Nawazuddin Siddiqui's list of honors keep on increasing. He lately added another feather? to his cap. He was given the Best Actor award at the 15th New York Indian Film Festival (NYIFF) lately.
Fascinatingly, he received the award for a movie titled Haramkhor which is yet to release in India. There is no word or whisper about the movie's release date here at all. Nawazuddin was aware that he was nominated for the award but was astonished that he won. He has been busy shooting for Kabir Khan's Bajrangi Bhaijaan in Kashmir and hasn't had the time to pay attention to anything else at the moment. In addition to this his cell has limited reception which meant that he was cut off from news for long periods of time. Because of Bajrangi Bhaijaan's tight schedule, he will be incapable to go to New York to personally collect the award. But, he took to Twitter recently to tell, "This award is certainly an honour, thank you so much #NYIFF ". Siddiqui will also be seen in Raees along with Shah Rukh Khan.
