To act in a Shakespeare based Play is the dream come true for any actor. And our veteran actor Nasureedin Shah and Tisca Chopra will be experiencing the same emotion. Both the actors have been roped as the lead roles for the film, ‘The Hungry’, written and directed by Bornila Chatterjee is an adaptation to Shakespeare drama Titus Andronicus. The film is set in the circles of North India.
Tisca’s character, Tulsi Joshi will be seen taking revenge for the murder of her first born son and the movie will showcase the fight between the power and love.
The film will also feature Sayani Gupta, Neeraj Kabi and Suraj Sharma (who made his debut with Life of Pi) in short roles.
In conversation with one of our sources, our Indian film and stage actor-director, Naseeruddin Shah, who will be seen portraying a pivotal role as Tathagat Ahuja in the film, stated, “What really got through to me was that it’s a pretty accurate picture of the small town power elite in India where you have the sugar barons, the guys who make textile or landlords. There have been many instances of brothers gunning each other down, parents killing their children or vice versa. It was a sort of an attempt to understand people of that kind, and not pass judgment on them.”
The film is expected to hit theatres in December this year and it would be a treat for the audience to watch Nasureedin Sir after a long gap on screen.
