It has been two decades now that Naseeruddin Shah was seen on television. He was seen playing the lead character in Gulzar's serial Mirza Ghalib which was the story of the legendary Urdu poet. Naseer will now do a cameo in the new version of the famous detective serial, Karamchand, the series that showed Pankaj Kapoor as a carrot eating detective was a big hit in the late 80's. The serial is currently played as a weekly on television.
Naseeruddin Shah will be seen in one of the episodes of the serial next month. He will be shooting next week for the same. Pankaj Parashar, the director and producer of Karamchand says that Naseer wanted something interesting to come back to television. He told Pankaj that if he wants him to act for the serial, he has to create a character that will challenge enough. Shah will be seen in the role of a legal eagle in one of the episodes. Naseeruddin Shah and Pankaj Kapoor shared screen space in Pankaj Parashar's Jalwa and Banaras. They were also seen together in Vishal Bhardwaj's Maqbool.
It will definitely be amazing to see these two big stars coming together on the small screen with Karamchand.
