Purush was based on a Marathi play titled Purush by Jaywant Dalvi. The cast comprised of  Om Puri, Irrfan Khan, Chandrakant Gokhale, and many other Marathi actors. It was early in Irrfan’s career, probably one of his first few films.

"We had shot the film in Wai. Irrfan played my Boyfriend... I have a very vivid memory of a scene we shot. A  boat sequence in a water dam near Wai. I still recollect Irrfan to be a reserved person then.  A couple of years ago, we happened to board the same aircraft. This was before he was detected with cancer. I was coming back from a shoot in India and he was travelling to Los Angeles for the screening of his Hollywood film 'Life of Pi'.  He was very excited about the film."

Ashvini added, "I am deeply saddened by his sudden demise. Irrfan was one of the finest actors in the Indian film industry. I have seen almost all of his films including his International projects too. He was an incredible actor and Human."
