Nawazuddin Siddiqui feeling 'overwhelmed' with 'Manjhi...' response Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who has been lauded for the response he has received for the film “Manjhi – The Mountain Man”, says he is feeling “overwhelmed” by the acknowledgement he has got.

“I am overwhelmed and this gives me confidence in doing good work going forward,” Nawaz said in a statement.

The “Gangs of Wasseypur” actor was praised by Salman Khan on micro-blogging website Twitter earlier this week, where he mentioned that he hoped the movie becomes a “big hit”.
