Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s reaction to daughter Shora wanting a tiny bag worth lakhs is unmissable!


The renowned Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui, celebrated for his dynamic range and compelling performances in critically acclaimed films, recently shared a candid moment reflecting the father-daughter dynamics in his personal life. We know him for playing deeply complex characters in movies such as ‘Gangs of Wasseypur,’ ‘The Lunchbox,’ ‘Raman Raghav 2.0,’ and ‘Manto.’ Yet, this talented artist also plays an equally important role off-screen – that of a devoted father.

Nawazuddin, who entered the film industry with a minor role in the 1999 film ‘Sarfarosh’ alongside Aamir Khan, has traversed a long and successful journey to become one of Bollywood’s most respected actors. Aside from his illustrious career, the actor is a dedicated family man, having married Aaliya Siddiqui in 2009. The couple, who parted ways after 19 years of marriage, share two children, Shora and Yani, and continue to co-parent them.

It was during an intimate interview that Nawazuddin unveiled a tender moment he shared with his daughter, Shora. As the actor recounted, he treasures the times he spends with her, to an extent where he revealed that he last found solace by resting his head in her lap. His narrative is not merely about parental affection, but also a humorous and quite astounding revelation about a particular shopping adventure that unfolded in Dubai.

His beloved daughter expressed a wish for a ‘tiny bag’, a request that any doting father would strive to fulfill. Obliging, Nawazuddin accompanied her to the mall, affirming his desire to provide her with her heart’s desires. He recalled, “I want everything for her. A few days back, she took me to a mall in Dubai, ‘Papa ek chota sa bag chahiye mujhe.’ I said, ‘Fine, buy it.’”

However, the shopping trip took an unexpected turn when Shora guided her father into the luxurious realm of a Louis Vuitton showroom. With her eyes set on a diminutive bag, once she revealed the price, a wave of astonishment washed over Nawazuddin. Having anticipated the chic accessory would perhaps cost somewhere between Rs. 20-25K, he was floored to discover the price soared to a staggering Rs. 2.5 lakhs.

His reaction was one of genuine surprise and disbelief, a sentiment any parent might experience when faced with the exorbitant prices that often accompany branded luxury items. “I thought it must be some small bag. But, she pulled me to Louis Vuitton’s showroom and picked up a small bag. Par jab usne mujhe rate bataye toh mere hosh udd gaye. It was very expensive. It costed Rs 2 lakh. I thought it must be somewhere around Rs 20-25k, itna sa toh bag hai vo. But when I was told its price, I was like, ‘Hain?’.”

In an industry where celebrities are accustomed to the finer things in life, Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s startled reaction reflects a down-to-earth sensibility despite his star status. It also hints at the universal trials of parenthood—navigating children’s desires for expensive tastes, weighing them against the principles of value and pragmatism.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s tale resonates with audiences far and wide, not only because of his on-screen prowess but also due to the relatable moments he encounters as a parent. Whether it’s through the lens of a camera or within the walls of a LV showroom, Siddiqui continues to engage and captivate us with stories that bridge the space between art and life, fame and family, performance, and parenthood.
