Nawazuddin Siddiqui denied about his rivalry with Irrfan Khan. “We were never friends earlier also and not now as well. We work together whenever we are cast in a film together. In the future if I get to work with him I will surely do it. There is no rivalry with him. There is nothing like that. He is my senior and I respect him a lot,” said Nawazuddin.
“We were never in touch with anyone. Every actor works on various projects and happens to meet a lot of people and then you become busy with other commitments… So there is not much time to talk or meet. Why will I follow his path, I know how to work and I am doing it in my own way. I have never followed anyone’s path. I am doing films in my own way,” he added. Now they are working together for the ‘The Lunchbox’.
