Irrfan Khan and Tigmanshu Dhulia delivered one of the most talked about film this year, Paan Singh Tomar. However when it comes to another outing of theirs next year, Bullet Raja, the actor is yet to figure out what he is actually doing in the film.
“The film basically has Saif Ali Khan as the central protagonist. Though he has started shooting for the film with Tigmanshu, Irrfan is yet to join them. Yes, he is playing an important part but he is yet to be given a detailed briefing about what is expected out of him”, informs a source.
This is expected soon now since Irrfan is back from the shooting schedule of D-Day, a film where he indeed has a major role to play.
“He was also busy with the promotion of Life Of Pi. However, he trusts Tigmanshu to do good justice to the part offered to him. They are a team and their Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns would be releasing soon as well. He consented to work in Bullet Raja as a friendly gesture. After all, it is a known fact that whenever Tigmanshu plans a film, there is always a place reserved for Irrfan. It is a different matter that he may choose not to do a film, as was the case in Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster or Shagird. However for Bullet Raja, he said yes without even listening to his part in detail”, the source continues.
This is the reason why Irrfan isn’t bothered about the fact that he is yet to know details. “That’s because Tigmanshu asked me to do the film and I am doing it. I have not really started thinking about it though. I start investing in a film when time comes as I don’t multitask. I will start concentrating on Bullet Raja when time comes”, says Irrfan.
He denies that his part in the film is a mere special appearance. “No, it is much more than that. It is a pivotal role.”
