Naseeruddin Shah: No actor should believe that they are universally loved

The actor-filmmaker spoke to senior journalist Kaveree Bamzai, as a part of TNIE's Expressions

Published: 24th August 2020

In this edition of Expressions, Naseeruddin Shah talks to senior journalist Kaveree Bamzai about social media trolling, the fickle nature of fame, the younger generation of actors, and more

The resentment against film families and star kids appears to be growing. “These incidents should teach every actor that the idea of ‘audience love’ is a myth. They don’t love us. They are there for the thrill. They don’t care whether you live or die,” said Naseeruddin, and went on to talk about how Aamir Khan’s trip to Turkey for scouting shooting locations got backlash in India. “Someone with 25 followers on Twitter decides to teach Aamir Khan a lesson now. For all we know, he might have been an Aamir fan all his life. Look at the kind of abuse the Bachchans received for just falling ill. The trolling happened to the epitome of a gentleman, who has been worshipped by four generations.”
