Why did Naseeruddin Shah give Dedh Ishqiya event a miss?

Actor Naseeruddin Shah prefers his play to an event for his forthcoming film ‘Dedh Ishquiya’ with the Dhak Dhak girl Madhuri Dixit. The makers of the movie had held an event at a cinema hall in Malad, to launch the second trailer of the movie but Naseruddin Shah gave it a miss to attend the rehearsal for his play Katha Collage.

According to sources,”The actor had made it clear to the producers that he would attend the event only if it was held at a venue close to the place he was rehearsing at (Privthi Theatre, Juhu). However, the event was organised at a cinema hall in Malad. “It would have taken him quite a bit of time to reach the venue after wrapping up practice. That’s why he couldn’t come.”

We know Katha Collage is very close to Naseer’s heart and has resumed after a gap of seven years.
