Nandi discussed us Indian being so beholden to the West. Here is Naseeruddin Shah, probably one of the finest actors in India saying the same thing! We have achieved (specially the last generation) so much that there is no need to keep looking to West for feeling good anymore! We just need to assert our worth.
"Why these labels? Why do we have to look to the West to recognise our work?," Shah asks reporters at the Osian’s Cinefan film festival in the Capital.
"Often people abroad ask me if I am the Al Pacino of Bollywood. Why can’t they apply the same to their actors? Why don’t they call Dustin Hoffman the Om Puri of Hollywood?," Shah said
