Director more important than script: Nawazuddin

Mumbai, (IANS) Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who plays a Pakistani reporter in Salman Khan’s upcoming mega movie “Bajrangi Bhaijaan”, says the director is more important to him than the script.

“A lot of people say script is important, and I agree to some extent. But I feel the director is more important than the script. A good director can create magic with bad or average script, but a bad director can kill even a good script. I am more focused on the director. So for me, director is more important,” Nawazuddin said during a promotional event here on Wednesday.

Nawazuddin had earlier worked with director Kabir Khan in “New York” and with Salman Khan in “Kick”.

This is his second outing with the director and the actor, and he said he was comfortable working with them as he understands their process.

“I know Kabir’s working style, so it brings a comfort zone and I am working with Salman sahab for the second time, so there is a comfort level with him too,” he said.

Nawazuddin will be seen portraying the role of a Pakistani reporter who helps Salman in his journey.

“The biggest task for me is the honesty of the character. The character I am portraying should look authentic, whatever that character might be, I put in all my efforts to achieve it,” he said.

“Bajrangi Bhaijaan”, directed by Kabir Khan, features Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan. It is about a young mute girl from Pakistan who finds herself lost in India with no way to head back over the border to her home.

The film is scheduled for a worldwide release on July 17, during the Eid weekend.
