Naseeruddin Shah Movies: 5 Cameos Of The Veteran Actor That Prove No Role Is Small For Him

-

Naseeruddin Shah is a synonym for effortless performance and spectacular acting. He brings life to all his characters, forcing us to believe he is the same in real life. Be it in shorter roles or headlining a movie, Naseer Ji has always given moviegoers an unforgettable cinematic experience. The actor turns 73 today.

There are several Naseeruddin Shah movies where we crave to see the actor in longer roles. His cameos added meat to the script. Not only was he a sight to watch, but his role, despite being time-bound, left us wanting for more.

On Naseeruddin Shah's birthday, let's see some of his Bollywood cameos that made us happy.

1. Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara

The veteran actor played Imraan Qureshi's (Farhan Akhtar) father, who abandoned his pregnant girlfriend (played by Deepti Naval). For a long time, Imraan's mother has hidden the truth from him about his biological father. While you feel empathetic for the abandoned son, it is also understandable why Naseeruddin Shah took such a selfish step.

His unapologetic acting resonated with the audience. Zindagi Na Milegi Dobaara would have been incomplete without Naseer's cameo.

2. Jaane Tu...Ya Jaane Na

This one has to be one of the most entertaining Naseeruddin Shah movies. Imagine a dead person who could talk to you through his frame. While it sounds creepy, Jaane Tu...Ya Jaane Na managed to bring in the humor element by giving Naseer's character a twist. Amar Singh Rathore is a martyred king who is portrayed as a pacifist and flag-bearer of peace.

However, in reality, he is one of the most brutal and violent kings of Ranjhore and wants his son (Imran Khan) to follow in his footsteps. Ratna Pathak Shah plays his widowed wife in the movie.

3. Omkara

Naseeruddin was seen as a local politician in Vishal Bhardwaj's adaptation of Othello. Even though he had a smaller role, the actor managed to make an impact on moviegoers. Omkara featured Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor, and Ajay Devgn in leading roles.

4. Rajneeti

While everyone remembers Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Arjun Rampal, or even Manoj Bajpayee's performances, one cannot ignore the leftist leader Bhaskar Sanyal, who stole the show. This was one of the finest Naseeruddin Shah cameos.

5. Main Hoon Na

Brigadier Shekha Sharma dies at the beginning of the movie. While his role was short, the makers made sure he became an integral part of the story. Imagine seeing him in a longer role where we could see how he molded Major Ram Sharma (Shah Rukh Khan) into the man he became.

Radio City wishes Naseeruddin Shah a very happy birthday.
