Vidya enjoys enviable position in films: Naseer
Naseer believes that his co-star now holds an enviable position in the Hindi film industry.

Mumbai: Naseeruddin Shah, who worked with Vidya Balan in two films -- 'Ishqiya' and 'The Dirty Picture', believes that his co-star now holds an enviable position in the Hindi film industry.

"She is a marvellous actress. She has been very brave, not just worked very hard but she is courageous in her choice of work... It is a testimony to her courage that she is in a position that most of our leading ladies would envy her today," the 61-year-old said at the music launch of his forthcoming film "Chaalis Chauraasi".

Naseer further believes that Vidya is the only actress around whom a woman-centric script can be woven and added: "It's a wonderful thing. So hats off to the girl."

If he is highly impressed with Vidya, Naseer also admired Abhinay Deo's 'Delhi Belly', which was scripted by Akshat Verma.

"'Delhi Belly'! It was a very funny film. There is no compromise in the film except in the climax. It is not easy to make and script such a film. And the most important thing that the film, in which the audience's finer sensibilities were completely ignored, was allowed to be made," said Naseer who started his career with an off-beat film 'Nishant' in 1975 before venturing into mainstream cinema with 'Hum Paanch' in 1980.

In 2011, he was also seen in '7 Khoon Maaf', 'That Girl In Yellow Boots' and 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara'.

His 'Chaalis Chauraasi' is releasing Jan 13 next year and he also has 'The Blueberry Hunt'.
