In a recent interview, Ratna Pathak Shah discussed starting their own acting school and being cast in a film with Naseeruddin Shah.
Ratna Pathak Shah is one of the finest actresses in Bollywood and continues to enjoy a devoted following today. Be it her acting or her choice of films, everything was loved by fans. She has made her mark in the industry and is capable of doing so many things that no one else can. Naseeruddin Shah is a talented actor as well, which makes the couple a powerhouse of talent. In a recent chat, the actress talked about several things, including starting an acting school with Naseeruddin and being cast in a film with him.
When asked if she and Naseeruddin Shah had any intention of starting an acting school? Ratna Pathak Shah replied, “No, because it would be hard to accomplish that without cheating the students. It requires a great deal of effort, energy, and a full-time commitment to that job. You can’t do this part time and have a little gig on the side. Naseer trains actors at the NSD and the Film and television institute but not me. I wouldn’t know how to go about training actors. But I do think it is important for Naseer to put down his ideas about training actors in some form, either a book or something which can be accessible to others because his understanding of the business is really quite subtle and very very useful. I am not so good at communicating that yet but I do want to think about it and I want to work towards it. And that’s something we can do for future young actors”.
Ratna Pathak Shah quipped, “Oh! we would love to do a film with Naseeruddin Shah, but no one is casting us.”. And we did get a couple of offers but unfortunately, they didn’t work out. One of the scripts was really really nice but it didn’t work out. It’s getting hard to find finance for different kinds of films. It’s getting difficult to find ways to show these slightly unusual films also. But we are always hoping that we will get a chance to act together.”
Ratna Pathak Shah will next be seen in Dhak Dhak alongside Fatima Sana Shaikh, Sanjana Sanghi, and Dia Mirza.
