Naseeruddin Shah hints about third ISHQIYA film

By Pankaj Sabnani, Glamsham Editorial

DEDH ISHQIYA is yet to release, but lead actor Naseeruddin Shah is already hinting at a third film in the ISHQIYA series.

Says the actor, "I don't think Abhishek lacks confidence in making different kinds of cinema. He just wants to exhaust all possibilities of this one (ISHQIYA). I'd like to see him make a different kind of movie frankly. I don't think he'll rush into ISHQIYA 3 if there's one. He'll take his time. I'd be very curious to see what Abhishek does with a city subject for example."

Talking about what attracts him towards a film, Naseeruddin says, "It's the spirit of the story that I try to sense and that guides whether I say yes or no. That would be true even for tiny parts like in Zoya Akhtar's film (ZINDAGI NA MILEGI DOBARA). There was just one scene. She came and narrated the scene to me and I was very moved by the content of the scene. So I said yes. That turned out to be a good choice. But there have been many others like that which have not turned out so well. So I go by my instinct. There's no way you can tell how it's going to turn out. You've just got to trust your luck."

Also starring Arshad Warsi, Madhuri Dixit and Huma Qureshi, DEDH ISHQIYA is all set to release on January 10, 2014.
