Mumbai: Veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah has essayed varied roles in his 36-year-long career. Vidya Balan, his co-star in `The Dirty Picture`, says his character in this film is his spiciest role since `Tridev` where he had featured in the fun song `Tirchi Topiwale`.
"It was great fun to work with him again. After `TirchhI topiwale`, this is one spicy role he has done. So he was having a lot of fun working on his character. I was having more fun because I was seeing Naseerji in a new light, said Vidya who has worked with Naseeruddin in "Ishqiya".
The 33-year-old actress also talked about Emraan Hashmi and Tusshar Kapoor, who are a part of the film.
"Tusshar and I are very fond of talking, so we used to keep talking all the time. Emraan talks very less, so the only conversation we had was in front of the camera. But I liked the track with him because it starts with hatred, but like you know, hatred is the first step to love, so...it`s a mature take on that," she said here during a promotional event at Reliance Digital.
In "The Dirty Picture", the otherwise reserved Vidya will be seen at her boldest ever avatar, as she essays the role of a 1980s dancing star.
Directed by Milan Lutharia, the film will release Dec 2.
