Naseeruddin Shah is regularly in the news and surprisingly it’s not because of his acting skills. He has been very vocal about everything and he even went on to call Rajesh Khanna a poor actor.
Now, the veteran has openly expressed his distaste with the way the film industry works these days. He says, “I feel blessed that I came at a time when people like me were needed in films and I started getting work. In fact, my struggle was not as long or hard as that of an actor like Nawazuddin (Siddiqui) or Irrfan (Khan). Now they are getting success but it took a lot of time. They both struggled a lot.”
The star also feels that commercial filmmakers ruin biopics and firmly believes that biopics on music legends like RD Burman and Kishore Kumar shouldn’t be made.
“It is enough if they make song and dance films only. Commercial filmmakers should not touch serious subjects. Satyanash hi kar ke rakhte hai uska (they ruin them completely),” he added.
Some strong words by a very powerful actor!
