Irrfan’s ‘Talvar’ on film fest spree
Tuesday, Sep 8 (IANS) Actor Irrfan Khan, who is currently shooting in Lithuania, will be juggling between shoots and different film festivals following the world premier of his film “Talvar” at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).
“Talvar”, directed by Meghna Gulzar, will travel across various festivals. After TIFF, it will be screened at the BFI London Festival for its European premiere and to the Busan International Film Festival for its Asian premiere.
Talking about the film, which takes a leaf out of the real life Aarushi Talwar murder mystery, the 52-year-old said: “’Talvar’ is close to my heart, the emotion of the film compelled me to do this one. I’m immensely proud to see that the film has received an amazing response before its release. We all are looking forward to the premiere.”
“Talvar” also stars Neeraj Kabi and Konkona Sen Sharma in key roles, with Tabu in a role which is yet to be revealed. The movie, penned by Vishal Bhardwaj, is releasing on October 2.
Irrfan, who will be at TIFF, has been requested to be present at all the film festivals for “Talvar” because of his international appeal.
“The Lunchbox” actor is currently filming Hollywood film “Inferno” and is also awaiting the release of “Jazbaa” on October 9.
