Iconic actor Naseeruddin Shah remembers an incident from his early days within the metropolis when he was a struggler, and the way a second of realisation again then modified his perspective in the direction of prayer eternally.”I can recall that day even now. I was very vulnerable back then. I had no work, no friends in the city, no money to buy my bread and it felt like all the doors were closed. I thought I would pray. While performing Wudu I began to think, what is prayer about? Is it “saudebaazi’ (bargaining), the place I say, “God please give me this and I will become that and I will offer you that’? No! That should not be the reason why we pray! That day and ever since, I never prayed to ask anything from the Almighty. My attitude towards prayer changed forever,” the veteran actor advised IANS.

“I only pray to express gratitude. When I was broken, I realised that the only solution is to get work and whoever offers me would appear to me as ‘God-like’. I have to hold myself strong till then. I think begging to God for things while praying is despicable,” he added.

They have a voice that they express through storytelling and I think if the idea is good, it deserves support. I receive several scripts but I do not agree to work with all of them. You see, the idea, the story matters to me. I did not know this young man Karan before reading the script. That way, I did not know Shekhar Kapur before doing ‘Masoom’, I did not know Neeraj (Pandey) before doing’A Wednesday’. For me, the story matters. When I came on board for this film, I found the script interesting,” he defined.
