Actor Naseeruddin Shah, who played the common man against tough cop Anupam Kher in “A Wednesday”, says that his role as a police officer in suspense thriller “Charlie Kay Chakkar Mein” is completely different from Kher’s role.
“He was an idealistic, straightforward and honest police officer but the role that I’m playing is not at all like him,” said Naseerudin to queries about similarities between the two characters, while attending the opening night of Prithvi Film Festival here.
Both Kher and Naseeruddin had earned accolades for their performance in the fast-paced thriller directed by Neeraj Pandey, where they were seen going at each other with sharp, witty one-liners.
“Charlie Kay Chakkar Mein” deals with drugs, and murder among other twists and turns.
Regarding the film, Naseeruddin said: “It’s a mystery and generally a thriller is described as, ‘don’t miss the beginning and don’t reveal the end’. If I say a lot, the suspense will be revealed, so I can’t talk much… you watch the film and make conclusions on your own.”
“Charlie Kay Chakkar Mein” produced by Karan Arora and directed by Manish Srivastava under the banner Picture Thoughts Production, is releasing on November 6.
