Late Irrfan Khan, who gave us memorable performances in films like Talvar, Paan Singh Tomar, Hindi Medium and others, worked with Kangana Ranaut in Anurag Basu's Life In A Metro, though the duo didn't shared the screen space. While our wish of watching them together on the silver screen, left unfulfilled, the Fashion actress once revealed that Irrfan had refused to work with her. Recalling that incident, Kangana told Indian Express, "I told him we must start that film. He is like – 'Yeah but ek mayaan me do talware kaise rahengi'. With this proverb, he politely rejected the film.
Kangana added, "I thought that was a compliment. I would love to have someone like Irrfan sir work with me. Someone who will give a tough competition. For me, it is a big deal that he thinks that I am a competition for him. It is such a compliment. I am floored and flattered by it."
On the professional front, Kangana Ranaut will be next seen in Thalaivi. While the film was scheduled to release on April 23, it got postponed due to the second wave of COVID-19. Sharing this news, the makers wrote, "As a team, we have sacrificed a lot in making this film and thank every member of the cast and crew who supported us in this challenging but remarkable journey. Since the film has been made in multiple languages, we would like to release it in all languages on the same day. But with an alarming rise in COVID-19 cases, subsequent precautions and lockdowns, even though our film is ready for release on 23rd April, we want to extend all the support towards the government rules and regulations and have decided to postpone release of Thalaivi. Though we are deferring the release date, we are confident that we will receive as much love from you all then as well. Stay safe and looking forward to everyone's support." The film is directed by AL Vijay and also stars Arvind Swami in a key role.
