Naseeruddin Shah was not seen on the screen for a while, until â€˜A Wednesdayâ€™ happened. Actually the actor is very choosy and only picks up the best of roles. In Neeraj Pandey’s â€˜A Wednesdayâ€™ he was at his best and he was one of the reasons why the film did so well.
The one scene that he shared with Anupam Kher was much appreciated.
Two of his movies- Nandita Das’s â€˜Firaaqâ€™ where heâ€™s part of an ensemble cast and Raja Menon’s â€˜Barah Aanaâ€™ which has him in the lead alongside Vijay Raaz were released last Friday and were much looked forward to. The role of Shukla, the bullied driver of â€˜Barah Aanaâ€™ and Khansaab of â€˜Firaaqâ€™, are totally different characters and thankfully Naseer has been able to blatantly show the difference.
Now he has another different film coming up- Vishal Bharadwaj’s â€˜Ishqiyaâ€™, which sees him playing the romantic lead opposite the much younger Vidya Balan. Now thatâ€™s going to be overtly interesting.
This talented actor sure has a lot to offer, for many more years to come.
