Versatile Nawazuddin now wants fee hike

Mumbai, Jan 7 : Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui, known for roles in films "Kahaani", "Talaash" and "Gangs of Wasseypur, says he wants his fee to be increased now.

"I want to hike my price because that should happen with each actor. It's just a wish which is unfulfilled. So far I don't know when this will happen. But I am certain things will change for me," said Nawazuddin.

After facing many obstacles, the 39-year-old feels happy that he is being approached for lead roles.

"I had lot of hurdles in my journey. People used to feel that with the kind of looks I have, I can't pull off a lead role. So, it took too long to remove that tag. Now, the kind of roles that I am getting, I am playing lead in all of them. I am thankful to the industry for accepting me," he said.

He says the most difficult job is to choose the right script.

"There are lots of things to be considered before signing a film. Even people try to offer you lot of money to be part of their film but if you are after money then your career will come to an end within two years. It's my duty to sign good films for which I am known for," he said.

Nawazuddin is currently busy promoting his film "Miss Lovely", which is slated for Jan 18 release.
