New Delhi, May 13 -- Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui has quite a fan following, not only in India but abroad as well.

The actor got a taste of his fan following recently when he was shooting for his film in Bihar. When the cast was busy shooting, a group of foreigners landed up on the sets as they were big fans of the actor's performance in his film, The Lunchbox (2013).

"There was a group of tourists who stopped to look at Nawaz while he was shooting. The crowd pointed at him and kept referring to him as the 'Lunchbox dude'," says a source who was present on the sets.

The actor was surprised but overwhelmed with the attention, and obliged the group with pictures and autographs.

"The fans were so excited to see Nawaz and requested him to get clicked with them. Although Nawaz was clueless about how they recognised him, he was more than happy to get photographed with his fans. In fact, the shoot was stopped for a few minutes so Nawaz could spend some time with the foreigners," adds the source.
