Irrfan Khan is all set to play the lead role in an international film No Bed Of Roses to be directed by Bangladesi director Mostofa Sarwar Farooki. The bilingual (Bengali and English language) film is titled Doob in Bengali.
Irrfan’s production company will also co-produce the film. This is his second venture as a producer after Ishaan Nair’s Kaash (2015). Irrfan says he was touched by the humane angle that Farooki adapts in his stories, making them engaging to the audience. “When I saw his first film ‘Ant Story’, it immediately got me interested. I was impressed with his approach, style, and the way he unravels the story. His selection of cast and the way they behave touched me immensely,” he says. Irrfan further adds, “His works carry a strong humane angle, which is why his characters are multi layered. I am eagerly looking forward to collaborate with him and explore the film No Bed of Roses. Hope this will be a good addition to the changing landscape of world cinema.”
Apart from Khan, the main cast includes Bangladeshi actor Nusrat Imroz Tisha who starred in Farooki’s Third Person Singular Number (2009) and Television (2013), Parno Mitra and Rokeya Prachy.
