Naseeruddin Shah: I don’t regret having done ghastly movies

He counts among the many best ever on the Indian display screen, no doubt. To say Naseeruddin Shah is an icon as a cine artiste can be an understatement. From the artwork of performing he exuded in Paar, Sparsh, Pestonjee, Junoon, Mirch Masala or Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro, to the unforgettable display screen presence of mainstream roles in Masoom, A Wednesday, Jalwa, The Dirty Picture or the Ishqiya movies, the 70-year-old Bollywood veteran has been there, done that.

The much-feted actor has been equally at dwelling on screens massive and small (some really feel his function within the TV serial Mirza Ghalib is his greatest ever), and has lately forayed the OTT area with the sequence Bandish Bandits, too.

In a profession spanning over 4 a long time, there have been cases when he did not create magic on display screen, however he tells you he has no regrets.

“I don’t have a single regret in life. Yes, I have made mistakes but I have overcome them. I have put them behind me and moved on in life with learnings. I would be a fool to keep regrets in life. I have acted in several ghastly movies. I ate some of them. I might have not enjoyed working for those films but I don’t regret having done them. Each and every decision of mine has taught me something or the other,” Shah informed IANS.

“It has been a great and fulfilling journey. It has been better than I thought it would be. I feel ‘tript’ (contented). I feel blessed to be able to fulfill my dreams. I think I have to find newer dreams now. I am still finding and exploring new things. You can’t expect any favours from life. It’s up to you to find the challenges,” he added.

The actor recalled his preliminary days when he was uncertain of having the ability to match within the movie trade.

“I was not at all sure where I would fit in the film industry. Then I realised I did not need to fit in the film industry except to dabble in it now and then and make some money. An alternate world opened up for me,” he added.

The actor par excellence is now focussed on serving to younger actors perceive the artwork of performing.

“There is whole world of learning in my own chosen profession. The desire to keep honing my craft is what kept me going and make my work alive on stage. I ended up reading a lot of literature and then I discovered teaching, which I found stimulating. Helping young actors, working with them and taking them on in order to fulfil their potential — I found that as a great joy. I hope I am able to continue that as long as I live,” Shah expressed.
