Popular actor Mohammad Nazim has been playing Jaggi in the hit show Saathiya for quite sometime now. But few are aware that Nazim has a hidden talent, and is in fact a hilarious and spot on mimicry artist.
Be it singers like Jagjit Singh, Udit Narayan, Sonu Nigam or even actors like Jeevan, Dharmendra, Sunny Deol, Nazim copies them equally well.
When asked about it Nazim says, “I have always been a film buff and this came naturally to me at a very early stage of my life. School days were fun because my friends would actually encourage me in every little thing I did. That was the time when I started doing mimicry. I have actually performed for my friends too.”
Interestingly, Nazim’s first major lead role as Aham in Sath Nibhana Saathiya was a serious role, but post Aham’s death in the show, Nazim is now playing the character of the fun loving Jaggi, where he can emote a lot and also imitate a lot of actors.
Talking about it, Nazim says,”Mimicry is indeed a special talent and it is not only about dressing up and behaving like someone. The voice has to be accurate along with the attitude. I am happy that as Jaggi I can show my hidden talent. Recently in Singapore I did something like that.”
Talking about his favourite comic idols, Nazim says, “There are many, but I personally like Kapil Sharma as Rajesh Arora in his show and even Sunil Grover as Dr Gulati, as both of them have actually created unique benchmarks. I personally love comedy acts and I am waiting for that opportunity when I can incorporate my mimicry act in my acting as well.”
We hope you get many opportunities to showcase this talent of yours in the near future!!
