Mumbai: Veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah is delighted to team up with Bollywood diva Madhuri Dixit in Vishal Bhardwaj's ‘Dedh Ishqiya,’ and says he is looking forward to their working together.
‘It's a really funny script. What Vishal Bhardwaj and (director) Abhishek Choubey have come up with is quite gorgeous. And I'm really looking forward to doing this film. I am very happy to get to work with Madhuri. Whatever work we've done together so far has been very sketchy,’ said Naseer.
Recollecting his past collaborations with Madhuri, Naseer said: ‘Madhuri and I have worked together in “Rajkumar,” which was not so nice. And then we did “Gaja Gamini” together. Maybe you should ask Madhuri what “Gaja Gamini” was all about. I still haven't been able to figure it out. We did “Tridev” but didn't have any work together in this film.’
Talking about their roles in ‘Dedh Ishqiya,’ Naseer said: ‘We play two con-persons trying to constantly out-con each other.’
‘Dedh Ishqiya’ is a sequel to 2010 film ‘Ishqiya’ starring Vidya Balan, Naseer and Arshad Warsi. While Naseer and Arshad would reprise their roles, Madhuri has taken Vidya's place.
