Naseeruddin Shah Ko Angry Queen Game High? Many reasons. In particular, his pets include parallel cinematic hypocrisy, mediocrity in Hindi films, Bollywood harmony towards forces, a tense class atmosphere, the rise of the Taliban, Anupam Kher and Virat Kohli. Shaw, who was hospitalized with pneumonia earlier this year, knows exactly how to cook a storm.
Now in good spirits, the 71-year-old Thespian has been amputated to reflect on the central issues of the day for his own industry and country. In a recent controversial interview he grabbed the headlines for all the wrong reasons, he pointed out – feature Nasir in fashion – The three Khans are afraid to tell out On social and political issues perhaps “they have a lot to lose” and some filmmakers claim that they are being encouraged by the governing body to make pro-government films. It came with his viral video warning to fellow Indian Muslims about the serious dangers posed by the Taliban’s return to power in Afghanistan. Earlier, in these pages, he declared irritably Dilip Kumar mourns devotees The Bollywood legend said, “There are no significant lessons left for future actors.”
Silver hair and deep voice to boot, Naseeruddin Shah There is a history of taking a provocative attitude. He called old Chum Anupam Kher a “clown” (not called) and a very young Kangana Ranaut a “half-educated starlet”, but he did not name her. He mocked Rajesh Khanna as a “limited actor”, later regretted saying so and accused Farhan Akhtar’s performance in the Bhagan Milkha episode as “fake”. Last year, at the India Today Conclave, he admitted that he adores Vijay Anand “more than I adore Gurudatta”. Even the respectable parallel film that gave Shaw a break and stood him out did not escape his blistering controversy.
“The record of these filmmakers speaks for itself,” he told Quinto. “You can go back and study the work of many filmmakers who started in the early 70s. There are very few exceptions, Mrinal Sen is one of them, Shyam Benegal is another. It is hard for me to think of a third name.” With respect to Shah, Govind Nihalani, Saeed Akhtar Mirza, Gulzar, What is the list of celebrities like Sai Paranjape, Mani Kaul and Ketan Mehta? The stage, according to his own preference) We know that he likes nothing more than to speak his mind and make someone fearlessly truthful – on occasions, spending a few friends with him or making him unpopular even after his political statements are over.Love, hate, ignore him. Can’t deny: Shaku doesn’t have the courage.
Since the BJP government grew up, intellectual discourse has been caught in the jaws of division. Cultural battles heated up with liberal voices such as Naseeruddin Shah identifying himself as the best and blaming the worst in the minority. After years of ascent, it should be seen as an insult to the left and a pyrrhic victory on the right, but the Shah did not recognize himself as being on the left.
He has strong views like the general AMU-educated Elite or FTII-NSD Wonk and he is not afraid to express it. If he had not been one of the most acclaimed actors in Hindi cinema – perhaps in India – with more than 200 titles for his filmography, it would have been easy to dismiss Shaw’s big protests as the old Crank’s murmur. What makes him sound rational in a sea of celebrity outrage is that he is not loyal to any political party or ideology. In the era Kangana Ranaut And while Swara Bhaskar has created a brand called Firebrand, Shah stands out from the crowd for his distinctive interventions.
Take the runout clash with Bollywood elite and powerful people. The Queen Star was initially hailed as an outsider who took over the exploitation and kinship industry. But soon, her bravery, which made her confident of being politically straightforward, was exposed as mere propaganda. Although her periodicals still attract media attention, perhaps people have lost faith in their ability to be completely unrealistic. Unlike some of his colleagues, Shah is a ghost with no agenda. He is not an activist. You will not see him sitting in dharnas or leading a parade. In other words, he has no political ambition. That is why his timing to make these comments cannot be questioned because he did not promote the film or be fair for a political post.
And he’s not even your friendly and professional talking head. He may seem a lone voice, perhaps supported by no one but his conscience. If celebrities like Javed Akhtar, Shabana Azmi, Jaya Bachchan, Anupam Kher, Hemamalini, Swara Bhaskar and Urmila Matondkar show solidarity with a particular social or humanitarian cause, there is always a risk that people will think it has a political ending. Not so in the case of Shaw. He stays away from politics, which makes him a non-party player. I want someone to gently call him the “old politician” of the entertainment industry, but it pushes him away, because he can completely reject it.
Man from meaningful cinema
Shaku’s political consciousness is nothing new. Political and social engagement informed him of his best works, especially his masterpieces from the parallel film movement. These films are driven by a powerful message about equality, socialism and free speech. In fact, one reason you might expect Shaw’s stature to speak out against the political issues of his age is because of his association with the socially meaningful film that he and his colleagues won in the 1970s and 80s. Immersed in sublime realism and well-intentioned enthusiasm, parallel cinema suffers from the poetic hope that one day the world may be the best place to live. Unlike Bollywood big budgets, it has big ambitions and big heart. If we take Shaw seriously today, it may be due to his highly respected work related to the golden age of Hindi cinema. These include Sparsh, Albert Pinto Ko Gussa Kyun Aata Hai, Ijazat, Junoon, Jane Bhi Do Yaro, Mandi, Par, Mirch Masala and many more.
No one would be annoyed to be told that Shaw’s career was not entirely without blame. Over the last decade or so, even his most die-hard fans will agree that his Hindi film excursions were largely undesirable and not close to his previous hit class. On the one hand, he finds funny here and Iqbal and occasionally wins brownie points on Wednesday and Ishqiya. On the other hand, you will see him in films like Ramprasad Ki Tehrvi, where most of the cast are reduced to a garlanded photo frame and The Tashkent files asking you if Nashiruddin Shah has lost faith in the film. The unpredictable Shabana Azmi scolds him (in retaliation for Shah’s jibs at Farhan Akhtar’s acting prowess in this part of Milkha): “Nasir should focus on the quality of his own work. He can’t judge any movie after jackpot … “
Remembering his amusing Frank and the next day, Shaw admitted that he was born to act. Based on his recent war of words, it is greatly diminished by the assessment that he was ‘born to respond’!
