The year 2017 is proving to become a rather interesting one for the much-adored actor of Bollywood, Irrfan Khan. Starting this year, where a much talked about show on Netflix produced by a Japanese-Canadian production house Tokyo Trials became a must watch for everyone in the digital world. Soon, came the roaring success of Hindi Medium, one of the only successful films so far of the ongoing year proving that Irrfan only intends to be a part of the good content.
Now, the actor has recently wrapped up the shooting of his next Hollywood project and is back in India to begin shooting of his next, which was in news a while back. While much was speculated, it’s now official that the actor is joining hands with the media honcho, Ronnie Screwvala for a brand new project under the banner of RSVP, Ronnie’s new film production venture.
The film is currently untitled and will have Irrfan and another leading actor paired with him in the film. Set to be directed by Akarsh Khurana, the film tells the tale of three characters from different walks of life who set off together on a somewhat bizarre journey which helps them find some normalcy in their lives.
When asked Irrfan Khan, he said,“I’m excited to be collaborating with Ronnie again. It’s a fun character for me to play and rather interesting project to be a part of.”
Keeping up with his trend to always take on rather interesting characters, Irrfan will essay the character of a conservative yet quirky, simple and opinionated lover of Urdu poetry.
We hear he will continue to delight the audiences with his unique sense of comic timing, something which has made him gain a place in our hearts.
The film will go on floors at the end of this month after Irrfan returns from the world premiere of Anup Singh‘s The Song of Scorpions at the Locarno Film Festival.
