Nawazuddin Siddiqui: 'Bollywood needs to experiment with other genres'

Nawazuddin Siddiqui has said that Bollywood should be less close-minded about other genres. The actor can currently be seen in the horror Aatma, starring opposite Bipasha Basu. He told The Times of India: "Frankly I don't understand why horror films are shunned by A-list actors in B-Town! "In fact I feel that the so-called romance genre in B-Town are B/C category, because there has been no growth in the romantic movies that Bollywood films churn out every year. It's high time that Bollywood experimented with other genres.

"I am inspired by real stories that involve emotions, relationships and what is actually happening in the society. And the audiences also connect with such movies. "The fact that Gangs of Wasseypur, Kahaani or Talaash worked shows there is an intelligent audience. Otherwise I would not have even existed." In December, the Kahaani star said that he is only interested in taking on the lead roles in films in the future. The actor also stars in a segment of the upcoming portmanteau film Bombay Talkies.
