After rising to fame with his much acclaimed 'Gangs of Wasseypur', Nawazuddin Siddiqui has said he was flooded with offers but he decided to go slow and choose good scripts.
While speaking at the trailer launch of his upcoming "Babumoshai Bandookbaaz", Nawazuddin said "I don't have the stature to reject films. But there are several reasons to say no to a film. May be you're busy with something else, you see how a character should not resemble an earlier one."
"After 'Gangs' (Of Wasseypur), I got around 200 scripts, if I had signed them then, I wouldn't have been here till now. There comes a time when on has to think and act", he told reporters.
The actor said he had seen the downfall of his close friends and has learned from their mistakes.
"I have seen a lot of friends, very good actors, going up and falling down. There was only one reason, they became greedy in signing films."
"I never did that. I said 'I have time, neither I am going anywhere nor the films'. One should take time in signing films if they are aiming for the long run," he added.
In the trailer of his upcoming flick, one can see a glimpse of his criminal avatar from 'Gangs...'. It drops major hints about the plot of the movie, it even promises another breath-taking performance by Siddiqui.
Helmed by Kushan Nandy, 'Babumoshai Bandookbaaz' also stars Divya Dutta, Bidita Bag, Jatin Goswami, Shraddha Das and Anil George in key roles.
The movie is slated to release on August 25.
