Naseeruddin Shah speechless after 'coming home' to Lahore
Veteran Indian actor Naseeruddin Shah "came home" as he and his family, along with three fellow actors arrived in Lahore on a seven day tour of Pakistan.
The veteran Bollywood actor who is widely revered in Pakistan, will act in a play for the Faiz Foundation.
"We will do two shows of our drama based on Ismat Chughtai's stories for Faiz Foundation. These shows will be staged on December 1 and 2 at the Alhamra centre," The Express Tribune quoted Shah, as saying.
"The love I get here, I do not have the words to describe that. I don't feel scared at all here. It feels like...like I have come back home," he further said.
Shah has previously worked in Pakistani stage and celluloid productions, most famously in the 2007 film Khuda Ke Liye. A few years ago, he had performed in a similar stage play at the Alhamra Theatre.
Shah will feature in a Pakistani Punjabi production 'Zinda Bhaag' slated for a December release.
"(The film) is in its final stages, it involves filmmakers from here, Farjad Nabi and Meenu (Gaur)," he said, adding that he would try to return to Pakistan for the premiere of the film.
