On his 41st birthday on Tuesday, actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui received what is perhaps his best birthday gift ever. His wife gave birth to a son — their second child together — calling for double celebration.
The actor, who is married to Anjali, was shooting in Kashmir for his much-anticipated movie "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" when he was informed about the good news. The delivery happened at his wife’s hometown Jabalpur, said a source close to the critically acclaimed actor.
An ecstatic Nawazuddin, already on his way to meet the couple’s new bundle of joy, said in a statement: "I am happy to become father for the second time. We haven’t thought of a name yet. I’m just too happy. It’s going to be a double celebration in the family from here on."
He confirmed that the mother and the new-born are fine.
Nawazuddin, who forayed into Bollywood with Aamir Khan-starrer “Sarfarosh”, has a six-year-old daughter Shora.
On his professional front, Nawazuddin has already cemented a permanent position in the showbiz by delivering power packed performance in movie irrespective of the length of the role.
He is credited for several critically acclaimed movies like “Manorama Six Feet Under”, “The Lunchbox”, “Gangs of Wasseypur”, “Liar’s Dice” and “Miss Lovely”.
The actor, who defied the stereotypal bracket for Bollywood star’s looks, has his eyes set on ruling the commercial cinema after delivering hits like “Kick” and “Badlapur”.
A lot of anticipation is running on his work this year as well with movies like “Raees” and “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” in his kitty. His offbeat film "Haramkhor" is already creating waves on the international festivals.
