A Wednesday , a film based on Mumbai that depicts the battle of wits between the police and an unknown terrorist has inspired actors like Naseeruddin Shah , Anupam Kher and Jimmy Shergill to give in their best performance.

The film, released this Friday, got rave reviews by the industry experts and left all the actors of the film charged up to know its fate at the box office.

"In a career span of 23 years, if an actor still gets excited and inspired then it has a lot to do with the script, the director and the entire team of that project. 'A Wednesday' is one such film. It forced me to go beyond my resources and explore new avenues. I am proud to be a part of this film," says Kher, who is playing Commissioner of Police in the film.

The film, by debutant Neeraj Pandey, tells the story of certain events on a fateful Wednesday that unfold between 2 and 6 pm, when a man (Naseer) calls Commissioner of Police (Kher) and let him know that he had planted bombs in five places around the city.

For Naseer, the character he is playing in the film is of lifetime. "I took on this role because I have never played anything like this before. The script is the hero of the film," says the versatile actor known for his power packed performances.

Both Naseer and Kher recently took a unique step to promote the film, whose theme is terrorism and train blasts.

The twosome decided to meet at a town side restaurant. While Kher reached on time, Naseer got delayed due to the infamous traffic. Not the one to waste time, Kher quickly 'feasted' himself with a plate of pav bhaji at 'Satkar Restaurant', much to the surprise and shock of the on lookers there.

And the moment when he met with Naseer, they immediately went to Churchgate station and boarded the first class compartment of a 2:36 pm Borivali local. And what followed next was sheer time of nostalgia.

While Naseer reminisced his days when he used to travel without ticket from Bandra to Mumbai Central and back for almost 6 months and with all due respect to the Railway Authority also said that they now cannot do any thing to him.

Kher too shared his experience stating that once as he was crossing the railway tracks, a man offered him his hand to pull him up on the platform and then refused to leave his hand until he took him to the police station.

It was only then he realized that the person to give him his hand was no other than a Police Inspector.

The two actors later got down at Ville Parle station and were seen requesting passengers to not to push each other.
