How did Anees Bazmee convince Naseeruddin Shah for Welcome Back?

Welcome Back
Yogen Shah

The seasoned actor is known for demanding bound scripts from directors but not from the Welcome director. Read on to know why…

Naseeruddin Shah is pretty hard to please, but somehow Anees Bazmee ended up pleasing him over on his own terms. We all know that Nasseruddin always demands a fully bound script of the film with proper character sketches. And we also know that Anees is someone who doesn’t believe in the same and believes more on visualisation. So it was causing a tiff between the two for the casting of Welcome Back. So what did finally happen? We wonder…

Our khabroo informs us that Naseeruddin was mighty impressed with Anees’s story telling abilities and once after three-four sittings, he was so well versed with the character that he didn’t ask Anees for a bound script. Naseeruddin surely was impressed by his visualisation and gave the green signal to play the role previously portrayed by the late Feroz Khan.

Now that is called a director with not just a vision but also a viaualisation power. We can’t wait to see how Naseeruddin’s character has come out in the sequel. What about you peeps?
