Irrfan Khan continues to do Indian cinema proud all over the world.
Just when he is covering himself with another round of high encomium for his performance in Anup Singh’s Qissa, news comes that Irrfan is all set to do another international project to be directed by the very talented Qissa director Anup Kumar.
In the film, Irrfan Khan will be paired opposite the stunning Iranian beauty Golshifteh Farahani.
Apart from her mesmerizing looks, the rebellious actress is known for her presence in internationally celebrated movies including Dariush Mehrjui’s Santouri (The Santoor Player), Bahman Ghobadi’s Half Moon (winner of the Golden Shell at the 2006 San Sebastian Film Festival), and the late Rasool Mollagholipoor’s M for Mother (Iran’s nominee for the 2008 Academy Awards in the Best Foreign Language Film category)
After posing nude for a French magazine Farahani was apparently banned from entering her home-land Iran.
Her coming together with Irrfan in Anup Singh’s film signals a new chapter in the Bollywood’s global awakening.
Having had the singular honour of having worked with some of the most stunning actresses from India and abroad, from Tabu to Natalie Portman (in Mira Nair’s short film Kosher Vegetarian) to Deepika Padukone in the forthcoming Piku, Golshifteh Farahani seems to fit into Irrfan’s global scheme of things.
When contacted Irrfan admits, “There is a film happening with Golshifteh Farahani. But I can’t talk about it right now.”
