Here’s Why Naseeruddin Shah Has Given Up Direction
Naseeruddin Shah is one of the most talented actors that Bollywood has. After impressing everyone with his acting skills, the veteran actor turned director with Yun Hota Toh Kya Hota which released in 2006. However, after directing one movie, the actor has said that he has given up direction.
When asked why he has decided to give up direction, the 67-year-old said, “I don’t think I am good at it. It’s too difficult and hectic. It’s a big job to direct a film. Also, once you have made it, it’s there forever so its not an easy job.”
Naseeruddin says that he finds Rajkummar Rao and Ayushmann Khurrana most talented among the fresh batch of actors. “I am amazed by the choice of films Rajkummar is making. He is one of the most talented actors of this generation. I am also surprised by Ayushman’s work. I am sure he must be getting some typical commercial hero projects but he is making some wise choices,” said the Dedh Ishqiya actor.
Although Naseer has not signed any web series of yet, but he believes that it is the future. “It’s the future, so a web series is the way to go. I haven’t said yes to anything yet but I think I will at some point. The digital age is going to replace everything and cinema houses are going to be reformed in 25 years. I won’t be around by then,” he said. Naseeruddin will next be seen in The Hungry, which is based on Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus.
