Critically acclaimed actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui is always open to interacting with his fans but after an admirer recently dragged him for a selfie, he has learnt that occasionally he needs to be "more careful".
Last month, he was in Kanpur, shooting for "Raat Akeli Hai". In a video that surfaced online, he can be seen surrounded by fans. One of his over-enthusiastic fans dragged him for a selfie.
Asked if he is scared of getting close to his fans now, Nawazuddin Siddiqui said in an e-mail interview: "I am always open to meeting and interacting with my fans. But I have learnt that I need to be more careful... This is something I did not really think about.
"But it does not mean that I won't interact with them because they are very important to me and they rightfully deserve the respect," added the actor, who is followed by 2.59 million people on Twitter.
Apart from this film, the Thackeray actor has more projects lined up such as Bole Chudiyan. He is also happily fronting advertisements of online poker brand PokerStars India.
"I'm really pleased to be associated with PokerStars India and to be featured in India's first ever poker TV commercial. Poker is a skill-based game and not a game of luck and the three TV commercials portray this aspect in a great way. They are small sitcoms which have come out very well and I am extremely happy about it," he said. (IANS)
