Veteran actor, Naseeruddin Shah has won hearts of the viewers by his acting skills. However, the actor is not very happy with his debut film as a director. He also confessed about low-confidence level henceforth that resulted in no other movie as a director. The name of the film was Yun Hota Toh Kya Hota and was released in 2006. The movie was star studded by Konkona Sen Sharma, Ayesha Takia, Jimmy Shergill, Paresh Rawal, Boman Irani, Saroj Khan and Irrfan Khan.
Naseeruddin Shah would want to first make a short film:
In an interview with Mid-Day, he said, “My confidence as a filmmaker was badly shaken by the film I made. I am not able to summon the confidence to direct again. It’s not a movie I am proud of; it didn’t turn out well because of my shortcoming as a director.” In addition, he confessed taking baby steps would be a better option. He would first want to make a short film.
Shah earlier told PTI about the kind of work he is looking for. He said, “At this stage of my life, I’m not looking for great parts to play. I have had more than my share. I’m looking to work in projects where I enjoy myself and which will give me something to chew on. I wouldn’t do a role of a boring traditional father in a movie, even if it is made by somebody I like.”
The actor enjoyed doing supporting but critical roles where “directors hesitate to cast well known actors as they feel audiences’ expectations would be blighted. I realised my own role is not as important as the totality of the film and I should contribute to the totality of the film in whatever capacity I can.”
