Throwback: Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s wife’s fun banter with Anurag Kashyap as the actor repeats ‘Raman Raghav’ dialogues while being unconscious
Anurag Kashyap once talked about how Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s wife called him when he kept repeating the dialogues of the film ‘Raman Raghav 2.0’ even while he was lying sick in the hospital.
Anurag Kashyap says “He got dengue and he was in the hospital. While in the hospital, he was only, constantly blabbering lines from Raman Raghav as if he was literally living the character. He was on high fever and his wife called me, ‘What have you done to him? He’s just talking non-stop, lines from the movie’ and I got scared, he was really affected by it. He becomes like that. He likes to live there, he likes to stay there, he actually prefers that world, he escapes into that world.”
Later on in an interview with Huffpost Nawazuddin Siddiqui recalled the incident and said “She called up Anurag and say ‘” (What are you doing)?’” Then he even told what did the director replied. He said “But issi mein toh mazaa hai (that is the fun)! To be able to work with Salman-Shah Rukh and also do films like these.”
