The 30th edition of Singapore International Film Festival (SGIFF) will commence on November 21 and conclude on December 8. 

Sometime back, the actor was honoured by the Golden Dragon Award at the Cardiff International Film Festival for his excellence in cinema in the International market. Sharing the news among his followers, Nawazuddin took to Instagram and shared: “Thank You Mr. Mick Antoniw the Counsel General of Wales UK and Cardiff International Film Festival for bestowing me with the prestigious Golden Dragon Award.”

Even legendary actor Judi Dench received the Lifetime Achievement award at the event. “Congratulations Judi Dench on receiving the Lifetime Achievement award,” he added.

On the work front, Nawazuddin is awaiting his next release ‘Motichoor Chaknachoor’, a wedding comedy which is slated to hit silver screens on November 15. Meanwhile, he also wrapped up the shooting of his upcoming film ‘Bole Chudiyan’, which is helmed by his brother Shamas Nawab Siddiqui.
