Nawazuddin Siddiqui Reflects on His Experiences with Bhang and Smoking

Actor Shares Insights on the Impact of Bhang and Smoking on His Life

Nawazuddin Siddiqui recently opened up about how consuming bhang would make him feel like the world’s greatest actor, leading him to perform endlessly. The acclaimed actor revealed in an interview with Ranveer Allahbadia that he has experimented with smoking and bhang in the past, though he later recognized the drawbacks and decided to quit.

During the interview, Nawazuddin confessed that he began smoking due to the influence of certain companions. “I had company of some people who would smoke up, so even I ended up doing that. I realized later that… I don’t want to promote it. I have made mistakes, but the benefit was that the high you’d get in that was a lot of fun. But I do not want to promote it at all. It was our mistake, and I want to apologize for that,” he said.

He went on to describe his experiences with bhang, especially during Holi, when he felt like the “biggest actor in the world.” Nawazuddin shared, “I would think people are my audience, and the world my stage. So, I would perform! I would sometimes be Ashwatthama, Karn, Krishna, and perform for hours.”

These performances were not confined to a particular space. “I would perform all day and night because you get caught up in the moment. People would ask me, ‘Paagal ho gaya kya hai tu?’ once its effects subsided. ‘You’ve spent the entire day talking in the same way!’ I would act wherever—in parks, on buses, anywhere,” Nawazuddin recounted.

The actor’s reflections provide a candid look at the impact of these substances on his life and his eventual decision to move away from them.
