Shabana ji as audience

I can like something abstract, I can like something very dramatic.... I have a very eclectic choice as far as films go. But I do hold good performances as essential to my being interested in watching a film.

Source: The video linked below, a brief interview from late 1999 or early 2000 that is just lovely to watch. Shabana ji's comments about the connections between her work as actor, activist, and Parliamentarian are interspersed with clips from one of my most favorite movies, Godmother.
