Mohammad Nazim has been playing Jaggi in hit show Saathiya for quite sometime now. But few are aware that Nazim has a hidden talent as 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 been always 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 Saath Nibhana Saathiya was a serious role, but post Aham’s death in the show, Nazim is now playing the character of 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 this 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 comedic 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’re sure Nazim that you will get a chance of doing that very soon and we can’t wait to see you in action!
