New Delhi, Aug 26 (IANS) After delivering superlative performances in the Indian film industry for over 30 years, veteran actor-filmmaker Naseeruddin Shah says acting in movies is the most boring job in the world.

'(I'm) terribly fatigued at the thought of acting in movies. Movie acting is the most boring job in the world. No one would do it if it weren't for the money,' Naseeruddin said in a yet to be aired interview to NewsX.

The actor spoke about his films, the film industry and his colleagues to the channel for a show called 'Naseeruddin Shah Unplugged' on the sidelines of a theatre workshop at Srinagar.

Though Naseer, who gave some of his best performances in movies like 'Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron' and 'Masoom' is a three-time National Award winner and a recipient of the Padma Shri and Padma Bhushan awards, he has always stayed away from the industry's glamour. And he thanks his stars for it.

'Nature has saved me from major stardom,' he said.

According to Naseer, whose acting in Neeraj Pandey's 'A Wednesday' won critical acclaim, the Indian film industry is suffering from a sheer lack of quality scripts.

'We do not exactly produce the greatest scripts in the world. We are still content to churn out what the hacks who pass off as writers in the film industry (write based) on the last Hollywood film they have seen.'

However, he feels 'there are a number of youngsters who are producing promising scripts,' especially in the comedy genre.

The show will go on air on NewsX Thursday at 8:45 a.m. and will be repeated at 11:45 a.m. and 2:45 p.m.
