Is Naseeruddin Shah now turning to the small screen?
Can't say that. But since I am not really overloaded with work, this is a welcome change.

But why Super Selector?
Why not? It's a unique concept. What's more, I am being paid for doing what's been a childhood fantasy.

Does that mean you're quitting Bollywood?
I take it as a change. After working in so many crappy movies, I guess one needs to change one's pace.

How different was the experience?
Very tough. It is a totally different discipline. You have to be cautious all time not to put your foot into your mouth.

Do you also get to express your opinion in the show?
I try not to.

Are you disappointed with Saurav Ganguly & Co?
It is very easy to blast them, but I never write them off. Let's not forget that theirs is not really an easy job.

Who's your favourite cricketer?
Jhonty Rhodes and Nawab Pataudi. Rhodes is truly magic. He's so unreal.

You are also a member of a cricket team...
Yes, Mumbai's MCC...
