Naseeruddin Shah, one of the finest actors the Hindi film industry has ever produced, released his biography, And Then One Day, recently.
The mirror, he says, made him an actor. “The mirror helped me find a lot of things about myself. Most importantly it made me realise what my strengths were. By the time I was 13 or 14, I had resolved that I wanted to be an actor. I never ever wanted to be anything else, except a cricketer, I knew I could not manage that.”
