New York:

Nawazuddin Siddiqui lost the International Emmy for Best Actor (to David Tenant, no less) but he still feels like a winner. Speaking to NDTV on the red carpet at the award show in New York, the 47-year-old actor said, “We will win today, tomorrow or ten years later but the good thing is at least we are reaching here. I am happy with the nomination, at least our films are reaching here. Feels good to make India proud.” Nawazuddin was nominated for his performance as Ayyan Mani in Serious Men; the Best Actor award went to David Tennant who played serial killer Dennis Nilsen in the miniseries Des.

This was Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s second year at the International Emmys; he was at the award show in 2019 with two shows competing for Best Drama – Sacred Games and McMafia, which won. This year, he was up for the Sudhir Mishra-directed Serious Men playing a father who passes off his young son as a genius.

Ahead of the International Emmys, Nawazuddin wrote in an Instagram post: “#SeriousMen was a dream project for many reasons and one of them was working with the great director Sudhir Mishra. It’s an honour to be nominated for the prestigious Emmys. I still cannot forget my last experience here. I’m overjoyed as this is my second time at the Emmys and that too with a Netflix title.”
