Mumbai: Veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah is delighted to team up with Bollywood diva Madhuri Dixit in Vishal Bhardwaj`s ‘Dedh Ishqiya’, and says he is looking forward to their working together.
"It`s a really funny script. What Vishal Bhardwaj and (director) Abhishek Choubey have come up with is quite gorgeous. And I`m really looking forward to doing this film. I am very happy to get to work with Madhuri. Whatever work we`ve done together so far has been very sketchy," said Naseer.
Recollecting his past collaborations with Madhuri, Naseer said: "Madhuri and I have worked together in `Rajkumar`, which was not so nice. And then we did `Gaja Gamini` together. Maybe you should ask Madhuri what `Gaja Gamini` was all about. I still haven`t been able to figure it out. We did `Tridev` but didn`t have any work together in this film."
Talking about their roles in `Dedh Ishqiya`, Naseer said, "We play two con-persons trying to constantly out-con each other."
`Dedh Ishqiya` is a sequel to 2010 film `Ishqiya` starring Vidya Balan, Naseer and Arshad Warsi. While Naseer and Arshad would reprise their roles, Madhuri has taken Vidya`s place.
