Like Amitabh Bachchan who had the singular achievement of working with both father Manmohan Desai and son Ketan Desai, Naseeruddin Shah has worked with Vishal Bhardwaj in Maqbool and 7 Khoon Maaf, and now with Vishal’s son Aasmaan in his debut film Kuttey.
When asked to shed some light on his role Naseer says, “My role in Kuttey is a surprise.”
Asked to compare father and son Bhardwaj, Naseer observes, “I think Aasmaan has gone a little further than his Dad in their chosen genre. Father and son Bhardwaj are both night birds! They prefer night shoots which I hate .But I am personally very fond of them, and they are both very well prepared and make their actors comfortable.”
Naseer looks back at the past year with some joy. “The past year has been good. I did the series Taj. Then I did Vishal’s short film and a couple of others. Just finished my work in Baba Azmi ‘s film Salman and daughter .We shot it in Lucknow.”
