Naseeruddin Shah is undoubtedly one of the best performers on the Indian screen. Despite his atypical looks, he managed to make a mark for himself in both parallel and commercial films, but gives credit to Amitabh Bachchan for paving the way for unconventional looking heroes in the Hindi filmdom. Nowadays unconventional-looking actors like Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Irrfan among others have raised the bar in filmdom, but Naseer feels the real credit goes to Amitabh. “Mentality has not changed. It’s just that the audience has always appreciated good acting. If unconventional people are getting roles, that credit goes to Bachchan saab. Even he was called unconventional in the beginning of his career and now the same people say what a sexy man!” he said.
