“It was not flattering being called the Amitabh Bachchan of art cinema”: Naseeruddin Shah
He is considered to be one of the finest actors of Indian cinema. He has ruled the art cinema, proved his mettle at the commercial Box Office & continues to surprise us with something new every now & then with films like “A Wednesday!” & “The Dirty Picture”. He is Naseeruddin Shah.
However, there is one embarrassing experience he confessed about in a recent interview. Naseeruddin Shah said, “It was not flattering being called the Amitabh Bachchan of art cinema. I’m incapable of doing stuffs he can. His name draws money but not mine. I tried & failed, so it was a bad label given to me.”
Never mind the comparisons; we know for sure, though not Amitabh, he truly is a genius in himself.
