Mumbai: Actress Vidya Balan who will be seen with the veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah in her upcoming film “Begum Jaan” says it’s always exciting to work with him.
“I am looking forward to work with Naseer saab. Naseer and I have worked in completely two different worlds in the ‘The Dirty Picture’ and ‘Ishqiya’ and this again is a diametrically opposite world. It’s always exciting and nerve-wracking to work with him,” Vidya Balan said.
