‘I love working with young actors,’ says Naseeruddin Shah

Naseeruddin Shah he never ceases to amaze me with his impeccable acting. With many incredible films to his credit, the actor’s love for his craft is undying. Recently, while speaking to Bombay Times, Naseer Sahab spoke about how she loves working with young actors and guiding them.

In an interview he said:

I feel the need to do it and I really enjoy it. The work I do with actors is to spark their imagination and point out to them how it should be used in their work and of course the many disciplines that go along with acting work that too many actors overlook. Generally, it is considered that you either have the talent or you do not have it, some people can act and others cannot, which is a complete fallacy. Anyone can act as long as they push themselves in the right direction and are willing to expose themselves emotionally, which is something actors shouldn’t be afraid of. And a lot of people are afraid of that, and that’s why they don’t become actors.

Appreciating the struggles of the young actors, he further added …

I think everyone likes acting, and whatever profession we are in, we all have to do a little bit of it from time to time. I love working with young actors and helping them reach their potential. That is the greatest joy and it gives me more joy than doing it myself. Watching them struggle with something and helping them conquer it is a fantastic feeling. I don’t want them to become clones of me, certainly not. I would like them to find their own identity and the work I do with them should help them to achieve this.

The actor also went on and explained that he is quite impressed by the shorts made by young people and considers them absolutely wonderful. I hope you keep up the good work. Naseeruddin Shah was last seen in Ramprasad Ki TehrviAND Aiyaary and the next one will be seen on Kuttey.
