The filmmaker-actor duo of Irrfan Khan and Asif Kapadia is ready to set the big screen on fire once again after 16 long years. The duo previously worked together in ‘The Warrior’. The film was released in 2001 and it marked as Irrfan’s finest performance on an international level.
A source clearly states that after wrapping up his next Hollywood film ‘Puzzle’, the actor went to London to meet Asif. The source says:
“Over a few rounds of discussions, the filmmaker convinced Irrfan to be part of his film. It’s a period drama set in 1920s London. Irrfan will play the head of an Indian family settled in the UK.”
The source also adds the script is under development. Irrfan is keen on working with Asif again as well. The source adds:
“Asif is writing the movie himself. Since the story shifts between London and pre-Independence India, a good amount of research needs to be done. The script is likely to be ready by October and the film should roll by early next year.”
This is a great news for Irrfan Khan fans. As a matter of fact, the actor is presently working on Vishal Bhardwaj’s untitled next which also features Deepika Padukone in the lead role.
