Mumbai: “Love Sex aur Dhokha” fame actor Amit Sial believes that veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah’s name helped his film “Charlie Ke Chakkar Mein” get noticed.
Finding a grip in film industry with Dibakar Banerjee’s “Love Sex Aur Dhokha”, Sial kept himself busy doing small roles in film and writing scripts.
Being a co-writer, co-producer and accidentally actor of the film “Charlie Ke Chakkar Mein”, Sial understands the ground reality of the movie business.
“Naseeruddin Shah’s presence brought positive changes and actor of his stature helped us to get the foothold for the film” Sial told IANS.
Speaking about casting the veteran actor in the film, he added: “Long time ago I worked with Naseer sir in a film called ‘The Coffin Maker’ and later we worked together in a play. During that time we developed a good relationship. I asked him to do me a favour and asked for his spare time to act in the film which he gracefully agreed to do.”
Sial also says that when he was writing the role for the film, he thought of someone who has the personality of Naseer sir for the role.
“But we were not sure that he will say yes or no to the movie. We were fortunate that he said yes to the film. He was the driving force to write this character,” he said.
The film is slated to release on November 6.
