There’s absolutely no doubting the fact that Nawazuddin Siddiqui is a terrific actor. His talent speaks for himself once the actor is on screen; his impeccable performance, absolutely perfect timing and a knack for expressions, make Siddiqui one of the best actors of Bollywood today.
But it’s not only us who say that. The B-Town actor recently received praise from the famous author of the world best seller book, The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho.
Taking to Twitter, the author pointed out how Sacred Games happened to be the best series on Netflix and Nawazuddin the best actor.

But it gets more interesting as Coelho just didn’t let it end there and mentioned how he had watched Siddiqui’s Manto and Thackeray, both films where he delivered amazing performances.
I watched several movies of yours, including Tackeray and Manto. Congratulations from the bottom of my heart

Nawazuddin Siddiqui wrote how he was overwhelmed to receive praise from an author of Coelho’s stature. His industry friends including Hiten Tejwani and Ronit Roy also mentioned how Siddiqui did deserve all the praise showered upon him from the world over.
