Feb 9, 2010 (Calcutta Tube): Vidya Balan is fascinated with the poetic wooing style of old-timer Naseeruddin Shah rather than wickedly funny guy Arshad Warsi in Vishal Bhardwaj’s protégé Abhishek Chaubey’s directorial debut ‘Ishqiya’. Talking about the difference in the approach of both her lovers in the movie, Vidya informs, “Arshad’s character is a typical guy for whom love is the way to get sex and Naseer saab’s character is more old school.”
She continues, “Krishna is not apologetic about her needs. She gets attracted to Arshad’s character and there is a certain culmination to it. With Naseer saab she enjoys that attention. He woos her in a classical way.”
No wonder Vidya falls for Naseeruddin Shah when he woos her with ‘Dil toh bachcha hai ji’.
[ReviewAZON asin=”B001UE6MA2″ display=”inlinepost”]Ask her how she would like to be wooed in real life she admits, “Fortunately or unfortunately I love the Naseer saab kind of romance, someone who woos with beautiful words and poetry. It’s old school filmy style. I don’t mind when a man opens a door for me or pulls out the chair for me. That chivalry is there in his character though in a different way because it’s a rural setting.”
