2 films of Naseeruddin Shah releasing on March 20
Veteran thespian Naseeruddin Shah has two films, Firaaq and Barah Aana releasing on the same day, March 20.
Incidentally, both films are directed by first-timers Nandita Das and Raja Menon, respectively. In fact, Naseer’s last two successful films A Wednesday and Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na were also by first-time directors, Neeraj Pandey and Abbas Tyrewala respectively.
In the early part of his career, Naseeruddin Shah also acted in films of Shyam Benegal and Govind Nihalani when these directors were quite new to the profession.
There are indications that both Firaaq and Barah Aana may do well at the box-office.
