When Nawazuddin Siddiqui talked about how portraying Manto made him more honest and frank, it was a revelation.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui is one of his generation’s most well-known actors. The actor has progressed from bit parts and extras to leading roles in award-winning films and commercial blockbusters over the course of his long career. As he celebrates his birthday—appropriately at the Cannes Film Festival—a look back at when the actor revealed how his immersive acting process can be a stumbling block at times.

In his biopic Manto, Nawazuddin played the controversial Urdu writer Saadat Hasan Manto. Nawazuddin attempted to imbibe Manto’s qualities and attributes in order to get into the skin of his character. In a previous interview, the actor admitted that this backfired because he became too blunt and truthful in his real life and paid the price. Around the time of the film’s release, Nawazuddin was involved in a number of controversies, the majority of which stemmed from his tell-all memoir.

“You are not a computer,” he told The Times of India in an interview. So playing a character like Manto has an effect on you, and you must try to break free from it because you must move on to the next character, the next project, where you must begin from scratch. For the next 10-12 days after the shoot, I was still in the same emotional state. ‘This character needs to get out of my head soon, or else it will be bad for me,’ I told Nandita (Das, the director). Because I had become too honest and truthful at the time. Us waqt itna zyada sach bolne laga tha ki maine apni band bajwa li

The actor is currently in Cannes as part of an Indian delegation led by Union Minister for Information and Broadcasting Anurag Thakur, where he walked the red carpet. “Representing India is always special,” Nawazuddin told Hindustan Times about his birthday celebrations in Cannes. It doesn’t matter if it’s my birthday or another day. Because Cannes is held around the same time every year, I’ve spent five to six of my birthdays there. I am not one of those people who celebrates birthdays. It’s like any other day.”

Food blogger attacked by Swara Bhasker for boasting about being a vegetarian on Twitter: “Smug self-righteousness”

Food blogger attacked by Swara Bhasker for boasting about being a vegetarian on Twitter: “Smug self-righteousness”

In response to food blogger Nalini Unagar’s “proud to be a vegetarian” tweet, actor Swara Bhasker attacked Unagar. On Sunday, Nalini posted a photo of her lunch at X. It included a paneer dish and fried rice.

What was said by the food blogger?
Nalini shared the picture and added, “I’m happy to be a vegetarian. There are no more tears, cruelty, or guilt on my platter.”

This is Swara’s response.
In response, Swara penned, “To be honest… I find vegetarians’ arrogant self-righteousness to be incomprehensible. Denying the calf its mother’s milk, forcing cows to become pregnant, ripping them from their calves, and taking their milk are the main components of your diet.”

Furthermore, she said, “You eat root vegetables? That eliminates the entire plant! Just because it’s Bakr Eid, don’t stress about virtue signalling (folded hands emojis). June 16–17 is when Bakr Eid, or Eid al-Adha, is observed.

Swara just had her Eid celebration.
A few months after celebrating Eid al-Fitr, Swara posted a tweet. She celebrated the occasion with her daughter Raabiyaa and spouse Fahad Ahmad. On her Instagram Stories, Swara posted snippets of her Eid festivities. Swara and Raabiyaa were shown in one of the stories pointing at the Eid ka Chaand. Another photo shows Swara, her daughter, and Fahad posing as a family. Fahad is Muslim, but Swara is Hindu.

When Swara discussed the cultures of her and Fahad
Swara performed a chhathi puja for Raabiyaa the previous year. She revealed tidbits from the festivities and reported discovering shared cultural experiences with Fahad’s family. “The child is a mish mash of the mish mash we are,” Swara had wrote. She therefore has 62.5% UP, 12.5% Bihar, and 25% Andhra. Furthermore, I support representation and am always up for a celebration! Furthermore, since our wedding, we’ve learned that Muslims and Hindus in North India have common cultural customs, which strengthens my conviction that, despite our variety, love and joy will always find a language.”

“Chhathhi, or the sixth day of a child’s birth, is celebrated throughout UP Bihar. Mom and kid dress in the colour of turmeric or haldi, and aunts or bua put kaajal on the child and parents to protect them from ‘nazar,’ or the evil eye! I’m performing a well-known “sohar”—celebration songs for new babies. Although sohars are often used to celebrate newborn boys, I customised it for a newborn girl—oh! And although sisters and aunts sing the sohars, mothers don’t, so I thought, “Why not?” Dholak aa gaya hai! Thank you to @manisha2967 for the Chhathhi lesson and the beautiful singing I was able to do, and to Bhanu ji @partapsinghb11 for the dholak that helped make my singing pleasant.
