1. Faizal Khan in Gangs Of Wasseypur 1&2: The role which gave him a big break as an actor, Nawaz pulled it so well that you will begin to hate him. The only thing you will love about him in this movie is the dialogue “Sabka Badla Lega Tera Faizal” (Everyone will be avenged by Faizal).
2. Chand Nawab in Bajrangi Bhaijaan: The role of the famous Pakistani journalist of the same name had a comical relief in the Salman Khan blockbuster, you will love his character slowly when he assists Pawan (played by Salman Khan) in his mission to get Munni back to Pakistan. His character makes you laugh with his perfect acting.
