the shah family playbook

Naseeruddin Shah on rebellion, heartbreak, self-belief and his coming of age with Shoma Chaudhury at Algebra The Arts and Ideas Club on 15 January, 2017. Refusing to be defined by tags and genres, Naseeruddin Shah is not just an actor but a shape-shifter, transforming into roles with effortless ease. He talks with the honesty of an artist to his art about the most significant episodes of his life that have come to define who he is; a torn relationship with his father, experiences from his schooling days, the women in his life and having run away from home. For his cinematic aspirations he credits the excellent list of movies, he was made to watch as a school-going child, which introduced him to cinematic giants like Frank Capra, Elia Kazan, Orson Welles and Charlie Chaplin among others. He also goes on to point out the dismal condition of mainstream Indian cinema and why he is against the current generation of art filmmakers. He also candidly talks about his first sexual encounter and his experimentation with marijuana and LSD. Naseeruddin Shah is an Indian film and theatre actor, who has carved for himself a significant space in the field of parallel cinema. He has won three National Film Awards and three Filmfare Awards apart from being a Padma Shri and a Padma Bhushan for his contributions to the Indian cinema. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Subscribe To "Algebra Club" Channel HERE: For more content from "Algebra Club", click HERE: Like "Algebra Club" on Facebook HERE: Follow "Algebra Club" on Twitter HERE: --- Algebra takes the idea of a club – a universe of the likeminded – and expands it to new paradigms. The key idea behind Algebra is to bring together a fellowship of people who believe great cities are built not just on infrastructure but a life of the mind; who understand robust and liberal societies need the oxygen of great conversation and nuanced thinking. At a time when we are increasingly surrounded by rage and noise, Algebra is that unique live and continuous space where people could go for a genuine exchange of ideas and exposure to issues; where new seeds could be sparked, fresh perspectives formed, and intelligent connections made. Algebra – the Arts and Ideas Club is designed to host over 60 conversations over the year with topline thinkers and practitioners from almost every discipline that impacts human affairs: politics, economy, environment, spirituality, cinema, medicine, science, technology, music, media, literature, the arts, sports, people’s movements, et al. In a line, Algebra is a space where one can meet an exciting, cutting-edge spectrum of people shaping the world in different ways. Where one can test one’s ideas, challenge one’s perspectives, and build friendships. A sort of fellowship of the curious and engaged. Membership to Algebra is by invitation or referral.
