I want to try something new. I hate doing roles in my comfort zone... I want to be a versatile actor. Now I look up to only new, different and challenging roles for me, You have got only one life, try experimenting new things... and that's what I want to do.''
Nawaz then carry forwarded the conversation and talked about the kind of preparations the actor had to do in order to excel the character of Bal Thackeray, he said: "It was a tough and challenging role for me because he was an iconic figure and while doing the film on him, the only thing which remained in my mind was that through my actions, I have to do justice to the role. So, I researched a lot about him, I watched a lot of his videos, speeches and Sanjay Raut (writer) helped me in giving details about Balasaheb ji's life.''
Thackeray is slated to hit the theatres on January 25.
