In Bollywood, they say, stars are made, but actors are born. And one such actor was born 63 years ago today (July 20), who continues to shine on with his intense acting in films like A Wednesday and Ishqiya.
Yes. We are talking about none other than Naseeruddin Shah.
Born on July 20, 1950, the actor started his career with Nishant in 1975 and has been a delight to watch ever since.
Shah, who turns 63 on Saturday, will soon be seen in Dedh Ishqiya, along with Madhuri Dixit, Huma Qureshi and Arshad Warsi. The film is a sequel to Ishqiya.
A versatile actor, Shah has bowled the audiences over with his wide range of characters — from a doting dad in Masoom, to a married man falling for another woman in Ijaazat, to the womanising superstar in The Dirty Picture.
An actor par excellance, Shah is best known for films such as Aakrosh, Sparsh, Mirch Masala, Mandi, Ardh Satya, Katha, and Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro.
We wish the actor a very Happy Birthday and many more memorable years in the industry.
