Top News Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s biography An Ordinary Life is a biography written by Rituparna Chatterjee From the excerpts that have come to us we can definitely say that Nawazuddin has made sure that the book is as candid as possible Here’s an excerpt from the tell-all book Nawazuddin Siddiqui: (My first relationship) was like rain after a spell of drought I was performing in a play in Mumbai which was when I finally had my first romantic relationship Incidentally she too happened to be an NSD graduate though we had never met there It was very sweet like rain is after a very long spell of drought Sunita had fallen madly in love with me Every day she would come over hang out at my house in Mira Road and scrawl our names in tiny font all over the wall You remember those old-fashioned hearts with the names of lovers in it sometimes with an arrow across it sometimes without Her doodles were something like that It seemed to my roommates that every day she covered one wall with her art of love We saw each other for about a year and a half She was a Pahari girl Then she went off on a holiday to her home town in the hills to see her folks When she returned Sunita would not take any of my calls And when she did at last I was flabbergasted After such a deep passionate love she simply said ‘Nawaz you focus on your career And I will focus on my career’ She cut off all contact after that and I plunged into another deep deep depression I took a bucket of fresh white paint and began to replace her artwork on my walls with the blank canvas that they were before With every brush-stroke I tried to erase her off my heart as well But of course the brush refused to do double duty and erased only the marks on the walls not the scars on my heart Living in Mira Road meant that the local train was our lifeline We were at the station almost all the time Soon after her call one day I was at the station and stood there staring at the tracks A train was coming screaming its arrival with a lusty horn It would be simple and instant Should I jump on to the tracks and end it all End this struggle end this life I had nothing No love no work no money But some being woke up in me and gave me a metaphorical slap ‘You know this is not your department’ the voice in my head said ‘Then why Why did you go that way Why’ it screamed at me The train sped away screaming pompously cutting through the air Simultaneously I cut off my emotions like doctors sever an umbilical cord I decided that I would never again be emotional in any relationship And I kept my word Never again did I allow myself to be vulnerable like that again not even with my wife Yet it was important to analyse what had happened My exgirlfriend’s flatmate was an attractive modern and flamboyant actress called Achint Kaur who was quite popular at the time I concluded that the only explanation for Sunita’s abrupt goodbye was Kaur’s influence She must have advised her that for the sake of her career Sunita should probably date someone successful not a struggling desperate actor who was out of work Nawazuddin Siddiqui with his mother Today Sunita tells everybody that she was once together with me in a very serious relationship Incredible isn’t it Life is beautiful just fucking beautiful Nawazuddin Siddiqui: The West was kinder to me first both in terms of love and work Those years between 2006 and 2010 were pretty incredible too The industry had begun to notice me People in the industry would come and tell me how all of Bollywood was talking about this ‘one-scene actor’ who was amazing Over the years I had had a thousand rejections in every phase of life whether it was from girls money directors I had begun to think of myself as a manhoos the ill-fated one What they call in my region ‘grahan lagna’ that is astrologically the stars have aligned themselves to ensure that this person fails at everything no matter how hard he works But during those four or five years I knew that this was the end and I would be successful after this Then a moment came when I knew that it would be over in just a few days That sweet ecstasy of knowing that relief completely surpasses the joy of success that I have today Nawazuddin Siddiqui: I being the lusty village bumpkin that I am scooped her (actor Niharika Singh) up in my arms and headed straight for the bedroom Strangely the West was kinder to me first both in terms of love and work I gained recognition there through my films which travelled to most festivals I was at a cafe once with my friend in New York City’s Soho area The stunning waitress kept staring at me ‘Boss you’re all set’ My friend chuckled I was not used to such attention especially from the female kind ‘You You are an actor’ she asked a rhetorical question ‘Yes’ I replied ‘Which film of mine did you see Gangs of Wasseypur’ She squinted trying to remember ‘No no’ she said ‘Another film’ After a few moments she responded: ‘Lunchbox’ We got talking and let’s just say what happens in New York stays in New York at least in my case As you can probably guess from the titles of the films this is a memory that happened way down the line when I had tasted the sweet nectar of success Before that came Suzanne: a lovely dear