Irrfan is now a popular face in Hollywood. Having done films like A Mighty Heart (2001) with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Academy Award-winning Slumdog Millionaire (2008) with Danny Boyle, The Amazing Spiderman with Marc Webb and the recent Life Of Pi with the Oscar-winning director Ang Lee, Irrfan has quite a long list of friends in Los Angeles.

And now, the actor plans to take his film, Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns (SBAGR), which will be directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia, to international film festivals.

A source reveals, “Irrfan wants to take the film to festivals as it will give the movie better international exposure. And he’s a known face in the west now, thanks to his films.”

Moreover, we’re now informed that the actor also wants to conduct a special screening of the film for his friends in Hollywood.

The source adds, “SBAGR will be Irrfan’s second film with Tigmanshu after Paan Singh Tomar. He has many friends in Hollywood and when SBAGR releases, he wants to host a special screening for them. It will be an event where he can meet his friends and they can watch his work in the Hindi film industry too.”

SBAGR, which is a sequel to Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster (2011), has Irrfan in the lead role. He will romance two heroines — Mahie Gill, who was also in the first one, and Soha Ali Khan.
