Naseeruddin Shah opens up about his role in ‘Khuda Kay Liye’
Veteran Bollywood actor Naseeruddin Shah opens up about his acting career, film industry, success and failure, why he chose to be part of Pakistani film ‘Khuda Kay Liye’ in an interview with an Indian daily.
In the interview, the actor said: “It is not always the character but what the intention behind telling the story is that matters the most.”
He further explained: “Those thoughts used to disturb me as a growing adult. I was like, 'but my friend KC Singh is such a nice fellow, it was not his decision to born a Hindu, so why would he go to hell?' We do not choose our parents and the religion we are born into'. Why should music be banned?”
The actor went on further to say that the Fawad Khan-starrer had answered all those misconceptions about the religion therefore he deemed it worthy enough to jump onboard.
He concluded saying: “All those questions were addressed in Khuda Kay Liye. So, as an actor, I had to agree with the ideology that the story was showing, not necessarily the character that I was portraying.”
