Irrfan to play a porn filmmaker

Irrfan Khan, who confessed to this writer, that he is jobless after The Lunchbox and in pursuit of a further excellence in his roles has finally found another character to challenge himself as an actor.


In Tigmanshu Dhulia’s The Killing Of A Porn Filmmaker, Irrfan will star as a porn director, a real lowdown sleaze ball who indulges in the lowliest of porn filmmaking.


Reveals Tigmanshu, “We are talking about a guy who plants secret cameras in toilets, shoots honeymooning couples with hidden cameras…Irrfan plays the supreme of sleaze.” But there is a redemptive graph to the character.


Says Tigmanshu, “Irrfan’s character redeems himself. He rises from the depths of sleaze and emerges a hero…why and how, I can’t reveal. But after our collaboration in Paan Singh Tomar, this would be a completely new world.”


The film in English and Hindi would star a major international actor alongside Irrfan. It would also touch on the theme of racism.


Irrfan and Tigmanshu have earlier collaborated on Charas, Haasil and Sahib Bibi Aur Gangster Returns. They were to also collaborate on Bullett Raja. Irrfan’s role was finally done by Vidyut Jamwal.


Says Tigmanshu, “Irrfan and I actually started working on The Killing Of A Porn Filmmaker right after Charas in 2004. We shot for a week and then the producer played truant. We are all set to revive the project in 2014.”


Irrfan has begun to prepare for his porn filmmaker’s role. He has been reading up on perverts who plant cameras in private places and their modus operandi.
