One of the finest actors of Indian cinema is Naseeruddin Shah whose acting skills inspired many on one side while on the other side his provoking thinking makes us think deep.
Recently, the actor said the coming time will be about computers and web, and said, “The future comprises the computer and web. I think within 50 years, cinema halls will only be in museums. People will be taken around and shown, where people used to sit, where they used to buy popcorn from, and where films used to be screened.”
Shah passed a joke and said might be in coming 100 years children will e born with telephones implanted in their heads and added, “And people from that time would be in awe that thousands came together to watch a film. It’s a tragedy, films are a communal experience, more and more of it is becoming personal.”
The super talented actor further added, “I won’t be around to see it, but I really miss the thrill of going to a crowded cinema and watching a movie, immaterial if the seats were comfortable or not. I grew up in places like Meerut, Alibaug, and Nanital, where you sat on wooden seats and used to buy 40 paise tickets and watch the movie from the first row, which gave you a strain on your neck.”
“But the joy of doing that cannot be replicated by watching a movie on your mobile screen.” “I have been very fascinated by director Qaushiq Mukherjee’s films. I think he is a pretty unique filmmaker. He makes very hitting, cutting edge, whimsical and eccentric cinema and I personally like eccentric people,” the actor said.
