"Sudhir Mishra, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, And Serious Man Took 2 Decades".

If the person believes in the beauty of his dreams, he will surely succeed. Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui is the perfect personification of how success comes from never giving up. The ‘Raat Akeli Hai’ actor posted the 20 years before the incident on his Instagram handle.

In his post, he stated that it was his dream to work with Sudhir Mishra for 20 years. And now as he is playing the lead role in Sudhir Mishra’s ‘Serious Man’. His dream has finally fulfilled after so many years.

The Instagram of Nawazuddin read, “In the year 2000 when the film Calcutta Mail was being shot, an assistant director promised to introduce me to the film’s director, Sudhir Mishra. He told me, ‘Come to the set but come close only when I raise my hand.’ As promised, I reached the set and waited in the crowd, waiting for the assistant director to raise his hand so I could rush to meet Mishra Ji.”
“After around an hour, the assistant director raised his hand and I swiftly navigated my way through the crowd and reached his chair. Mishra ji was sitting right next to him. The assistant director saw me and asked, ‘What is it?’ I replied, ‘You raised your hand, so I came.’ He said, ‘I raised my hand to scratch myself, go back and come only when I raise my hand,’” he added.
Nawazuddin returned to the crowd but kept his eyes peeled for the assistant director to raise his hand, vowing to pay attention to whether it was a gesture or if he was simply scratching himself. Though the actor hung around on the set for a long time, the assistant director did not raise his hand again, even to scratch himself.
“They all got busy with the shoot and like every day, I dissolved into the Mumbai crowd, thinking that he scratched his itch but left my dream of working with Sudhir Mishra unfulfilled. That dream came true 20 years later… #SeriousMen,” he wrote.
He captioned his post, “बीस साल बाद...#seriousman”
Serious Men, a cinematic adaptation of Manu Joseph’s book of the same name, will be released on Netflix. The film revolves around a slum-dweller who spins a web of lies about his young son is a genius, in order to achieve the upward mobility he has always craved.
