Actress Sayani Gupta will soon be sharing the screen space with veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah. They will be seen together in an Indo-Brit production, which will be an adaptation of William Shakespeare's Titus Androcinus.

According to a reliable source, this project by Bornila Chatterjee will also feature Tisca Chopra. About the forthcoming entertainer, Sayani says, "This year marks the 400th death anniversary of Shakespeare. His stories could seem a tad hyper-real for this era, [but] this film is a realistic take. The script won at a collaborative cine-lab."

It must be interesting to know that Naseeruddin was Sayani’s teacher at FTII. And now, when she’s working with him, she finds herself to be very privileged. The Fan actress says, "He is the reason I do what I do. My understanding of filmmaking and acting is all thanks to him.”

She further adds, “As a person, he is fantastic; as a co-actor, he is extremely helpful and respectful. He has immense patience. He is there when you need help, but mostly keeps out of your work territory. His innocence and sincerity is wonderful. In this film, my performance went up because of him. He has always taught us how acting is all about reacting. He is a keen listener, which adds to the performance.”

About her upcoming flick with Shah, Sayani further divulges, "This film seemed like a play. We shot for this in Delhi and Agra. The ambience on set was stimulating and since we all got along so well, it turned out to be a great shoot." Moreover, she also revealed that the film has 'a bunch of deadly actors'.

Sayani Gupta was last seen in Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Jolly LLB 2’.
