Black Mirror Director James Watkins Worked With Nawaz In A Show And Can’t Get Over Him Now

Nawazuddin Siddiqui is one of the finest talents we have in Bollywood. His struggle to be a part of the entertainment industry is quite an inspiration but the Munna Michael actor has proved his mantle every time. He is known for playing unconventional roles.


He is known for his impeccable acting skills and this time we will see him in an international web series. He is going to make his digital debut in BBC’s web series, McMafia.  It will be available for the fans on Amazon Prime. McMafia is directed by James Watkins who is best known for movie- The Woman in Black featuring Daniel Radcliffe. He is also the director of the most popular Netflix web series, Black Mirror.


Nawazuddin will portray the role of Dilly Mahmood, an Indian business partner in the series. McMafia is inspired by the non-fiction book, McMafia: A Journey Through the Global Criminal Underworld. Just recently the Gangs of Wasseypur actor had tweeted that it was an “overwhelming experience” for him to work with director James Watkins for the drama series McMafia.

But this time, the director is in awe of Nawazuddin. In an interview with Mid- Day, the director said, “I have wanted to work with Nawazuddin Siddiqui since I first saw his transformative talents shine in films like Gangs Of Wasseypur (2012) and Miss Lovely (2012). He is not only a mesmerising star with a sizzling on-screen presence but also among the greatest actors in the world. And, I don’t say that casually.” 


Watkins pointed the actor’s ability to “become” the character. “He seems to breathe the role rather than act it. Such roles cease to part; they become people. They come alive. He is the master of micro detail, with a peerless ability to convey through his eyes. His commitment to exploring the truth of his characters, however draining or tiring it may be, is unwavering.”
