Irrfan Khan has truly had a year at the movies, with two diverse films doing exceptionally well at the box-office, Irrfan has redefined the term “Hero” in Bollywood. With growing popularity worldwide, Irrfan is a regular in Hollywood films too and the past couple of years bears testimony to that.
Now come 2018, Puzzle, Irrfan’s next Hollywood venture with Marc Turtletaub, whose previous film, Little Miss Sunshine won the coveted Academy Award for Best Film, will be releasing across the world.
But, Before its global release, the 2018 Sundance Film Festival has announced their selected feature films and amongst the 110 independent films from around the globe, Puzzle is also going to be one of them.
Irrfan has always made us proud of being a part of content-driven world cinema and he continues to keep adding feathers to his cap.
Speaking about the same, Irrfan said, “I am excited about the world premiere. This film is very close to my heart. When I read the script I knew there is something really unusual and beautiful about the story and the characters. It is a story of a woman named Agnes, taken for granted as a suburban mother, who discovers a passion for solving jigsaw puzzles which unexpectedly draws her into a new world – where her life unfolds in ways she could never have imagined. I am playing her new world 🙂 I have been grateful for the amazing opportunities that have come my way, but I really wanted to break away from the studio films for a bit and do something more intimate. I am glad that I took this chance. “
Directed by Marc Turtletaub and written by Oren Moverman, ‘Puzzle’ features Irrfan Khan, Kelly Macdonald, David Denman, Bubba Weiler, Austin Abrams, Liv HewsonAgnes in the lead roles.
The 2018 Sundance Film Festival runs January 18th through 28th. Screenings will take place in Utah’s Park City, Salt Lake City and Sundance Mountain Resort.
