"He (Naseeruddin Shah) is an inspiration. As an actor when he comes on to the sets, the whole atmosphere changes. He lends pure energy to the sets which is great. I have had an unspoken relationship with Naseerji since years. I saw Naseerji in a film when I was in school and since then I have been a fan," Kashyap told reporters.

"Naseerji has always supported me. When I didn't have money and even when I had money he has come all out to support - whether it's a one-day shoot like in 'That Girl In Yellow Boots' or a whole film like `Michael'. He is always very supportive, encouraging and even critical," he added.

In 'Michael', Naseeruddin plays the protagonist, and the role is basically about the trials and tribulations of a tainted cop. The film has been directed by newcomer Ribhu Das Gupta and will be screened at the Toronto Film Festival before its release in India next month.