Jewish girl from New Jersey who lived in New York City We met there and hit it off She came to Mumbai and began to live with me By then Shamas and I had moved to Yari Road Every few months she kept extending her visa It was a very sweet relationship She was so lovely that the idea of marriage had begun to cross my mind first in fleeting thoughts and then slowly they turned into a decision At the very last minute when I was about to propose as if reading my mind Suzanne said ‘In my country it is divorce season right now’ It was winter famous for festivals and infamous for breakups in the West Her brother had just gotten a divorce Perhaps that was why she was afraid of marriage ‘Let’s wait and watch what we want to do Let’s see if we want to live together or not after a year’ she said quietly I was bewildered Without telling her I dropped the idea of marriage altogether The shooting of Miss Lovely commenced Suzanne used to accompany me there Then came the day when her visa expired and she needed to return to New York to sort it out She was gone for many months One day while we were shooting a dance scene something happened to my co-star Niharika Singh When the director said ‘Cut’ she quietly rushed to her vanity van and stayed there Nawazuddin Siddiqui from Babumoshai Bandookbaaz Something seemed to have happened to her She was suddenly cold went out of her way to maintain a distance from me and began to keep mum I was puzzled What was wrong with her What had happened She used to be friendly social and talk quite a bit I thought it was best to ask her what had happened and so I did not once not twice but several times for several days She responded that nothing had happened I silenced my curiosity I simply urged her to talk be more social that it was not healthy to be so quiet After some days she began to I invited her over for a home-cooked meal a mutton dish which was my speciality She politely agreed and came over The dish I had made for her turned out to be absolutely terrible But she was too well mannered to say so Not only did she eat everything that was on her plate but she praised it as well ‘Now you come to my house Nawaz I will cook mutton for you’ she said warmly For the very first time I went to Niharika’s house I rang the doorbell slightly nervous When she opened the door revealing a glimpse of the house I was speechless with amazement A hundred or so it seemed little candles flickered beautifully She wore soft faux fur looking devastatingly gorgeous her beauty illuminated even more in the candlelight And I being the lusty village bumpkin that I am scooped her up in my arms and headed straight for the bedroom We made passionate love And just like that out of the blue I began a relationship with Niharika Singh a relationship which I did not know then would last for almost one and a half years During the early days I wanted to impress her I was a struggler but by then I had managed to get a car a second-hand one but a car nevertheless She lived in Malad I lived in Yari Road There was this time when she had to come to Yari Road for some work I told her that I would fetch her in my car I decked myself up in my best clothes sprinkled cologne and drove off to her place with a song in my heart Nawazuddin Siddiqui in Raman Raghav 20 She sat inside we drove off and bam In the middle of the way the cranky old car decided to break down Since then she blatantly said she would not sit in my car because it was not to be trusted she would go in her own car instead Such last-minute setbacks had become a pattern for me from all ends My love life had become a Siamese twin of my work life I worked so diligently on getting girls and films A momentum would build up and then bam lady luck would slap me on the face in both cases I would be selected for a role the costumes would be finalized and I would be flying on cloud nine that now I will become an established actor and then just like that out of nowhere would come a phone call cancelling my part or me in that role right at the very last minute I wondered why this happened to me I still do when I look back Anyway coming back to the story in the meantime emails from Suzanne started coming ‘Why are you not mailing me Nawaz What’s wrong’ I did not respond I did not have the courage to I trusted my silence would convey what needed to be conveyed When I was checking my inbox one day Niharika happened to see one of her emails ‘Who is this’ she inquired ‘You know very well who it is’ I said ‘It’s Suzanne’ ‘Wo-ow It’s still going on between you two Amazing’ Niharika thundered in anger ‘It is wrong I hope you know that’ ‘No Niharika nothing is going on between us Sometimes her emails come that’s all Slowly she will realize that Nawaz is not interested and she will stop emailing’ I explained softly ‘No Nawaz You must maintain clarity’ she said ‘All right I will email her clearly then’ I said ‘No you won’t So I will email her’ she said sternly From that day Niharika began to send emails to Suzanne from my email address She would type ‘I cannot continue with you ’and sign off as me Imagine the shock for Suzanne She would send heartbreaking replies like: ‘What happened Nawaz Please tell me Nawaz I am crying Nawaz Tell me please’ It