Actors often claim that it’s the script, the role, the director, the co-stars who makes them want to work in a film…
Irrfan Khan has different reason to work in the cult Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro 2, no it’s not Naseeruddin Shah! The Life of Pi actor confessed, “My kids are fans of the film. My kids are after me that I should do part two. They don’t want me to lose the chance”. We share Irrfan’s kids’ sentiments too.
Besides his children the actor has other reasons to do the second instalment of the dark satire. He explains, “It is a cult film. The film is much more relevant even today than that time. You can watch it even after 50 years. It will always be relevant because our society will always be corrupt. It talks about things that are much more relevant today like politics and the way people are manipulated. People relate to the humour in this film.”
A sequel to Kundan Shah’s 1983 hit will soon go on the floors and the part two will start exactly where the previous one had ended. Both Naseer and Irrfan will be seen in double roles in the sequel to be directed by Shah himself. Irrfan is excited to work with a cast that’s highly talented, “I am also very excited because of the director, the subject and Naseer sir. It would be fun…I still need to hear the second draft… we are still about to finalize certain things.”
All we can say is that we just can’t wait to watch Irrfan create another cult film, hai na BollywoodLifers?
