I prefer to work with passionate directors rather than experienced ones: Naseeruddin Shah
Karachi: Indian film actor and director ‘Naseeruddin Shah’ has disclosed that he favours to work with inexperienced, but passionate directors than the ones who have lost the spark for filmmaking, ARY News has learnt.
Speaking to media at National Academy of Performing Arts (NAPA) Theatre Festival 2014, Naseeruddin Shah said that most of the films about which he feels great are by first-time directors and he has often regretted working with cinema masters, but never debutante directors.
