There are no doubts about the fact that veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah is one of the finest actors in the Indian film industry but actor Randeep Hooda, who will be sharing screen space with Shah in thriller flick John Day, goes one step further and describes the actor's talent as 'magical'.
Talking about Shah, Hooda said, "What can I say about his acting... He's simply magic! I have been lucky I have done two plays an actor with him. He is an epitome of acting of all Indian actors." Hooda also gushed about him as a director and added, "He has directed me in two plays and it's been wonderful. He's a very good director who's fairly autocratic and in a lighter moment democratic. I don't mind working with an autocratic as long he is sure about what he is doing."
Hooda and Shah, who have worked in theatre together for quite some time, were seen together on the silver screen for the first time in the 2001 movie Monsoon Wedding.