was absolutely awful I simply could not endure it It was as if she was screaming crying out aloud helplessly in unbearable pain Nawazuddin Siddiqui in Munna Michael It was apparent that the emails had some sort of a multiple personality disorder After a few of these email exchanges Suzanne figured that this was not my voice at all ‘Who is this writing Nawaz I know this is not you Somebody else is with you’ she wrote back Imagine her plight—helplessly trying to solve a mystery from another continent and her only clues were those few emails ‘Somebody else is making you write these emails Tell me who is this person’ she wrote ‘Who is she Who is this b***h’ ‘Bitch’ That word infuriated Niharika so much that she made me end all correspondence with Suzanne forever then and there I was very sad Then I thought so be it it’s all right I am with Niharika My melancholy evaporated quickly Nawazuddin Siddiqui: I would only come to them for my own needs Otherwise I might not even take their calls Niharika was an intelligent girl Being an actor herself meant that she knew and understood my struggle for work Sure my life was better but I was still running around from office to office showing my face talking asking for roles giving auditions I spent all day hopping around like this She would call me in frequent spurts throughout the day demanding to know of my whereabouts She insisted that I tell her all the spots I would be at on that particular day I was very touched with how much she cared for me Soon enough though the romance of the concern faded The regularity of the questions felt like being nagged non-stop and I began to get rather annoyed She on the other hand did not have to run all over the place like me She was being serenaded by several offers; she had the luxury of choice I did not So I expected compassion I expected empathy There was another piece to this puzzle Like all girls Niharika obviously expected some of the sweet conversations that lovers have to take place between us But I was quite a selfish bastard I had a plain aim: go to her house make out and leave I could not talk lovey-dovey too much It finally struck her that I was a rascal who cared only for himself (Actually all the girls I have ever been with have had this same complaint about me I would only come to them for my own needs Otherwise I might not even take their calls) Nawazuddin Siddiqui in Manto When I went to her place next she was wearing a silk robe I ran my hand over its coolness around her waist grabbing her but she pushed me away ‘No Nawaz’ she said ‘I won’t meet you again This is enough’ I pleaded I cried I apologized I said I wouldn’t repeat my mistakes again I would be more thoughtful a better lover But she remained adamant She had had enough She had been hurt too many times So that was that we broke up cutting off all contact Two months later another girl came into my life in a most mysterious way I did not know then that years later I would marry her An Ordinary Life

Published: March 31 2017 12:17 am Contemporary art in India was perceived to be an elite enterprise produced and consumed by a tiny segment of the population Top News The third edition of the Kochi-Muziris Biennale (KMB) ended on Wednesday Nearly six lakh people visited the various Biennale sites across Kochi and its neighbourhood that showcased work of artists from across the world over 108 days Since its inception in 2012 the KMB has evolved into India’s foremost cultural event attracting a large audience both local and global This is exceptional in many ways Contemporary art in India was perceived to be an elite enterprise produced and consumed by a tiny segment of the population It was patronised by galleries a very small section of the corporate world and the state When the Indian economy was liberalised the art market too benefited though the boom hardly took art to the commoners The KMB has reworked this matrix In the process it may have liberated the production and appreciation of art from existing perceptual traps and patronage networks The exceptional turnouts at successive Biennales point to a people celebrating art without any preconceived notions The KMB has offered itself as a platform for the people to interact engage and learn without inhibitions Clearly a great number of people agree with this dialogic vision Is the KMB replicable elsewhere Surely the local ingredients that contributed to the making of the KMB have helped its success Fort Kochi the primary locale for the KMB works well as a space for the arts: Its rich past of being a cosmopolitan trade hub meshes with the idea of the Biennale as a global platform to showcase diverse art practices The KMB doesn’t seek to refashion Kochi’s spaces but merges with the unique setting the city offers with its waterfront and abandoned warehouses Though the first push to launch the Biennale came from CPM leader MA Baby successive governments have backed the initiative even building synergies with the state’s tourism and hospitality sectors More importantly the local population seems to have taken ownership of the Biennale turning it into a people’s festival For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Rajesh M Kayal | Published: April 15 2017 1:28 