Not a fan of Farhan’s acting or films: Naseeruddin
Naseeruddin Shah is one of the country's finest actors and a veteran who has been around for years. Having done films, television and theatre, the actor is par excellence and when it comes to quality cinema and acting, he's not one to mince words!
Talking about new age directors, Naseeruddin Shah gets candid. "It's not soon before I can see Dibakar Banerjee conforming. The signs were clearly visible with Shanghai. Farhan Akhtar's films I clearly don't care for. I liked his first film Dil Chahta Hai. He's a tremendous person and has so many facets to him. Tomorrow I won't be surprised if I hear that he cooked a 10 course meal to perfection. He sings, acts, producers and writes, I think it's great he's doing whatever he can. I'm not a great fan of his acting or his films. But I admire him", says Naseer.
Talking about the actors whose work he likes, Naseer adds, "We have great actors like Irrfan khan, Arshad Warsi, Boman Irani and Vijay Rao. He's fantastic! Then there is Pankaj Kapur who has always been around. Even Kay Kay Menon is good but he has not got what he deserves. There's also Manoj Bajpayee".
However, his favourite co actor remains Arshad Warsi. The duo was seen together in Ishqiya and will also be seen in Dedh Ishqiya. "As a co actor, I loved working with Arshad. He's very funny and great fun. He keeps all seriousness at bay and keeps things light!" says Naseer.
