Naseeruddin Shah in Marathi film with Nana Patekar

He never fails to surprise us. Ace actor Naseeruddin Shah will now be seen in a Marathi film, titled Deool. The film will be directed by Umesh Kulkarni who has helmed gems like Valu and Vihir in the past. Valu was picked up by Subhash Ghai’s Mukta Arts, while Vihir was co-produced by Amitabh Bachchan’s AB Corp. In fact, Bachchan has also expressed his desire to act in and produce more Marathi film after that. He has previously made a special appearance in a Marathi film with actor-wife Jaya Bachchan. Looks like Umesh, who started out as a short filmmaker and moved on to feature films, chose to approach Naseer over the Big B! Incidentally, Deool stars Nana Patekar in a major role.
