Naseeruddin Shah gets roles rejected by Big B
Undoubtedly, Naseeruddin Shah is one of the best thespians of Indian cinema. He won accolades and critical acclaim for each and every role played so far. His recent success was A Wednwsday.
But then, as fate would have it, he is being offered roles specially written for Amitabh Bachchan and rejected by him. A case in point is the film Maharathi. The role Naseer played was originally offered to Big B by Paresh Rawal. After he said no, Naseer was roped in.
Naseer is now being offered Jagmohan Mundra’s Shoot On Sight, a film first offered to Amitabh. On one hand Naseer could be happy that he is considered as the only alternative to Big B. But, on the other hand, he feels that no one is writing scripts keeping him in view. That is the way Bollywood works.
