Nawazuddin Siddiqui: ‘I have learned a lot from Irrfan Khan’.

It’s been eight years since Ritesh Batra’s The Lunchbox hit screens. The film, starring Irrfan Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Nimrat Kaur, resonated with audiences across the globe, especially with the ones who hail from Mumbai.

Recently, Nawazuddin opened up about working with late actor Irrfan and shooting in Mumbai’s iconic local trains for The Lunchbox.

“For me, one of the best experiences was to shoot for the film in a packed train. An entire compartment was booked for our shoot. Irrfan bhai and I had got into our get-up for the movie and sat between the locals. No one really realised but everyone just perfectly synced into our scene. That is the beauty of a local train. Even those who were not in our unit became a part of The Lunchbox,” Nawazuddin said in an interview with The Times of India.
