In a recent media interview, Taha Shah Badussha who plays Naseeruddin Shah’s second son in the upcoming web series Taj- Divided by Blood spoke about his experience working with the veteran actor.

"I feel fortunate to be able to share screen space for a pivotal role like Murad with the legendary actor Naseeruddin Shah for Taj-Divided by Blood. Naseer sir, who played my on-screen father, was an absolute delight to work with off-screens well. It was a learning experience of a lifetime to take tips about the craft while working with him."

"Despite being such a veteran performer, Naseer sir amazed me with his approach towards the script, the analysis, and the amount of work he puts in for a project, even after years of an illustrious career such as his, he is always reading his scripts akin to a newcomer, striving to make each scene better, and it was an absolutely humbling experience to watch."

Naseer sir not only shares his inputs for the script but also encourages thoughts and ideas from his co-actors, no matter how new or established they are, which inspired me. We would chat about our scenes, acting styles, the process of acting, and his experiences over the years, which not only facilitated my growth as an actor but also as a person," he concluded.

The actor is putting all his efforts into playing a historical character. From learning horse riding to sword fighting.

The web series also features Dharmendra, Aditi Rao Hydari, Rahul Bose, Zarina Wahab, Sandhya Mridul and Aashim Gulati.

Set in the 16th century, the show is all about Mughal emperor Akbar and the war of transfer of power among his three sons, Salim, Murad, and Daniyal. While Akbar is played by Shah, Taha is essaying the character of Akbar's second son, Murad.

Taha is known for his performances in films like Luv Ka The End (2011), Gippi (2013), Baar Baar Dekho (2016), Ranchi Diaries (2017), and also did web series such as Bullets, Bekaboo 2, among others. Taj- Divided by Blood will release on March 3 on Zee 5.
