Shah is an influential actor of the Indian parallel (New Wave) cinema and has carved a niche for himself over the years. He has been successful in mainstream Bollywood cinema as well as in parallel cinema.

His famous parallel films include NISHANT, AAKROSH, SPARSH, MIRCH MASALA, ALBERT PINTO KO GUSSA KYON ATA HAI, TRIKAL, BHAVNI BHAVAI, JUNOON, MANDI, MOHAN JOSHI HAZIR HO!, ARDH SATYA, KATHA, and JAANE BHI DO YAARO.

He became active in mainstream Bollywood cinema with the 1980 film 'HUM PAANCH.

He was much noted for his role in the film MASOOM in 1983.

In 2000, his dream of playing Mahatma Gandhi was realised when he played Gandhi in Kamal Hassan's critically acclaimed HEY RAM, which focused on the assassination of Gandhi from the assailant's point of view.

He won a lot of critical acclaim by playing the role of Mohit, the drunken coach to a deaf and mute boy in IQBAL, which was written by Vipul K Rawal with Shah especially in mind.

Shah delivered an effortless negative character as Gulfam Hassan - a Ghazal singer cum terrorist mastermind, in the 1999 Aamir Khan starrer SARFAROSH.

He also worked brilliantly in Neeraj Pandey's critically acclaimed A WEDNESDAY (2008).

Besides Bollywood films, he has starred in international projects such as MONSOON WEDDING in 2001 and in a Hollywood comic book adaptation THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN in 2003.

He was most recently seen in THE DIRTY PICTURE (2011).

The actor has won numerous accolades throughout his career and has been conferred with both the Padma Shri and the Padma Bhushan civilian awards for his contributions to Indian cinema.

Shah's upcoming film is THE HUNT, where he plays a recluse growing marijuana in his forest retreat.
