‘Shabana wants to work with me’
Bollywood filmmaker Neeraj Ghaywan (inset) says veteran actor Shabana Azmi (above) has expressed her desire to work with him after watching his debut film that opened to a good response.
The movie, starring actors Richa Chadha, Sanjay Mishra, Shweta Tripathi and Vicky Kaushal, has been getting rave reviews, both from the audience and the film fraternity. “Lot of people have come out and said good things about the film,” says Ghaywan. “Shabana ji said if I don’t cast her in my next film, she will protest outside my house. Javed sir (lyricist Javed Akhtar) said he liked it too,” he adds. Considering this was his maiden film, the filmmaker thinks there will be some pressure when he makes his next.