am The defunct notes deposited in third-party bank accounts are now being withdrawn and the parallel economy of black money seems to be back (Representational Image) Top News The Narendra Modi-led government has taken several steps in the last three years to reform the Indian economy Many of its decisions were taken regardless of their potential political fallout These bold steps pertain to eradicating black money on which the government seems to have declared war It intends to put the Indian economy on the fast track But the results of the government’s endeavours have not always been up to expectations The government’s first important decision as per the BJP’s poll promise was related to bringing back to the country black money parked as overseas assets by resident Indians The Black Money (Undisclosed Foreign Income and Assets) and Imposition of Tax Act 2015 aimed to bring back a few lakh crore of unaccounted money parked as overseas assets But only 644 declarations were received and just Rs 2428 crore was collected in taxes Ninety per cent of the collections came from just five per cent of those who declared their assets This meant that the act could accomplish only 5 to 10 per cent of what was expected of it In 2016 the Income Declaration Scheme was launched It gave an opportunity to people with unaccounted income or assets to come clean by paying 45 per cent tax on such wealth This scheme pertained to unaccounted assets in the country It was expected that a few lakh crore of unaccounted wealth would be declared but the government could get declarations amounting to only Rs 55000 crore November 8 2016 when the prime minister took the bold decision of demonetising currency notes of Rs 500 and 1000 will be regarded as a momentous day in Indian history This step was also taken without considering its potential political fallout; large economic gains were expected The government’s idea was that counterfeit notes of Rs 500 and 1000 as well as black money will remain undeposited and thus would go out of circulation It was expected that around three lakh crore of unaccounted notes would not be deposited in banks But these hopes weren’t fulfilled and the RBI has not yet declared the final figure of the deposits it has received It is busy segregating the counterfeit notes and trying to trace the banks which accepted these The expectation that the parallel economy of black money will be wiped out has been belied The defunct notes deposited in third-party bank accounts are now being withdrawn and the parallel economy of black money seems to be back Seen from the perspective of the digitisation of payment systems demonetisation was not justified After it announced demonetisation the government launched the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Yojana (PMGKY) 2016 The scheme was launched to enable people who had deposited unaccounted cash in their own bank accounts or the accounts of third parties to make a declaration Again only about Rs 12000 crore of declarations were received — a very small amount compared to what was expected Emails were sent to around 18 million people asking for explanations of the source of deposits of defunct notes in their bank accounts But this step was not of much help The Benami Transactions (Prohibition) Amendment Act 2016 was passed with a view to curb deposits of black money in third party accounts Under the Act benami transaction means “where a property is transferred to or is held by a person and the consideration for such property have provided or paid by another person and the property is held by for the immediate or future benefit of the person who has provided the consideration” In small towns and villages there is a big difference between market value and stamp duty value of properties particularly land In most cases stamp duty valuation is 25 per cent of market value Suppose a person has unaccounted cash amounting to Rs 75 lakh and accounted cash of Rs 25 lakh He need not invest in a third party account but can directly buy land in his name and use 75 per cent of his unaccounted money These decisions were taken with honest intentions But there was a problem in their implementation which meant that the results were not upto expectations A system that has been operating with loopholes for 65 years cannot be changed overnight People exploited the loopholes in the system to foil moves to demonetise the economy People allegedly took the help of bankers and also used others’ bank accounts to deposit their unaccounted money Banks did not make proper arrangements to detect counterfeit currency Bold steps are not enough in themselves; they must be preceded by proper planning One hopes that other important decisions like the GST will not be implemented in haste The loopholes in the system have to be plugged before any major reform is undertaken The steps taken by the government in the last three years will surely yield positive results The stringent provisions of the foreign assets declaration scheme will discourage people from parking unaccounted money in overseas assets and investments Also stringent provisions under other laws and the Income Tax Act will discourage people from generating more unaccounted money The writer
