Bollywood veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah marvels at the US-based Indian filmmaker Mira Nair's positive attitude and her perseverance to "experiment" with different styles of filmmaking.

"She (Mira Nair) is very brave that she experiments with a lot of different styles of filmmaking and she is not afraid of failing. I really admire that spirit about her," said Naseer, who worked with Nair in 2001 movie "Monsoon Wedding".

So far Nair has directed "Salaam Bombay!", "Monsoon Wedding", "The Namesake", "Kama Sutra: A Tale Of Love", "Mississippi Masala" and "Vanity Fair", among others.

While "Salaam Bombay!" showed the day-to-day life of street children in Mumbai, "Monsoon Wedding" was about a chaotic Punjabi Indian wedding.

Mira's latest drama "The Reluctant Fundamentalist", released Friday, is based on Pakistani author Mohsin Hamid's novel of the same name that talks about the changing scenario in post 9/11 US through a young Pakistani immigrant in the US.

Naseer, who has read the novel already, is quite confident that the film will be hard-hitting and truthful.

"It ('The Reluctant Fundamentalist') will be a truthful, hard-hitting and entertaining movie," said the 59-year-old, who was present at the premiere of "The Reluctant Fundamentalist" here Wednesday.

"I can't quite imagine how it (the novel) has been made into a movie and that's why I am so curious about it," he added.

"The Reluctant Fundamentalist" stars Britain-based Pakistani origin actor Riz Ahmed along with Hollywood biggies Kate Hudson, Liev Schreiber and Bollywood veterans Shabana Azmi and Om Puri.
