Naseeruddin Shah's rapport with crew impresses Sunny Leone
Indo-Canadian adult film star Sunny Leone, who will be seen with actor Naseeruddin Shah in the upcoming movie "Jackpot", Tuesday said she was impressed with the way the veteran actor carries himself both on-screen and off-screen.
Having forayed into Bollywood with the erotic thriller "Jism 2", the 32-year-old looked up to the acclaimed actor for suggestions to improve her acting skills.
"Working with him (Naseer) was so much fun...one of the first experiences with him was me telling him, 'Sir, if there's anything that I am doing wrong... that I am doing a bad job or doing a good job...any advice that you want to give me please give me... I will take it... I don't care if you think I am horrible... I will try and work better'.
"He just laughed at and patted my back," she told reporters here during the promotion of her film.
"I am sure he must have thought I am a big dork," she said.
The actress gushed about the way Naseer behaves in front of the camera as well as the way he "conducts himself with the crew".
"I learnt so much from him...not just his films...the way he behaves with his crew...how he is with his staff.. how he conducts himself as a person outside the camera."
She conceded that her jackpot moment came when she entered Bollywood and participated in "Big Boss 5".
Director Kaizad Gustad shot "Jackpot" in Goa. The film also stars actor Sachiin Joshi. It hits the theatres Dec 13.
