Naseeruddin Shah talks about his movies and selections&
He counts among the many biggest ever on the Indian display, no doubt. To say Naseeruddin Shah is an icon as a cine artiste can be an understatement. From the artwork of appearing he exuded in Paar, Sparsh, Pestonjee, Junoon, Mirch Masala or Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro, to the unforgettable display presence of mainstream roles in Masoom, A Wednesday, Jalwa, The Dirty Picture or the Ishqiya movies, the 70-year-old Bollywood veteran has been there, accomplished that.
The much-feted actor has been equally at dwelling on screens massive and small (some really feel his function within the TV serial Mirza Ghalib is his greatest ever), and has not too long ago forayed the OTT area with the collection Bandish Bandits, too.
In a profession spanning over 4 many years, there have been situations when he did not create magic on display, however he tells you he has no regrets.
“I don’t have a single regret in life. Yes, I have made mistakes but I have overcome them. I have put them behind me and moved on in life with learnings. I would be a fool to keep regrets in life. I have acted in several ghastly movies. I ate some of them. I might have not enjoyed working for those films but I don’t regret having done them. Each and every decision of mine has taught me something or the other,” Shah instructed IANS.
“It has been a great and fulfilling journey. It has been better than I thought it would be. I feel ‘tript’ (contented). I feel blessed to be able to fulfill my dreams. I think I have to find newer dreams now. I am still finding and exploring new things. You can’t expect any favours from life. It’s up to you to find the challenges,” he added.
The actor recalled his preliminary days when he was uncertain of with the ability to match within the movie trade.
“I was not at all sure where I would fit in the film industry. Then I realised I did not need to fit in the film industry except to dabble in it now and then and make some money. An alternate world opened up for me,” he added.
The actor par excellence is now focussed on serving to younger actors perceive the artwork of appearing.
“There is whole world of learning in my own chosen profession. The desire to keep honing my craft is what kept me going and make my work alive on stage. I ended up reading a lot of literature and then I discovered teaching, which I found stimulating. Helping young actors, working with them and taking them on in order to fulfil their potential — I found that as a great joy. I hope I am able to continue that as long as I live,” Shah expressed.
