As we celebrate the versatile actor’s birthday, we have made a list of Naseeruddin Shah characters that moved us with his remarkable acting

Indian Cinema is graced with the acting and performance of legendary actor Naseeruddin Shah. Having played versatile roles in the film industry, he can pull off a good guy character with his ground-breaking performance but pulling off a bad guy character is something he enjoys and comes naturally to him.

"I like playing negative characters and I do not think I have played enough of them, I am looking for more." I played so much of 'a man fighting for good cause' type of characters and come on. Now I do not want to play them anymore. I want to kill people and serve them on the platter," Naseeruddin Shah told Femina

He effortlessly achieves a delicate balance between the kinds of roles he does, thus leaving an imprint on the audience forever. Naseeruddin Shah's incredible and unforgettable performances have won him prestigious laurels including National Film Awards, Filmfare Awards, Padma Shri and Padma Bhushan.
