Nawazuddin Siddiqui Breaks Down His 5 Most Iconic Characters, Film Companion
“I have a friend who is an actor. We had been living together for a few years. He used to tell me about the disappointing things that had happened to him. So I imitated him (in the movie). He saw the film when it released – I had moved out by that time – and he messaged me saying, ‘I saw The Lunchbox. Thank you’. While doing this scene (in which he asks Saajan Fernandes, played by Irrfan Khan, to be his guardian as he has no family), I was thinking of him. I portrayed his tragedy truthfully, the way he did. I was crying, but I had a bet with myself that I wouldn’t let it show in my eyes or on my face. My expression couldn’t change or the purpose of the character would be defeated. I tried hard to not make it even a little bit sentimental.”
