Irrfan is irreplaceable. Want proof? Vishal Bhardwaj’s proposed film with Irrfan has been put on hold till the ailing actor recovers completely. The idea of replacing the actor did come up but was immediately quashed.
“For both director Vishal Bhardwaj sir and me, there was absolutely no question of replacing Irrfan sir — he is irreplaceable. The project that we were doing with him remains his. We will make it whenever he is fully recovered,” says producer Prernaa Arora.
Prernaa’s KriArj Entertainment now teams up with Vishal Bhardawaj for an alternative project titled Chhuriyan (knives), which goes on the floors in April. While the producer is unwilling to part with details on the project it is reliably learnt that the film tells the story of two fiercely competitive sisters who won’t stop at anything to get even with one another.
Kriti Sanon’s sister Nupur is expected to make her debut with Chhuriyan. Real-life sisters Kriti and Nupur will also be playing sisters in the film. “I am not revealing anything at the moment! But Chhuriyan will spring several surprises!” says an excited Prernaa.
