Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui has spoken against a comedy account on Twitter, which uses his photograph as its display picture. ��The account, named ‘Gareeb Aadmi’, was created in January this year and already has over 16, 000 followers.

Speaking to Mumbai Mirror, a clearly irritated Siddiqui said,��”Haan main gareeb aadmi hoon (yes I am a poor man), it’s true. ��They are not calling me a murderer so why should I be ashamed? ��The person, whose brainwave this handle was, should be ashamed of passing racist remarks in the guise of jokes… You can call me all kinds of names but you can’t question my talent. I’ve used my acting skills and come up in life.”

The actor, who will be seen in this weekend’s release, ‘Badlapur’, has previously bagged a Filmfare Award trophy for his performance in ‘The Lunchbox’ (2013). ��Currently, he is working on Salman Khan starrer, ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, after already having worked with Khan in the very successful ‘Kick’ (2014).
