Upcoming actors keep working: Naseeruddin Shah

"Come what may, one should not lose hope. However bad the situation may be upcoming actors should keep working," said the National Award winning actor. Interacting with the media on the fifth day of 11th edition of the Mumbai International Film Festival, a Reliance BIG entertainment initiative, Shah said that he overcame bad phases in his life by immersing himself in work.

"I never thought negative and kept acting. And that is what I would like to tell all that have a positive approach, never give up hope and keep working," he said. Shah further said that upcoming actor should keep "practising" their craft.

He was also all praise for actor Harish Patel, who was also present on the occasion. "Bollywood failed to recognise Harish Patel's talent. He has done some good work abroad, especially the United Kingdom," he said.

Nasserrudin and Harish Patel star in 'Today's Special', a movie which deals with the story of a cab driver who turns cook. It was screened at the MAMI festival in the Asian Premier section. The movie is directed by David Kaplan. It is a heart-warming New York tale based on actor Aasif Mandvi's award winning Off-B roadway play, "Sakina's Restaruent."
