Jaya Bachchan and Naseeruddin Shah share screen space for the first time!

Rituporno Ghosh’s satire Taak Jhhank brings together the two veterans of Bollywood-Jaya Bachchan and Naseeruddin Shah for the very first time

The two seasoned actors have always taken the unconventional path when it comes to choosing their films. While Naseeruddin is known as the emperor of parallel cinema, Jaya has earned her respect by delivering some equally power packed performances. As Rituporno Ghosh’s Taak Jhhank is slated to release in April 2012, the makers have huge expectations from the flick. It’s surprising that despite Naseer and Jaya’s similar cinematic sensibilities nobody thought of casting them together before. Jaya Bachchan started her career with the Bengali film, Mahanagar in 1963. Trudging a long way, she was last seen playing Abhishek Bachchan’s onscreen mother in Drona in 2008. Mrs Bachchan is now all set to mesmerize the audience again. We hope, Naseer on the other hand who claims to be bored with the whole process of acting in films has found the much needed motivation to cast his spell on the silver screen again. All we can say is we are definitely looking forward to see the duo together! What about you?
