Naseeruddin Shah, one of the finest actors the Hindi film industry has ever produced, released his biography, And Then One Day, recently.

We publish a five-part video series featuring Shah in which he gets candid about different phases of his life. In the first part, he talks about the early influences on his life.

Watch: 'How, and why, I became an actor'

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.”
