Mumbai: Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who is often seen in intense and negative roles, says since he hasn't yet got a chance to do the Bollywood dance routine, he'd be ready to take on a dancer's role in a movie, if it is offered to him.

Asked if he's getting typecast in Hindi filmdom, he said: "Actually I have never danced around the trees like other actors. If I do that, then nobody will ask me this question. If I get a dancer's role, I will do that. I will learn dancing and I will do it."

The National Award-winning actor, known for his work in movies like ‘Kahaani’, ‘Gangs of Wasseypur - Part 2’ and ‘Talaash’, said: “A few years back, I was asked, 'Why are you playing only supporting roles?' I am playing a character and exploring different roles... the kind of range (of characters) I'm getting, what more can I ask for?”

The actor is currently enjoying the success of his latest film ‘Badlapur’. Directed by Sriram Raghavan, ‘Badlapur’ also features Varun Dhawan, Yami Gautam and Huma Qureshi.
