Nawaz was scared of working with Shah Rukh


From playing an aid to Salman Khan in ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ to sharing the frame with Aamir Khan in thriller ‘Talaash’, Nawazuddin Siddiqui now shares screen space with Shah Rukh Khan in ‘Raees’. Speaking about his first tryst with the Badshah, Nawaz reveals, “I was a bit scared initially. But when we started shooting the scenes, I felt like normal actors, the way we work in theatre. Over the time, we developed a camaraderie.” While Shah Rukh Khan plays a baddie in ‘Raees’, Nawazuddin takes on the role of a cop who is a taskmaster.
