Speaking about his journey of becoming an actor , he said that after graduating from a local college, he worked as a chemist in a petrochemical company for a short while. However, to fulfil the dream of becoming an actor, he got associated with theatre. Eventually, he got admitted to the National School of Drama (NSD), Delhi.

When asked about his struggles and challenges that he faced in early days of his career, Nawazuddin told that he was offered small roles which he had to accept as he had no other alternative and he had to survive. “It is the difficult time that makes you strong,” he said.

Responding to a question on how Gangs of Wasseypur turned out to be a turning point in his acting career, he said that the movie made him believe in himself. “I was confident that my struggles will get over after this and people will appreciate this movie”, he said.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui also shared his experience of working in web-series on Netflix and other OTT platforms.
