Meet Shabana Azmi as Nahid in HTPL
By Joginder Tuteja, Bollywood Trade News Network
Selective Shabana Azmi is rarely seen on the big screen in current times.
Last year she was seen in two notable releases - 15 PARK AVENUE and UMRAO JAAN, both of which saw her in serious roles. But 2007 should begin on a cheerful note for her as she enacts the character of Nahid in Reema Kagti's debut venture HONEYMOON TRAVELS PVT. LTD.
In the film, she plays a middle aged woman who has just been married to a man called Oscar Fernandez (Boman Irani). Together, they play a couple who are a part of a package honeymoon trip on a bus with 5 other couples.
In the films, though people around them make fun of them, they are not really bothered about it. Both Nahid and Oscar are shown as people who have come from a tough background and have faced difficult times earlier. But in this honeymoon trip, the only purpose of their life is to keep their past behind and search for a future with each other.
