Indo- Canadian porn star and Bollywood actress Sunny Leone, who is sharing the screen space with the veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah in “Jackpot” is all praise for the actor and says she is enjoying working with him. The actress is especially amused by his guiding nature.
“He (Naseeruddin Shah) is very calm and reserved but gives suggestions which is very nice,” Sunny said in an interview.
“He is a lot of fun to work with. He is not really conversant but when he get on to laugh, its the best feeling,” she added.
In “Jackpot”, directed by “Boom” fame director Kaizad Gustad, Sunny is paired opposite Sachiin Joshi and plays Naseer’s secretary in the film. Currently, the film’s team is shooting in Goa.
The actress, who made her debut with 2012 “Jism”, holds the 63-year-old veteran in high regards, who gave the notable performances in films like “Nishant”, “Manthan”, “Sparsh”, “Aakrosh” and “Masoom”.
Sunny feels honoured to share the screen space with the actor.
Recalling her first shot with the Naseeruddin, Sunny said,” I said to him, ‘if you have any advice for me whether it is good or bad, I will take it,” and even if he tells me like ‘you were horible in the shot and you should try like this’ I will not get offended.”
“Jackpot” marks the Bollywood debut of Tamil actor Bharat.
