Mumbai, March 21 -- Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who started off doing character roles as well as smaller films, seems to be going mainstream now.
After tasting success with the blockbuster Kick (2014), he was appreciated for his act in the recently released Badlapur. Now, the actor, who is shooting with both Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan simultaneously, is quite excited about his list of releases this year.
"I am part of two big-budget films. While Bajrangi Bhaijaan starring Salman is releasing on Eid this year, I am not officially told about the release of the one with Shah Rukh. But this year has started very well for me," says Nawaz.
The actor feels that, just like 2012, in which he had hits such as Paan Singh Tomar, Kahaani and Gangs Of Wasseypur series among others, this year, too, will be fulfilling for him. He is also playing a pivotal role in a Ketan Mehta directorial, based on the life of a mountaineer, which is likely to release this year.
"This year is as exciting as 2012, as I have three to four releases," adds Nawaz.
