Now this is what we call getting typecast. One of the most versatile actors in Bollywood, Naseeruddin Shah, is stuck with playing characters based on the same underworld don, Dawood Ibrahim in two films, this year.Naseer will be seen as a goon based on Dawood in Dev Anand's upcoming film Chargesheet. "I play this underworld don who operates in Mumbai from Dubai. I roll around in bed with this lovely lady," Naseer had once said about his character in the film.
And now, in Ram Gopal Varma's talked about venture, Department, the actor will be doing the same, minus the moll. "Ramu wants to portray Naseer's character as a powerful entity without stereotypical props. His rich baritone will be the only measure of the gangster's power.
Naseer in Chargesheet He doesn't need a moll to exude power," revealed a source close to the film.Now Dawood has always been popular in the film industry, whether off or on screen. With many films being made on the don, and Ekta Kapoor coming up with Akshay Kumar as the famous D, we wonder whether they should have a new category of awards next year "the best Dawood".
