Vidya Balan is fascinated with the poetic wooing style of old-timer
Naseeruddin Shah rather than wickedly funny guy Arshad Warsi in
Vishal Bhardwaj"s protege Abhishek Chaubey"s directorial debut Ishqiya.
Talking about the difference in the approach of both her lovers
in the movie, Vidya informs, “Arshad"s character is a typical guy
for whom love is the way to get sex and Naseer saab"s character is
more old school."
She continues, “Krishna is not apologetic about her needs. She
gets attracted to Arshad"s character and there is a certain
culmination to it. With Naseer saab she enjoys that attention. He
woos her in a classical way."
No wonder Vidya falls for Naseeruddin Shah when he woos her with
'Dil toh bachcha hai ji".
Ask her how she would like to be wooed in real life she admits,
“Fortunately or unfortunately I love the Naseer saab kind of
romance, someone who woos with beautiful words and poetry. It"s old
school filmy style. I don"t mind when a man opens a door for me or
pulls out the chair for me. That chivalry is there in his character
though in a different way because it"s a rural setting."
