From performing a rap song to playing a bangle-seller who romances a village girl, Nawazuddin Siddiqui seems to be in the mood for a dramatic image makeover in his next film, 'Bole Chudiyan.'
Interacting with the press on Saturday evening to promote 'Bole Chudiyan,' Nawaz seemed more excited about talking of his experience as a rapper.
"I am not a singer but I have to say that rapping a song is a different experience, and the credit goes to the music director. Yes, I learned the lyrics and practiced the song, but somewhere it was the music director who extracted the performance from me," he says of his rap contribution in the film's title song, 'Swaggy Chudiyan'. The song will be used in the film in a sequence where his character is seen singing it to sell bangles.
He may be changing his image with 'Bole Chudiyan', but Nawaz, ever the perfectionist, maintains a method approach even while making you understand his decision to sing: "I do not want to be a singer in the near future, but the specific rap song has raw elements that goes well with my voice. That is why they decided to feature my voice," explains Nawaz, who adds that he loves listening to the old Hindi songs.
