In The Dirty Picture (2011) Naseeruddin Shah, who played a movie star, effortlessly matched jhatkas and matkas with Vidya ‘Silk’ Balan. “For the first time in 35 years, I actually danced,” he admits. “I’m grateful to choreographer Pony Verma, for not giving me steps I couldn’t have pulled off.”

Will we see him matching steps with Madhuri Dixit in Dedh Ishqiya? “I haven’t said yes yet,” retorts Naseer. “Let them approve the script first and show it to me, before I start thinking of dancing with anyone.”

Director Sujoy Ghosh recently tweeted that he is scripting a revenge drama, Badla, with Amitabh Bachchan, Naseer and Vidya in mind. “These projects starring Mr Bachchan and me keep floating around,” shrugs Naseer. “It’s no secret that I want to work with him, but I haven’t been approached yet.”

However, he admits that he really liked Sujoy’s last film, Kahaani. “When I was shooting in Kolkata, he (Sujoy) had turned up with a request,” Naseer says. “If I had the time, I’d definitely have taken it up. I regret that I couldn’t.”
