Actor Nalneesh Neel, who may not speak a word in Shoojit Sircar’s Gulabo Sitabo (2020), still had a wonderful time working with two big stars, Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana. Nalneesh has also acted in films like Fukrey Returns (2017), Chhichhore (2019), and Sab Kushal Mangal (2020).
Speaking about his role, the actor said, “I'm playing the role of caretaker [Sheikhu] of Fatima Mahal. [I, along with] my wife and son are very close to Mirza (Amitabh Bachchan) and his Begum Fatima (Farrukh Jaffar) and take care of them. Amitabh Sir and I have some quiet funny moments together. We shot the film in Lucknow."
"It was a great moment working with Amitabh Sir,” he continued. “We had worked together before for an ad shoot. When Shoojit Sircar cast me and told me you are doing this character along side Amitabh Sir, Ayushmann, Vijay Raaz, and Brijendra Kala and your most scenes are with Amitabh, I was overwhelmed with joy.”
I feel fortunate to work with him as people dream of working with him. We went for the reading of the film to his residence in Mumbai and it was an amazing experience with such great stars. I got to learn a lot of things from him and his dedication towards work. He makes his co-stars comfortable,” he said.
Gulabo Sitabo is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
