Being labelled unconventional not my doing: Naseeruddin Shah
Actor Naseruddin Shah says that being tagged an unconventional actor wasn’t his idea, and it happened as he was mostly chosen for “different” kind of movies.
The actor has frequently taken up commercial films such as Krrish, The Dirty Picture and even Welcome Back, but he is largely considered a product of the non-commercial cinema.
About the unconventional tag, he said: “I don’t think I have any choice about that. I suppose it was because of the fact that my career began in the different kind of cinema. It wasn’t my doing, I was chosen for those movies. I might have preferred to become a popular kind of actor working in the song-and-dance kind of movies, that’s not how it happened. “So my being labelled as unconventional is not my doing.” Naseeruddin said he’s particularly fond of Benegal’s Nishant.
