Irrfan Khan to learn the art of hair cutting for Billo Barber

Irrfan Khan is very excited about signing Priyadarshan's new project Billo Barber where he plays the title role and becomes the first Indian actor to actually learn the art of hair-cutting. "Not hair-styling, mind you. I don't want to learn the barber's art from some posh salon in a 7-star hotel. That kind of hair cutting I know already. I've done it to my kids. The bonafide Barbers hold the scissors in a different manner and the way they hold the customer's hair is different. I am actually going to sit with a roadside Barber and observe him at work. As soon as I finish learning you'll be the first person whose hair I'll cut and then probably Shah Rukh Khan who's my co-star in Billo Barber." He has already started shooting for the film. "We complete the film by July." Irrfan is hugely kicked about this co-star. "Shah Rukh is such a sport. He called me and said 'I'll dance in the film while you do the acting'. He's so comfortable in his space. I want to learn that from him. I want to be comfortable in my surroundings. That's the only plan I have for my career." Irrfan was longing to work with Priyadarshan. "I saw his recent film Kanjeevaram. Excellent film. If he has been doing a spate of comedies it's because that was the market's demand. Billo Barber will take him into a different league. It's a very moving story." Irrfan admits he had to act restrained in his most recent release Krazzy 4. "When we were shooting there were moments when I had to hold myself back. They wanted to focus more on the story. Many of my proposed scenes were eliminated. But I've no complaints. Krazzy 4 is popular with kids. I always wanted to do a film that kids would love. I've been doing too many grownup films." So why doesn't Irrfan direct a film? "Only when it comes naturally to me. I'll only direct when I find a story so compelling that I want to share it with the audience. It may come very soon," signs off Irrfan.
