Why is Naseeruddin Shah excited to work with Madhuri Dixit in ‘Dedh Ishqiya’?
We will soon see the two actors share screen space in Vishal Bharadwaj’s upcoming movie. And here’s what the A Wednesday actor has to say about it…
Naseeruddin Shah is happy to be given yet another chance to share screen space with B-town diva Madhuri Dixit. And this time around it’s in Vishal Bharadwaj’s Dedh Ishqiya. Talking about it Shah says, “We play two con-persons trying to constantly out-con each other.”
Remembering the times when they had shared screen space in the past Naseer talks about their movies – Rajkumar, Gaja Gamini and Tridev – none of which did really well. But this time, the veteran actor is hopeful that the partnership will churn out something much better.
And do you know why? ‘Coz of the script! “It’s a really funny script. What Vishal Bhardwaj and (director) Abhishek Choubey have come up with is quite gorgeous. And I’m really looking forward to doing this film,” Shah says. Ah! After all, who wouldn’t like to get conned by someone as beautiful as our dhak-dhak girl, no? Especially after Vidya Balan set the seductive standards in the prequel, Ishqiya. Right, readers?
