Nawazuddin Siddiqui is one of the brilliant actors that the Indian film industry has ever produced and he is best known for his dedication towards his work. While the actor is shooting for his upcoming movie, No Land’s Man, in New York, he yet again proved that nothing is above his craft. Nawazuddin Siddiqui continued to shoot for the movie despite receiving the unfortunate and heartbreaking news that he lost his sister, Saima, to cancer.

The director of the movie, Mostofa Sarwar Farooki opened up about the news and wrote a heartfelt note on his social media handle sharing Nawazuddin’s dedication towards his work. Disclosing the sad news, Mostofa mentioned that he named the onscreen sister of Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s character in the movie ‘Saima’ and during the shooting of the movie, he learnt that it was the actual name of the actor’s real sister as well.

Life of an artist! While rehearsing a scene from No Land’s Man, @nawazuddin._siddiqui became slightly emotional but, since he is extremely professional, Nawaz quickly regained his composure. Later on I came to know the reason. The scene I mentioned was between him and his sister whose reel name was Saima. He asked me if I knew his sister’s name is Saima too. I answered negative as my script was written five years ago and I had no idea about his sister. He then told me his sister Saima has been suffering from cancer for eight years and he has been trying everything he could to help her in this battle. So whenever he had scenes with Saima, he was feeling extremely emotional. I didn’t know how to respond to this strange connection. I forgot this quickly as I had other things to deal with. Two days ago, while we were shooting a scene, he received a call. We had no idea what was going on. He completed the scene brilliantly. After we packed up, I came to know he lost his sister while we were shooting that scene. I have recently developed some idea about this man’s attachment to his family. As someone who is strongly connected to the family, I could completely understand how he was feeling. I didn’t know how to deal with this situation. But he knew. While coordinating everything back home, he continued his shoot and made sure our New York shoot is completed. He will fly home today. Maybe he will be standing silently in front of her grave. Maybe they will speak thousand words in silence. Maybe fiction and reality will merge into each other. #nolandsmanfilm

“He then told me his sister Saima has been suffering from cancer for eight years and he has been trying everything he could to help her in this battle. So whenever he had scenes (phone conversations) with Saima, he was feeling extremely emotional,” the director said before mentioning the heartbreaking news.

He went on to say, “Two days ago, while we were shooting a scene, he received a call. We had no idea what was going on. He completed the scene brilliantly. After we packed up, I came to know he lost his sister while we were shooting that scene. While coordinating everything back home, he continued his shoot and made sure our New York shoot is completed.”

A while ago, Nawazuddin Siddiqui also shared a picture of him with her sister on her 25th birthday disclosing her battle with cancer.
