Naseeruddin Shah: Indian Cinema has a long way to go

Indian movies have always garnered international acclaim but veteran actors like Naseeruddin Shah say Indian Cinema has a long way to go to reach international standards.

We are deluding ourselves that we are making world-class cinema just because the photography has gotten better and the editing has gotten better, but our special effects don’t stand a chance when compared to something like Iron Man,” said the 63 year old actor who was part of Hollywood films like The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

“You compare our story telling with the kind of films made in Iran, Poland, and Brazil and we stand nowhere. We have stars, who pander to their own egos all the time, we don’t have a single guy like George Clooney or Brad Pitt, who will use their star clout to change things around them. Catch any of our stars doing a films like Syriana, we won’t do it yet we say we have conquered the globe,” he added.
