Naseeruddin Shah has shared screen space with Vikrant Massey in the short film Half Full.
Veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah, who has appeared in short films like Interior Cafe Night, Rogan Josh and The Wallet among more, is back with yet another short film titled Half Full, streaming on ZEE5.
In a conversation with a leading newspaper, Shah spoke about the digital medium and the creative freedom that young minds get while working in the medium. The actor said that he was drawn to Half Full because “it’s a very simple and pure script, and it’s written from the heart by Karan Rawal.” He added, “It’s not been made by some producers who would insist on their vision being shown rather than the writers.”
“It’s very flattering for me to be told by youngsters that they still need me,” Naseeruddin Shah said. The actor, who has won three National Awards, added, “These short films being made for the web are very important because you are giving young filmmakers a chance to exercise their abilities, without necessarily taking the risk of either a financial loss or the disruption of a career. You don’t have to please a producer, worry about a release or if the film will make money or not. And thus, a whole lot of very good films are being made.”
