In an interview, Nawazuddin stated, "It's not that I don't want to (work with Salman or Shah Rukh)." If I get a huge role in a big picture, I'll do the same thing I've done before. The distinction between lead and supporting roles is important in this business. It makes no difference if you are in Europe or Hollywood.
