While shooting for Madaari (2015), Irrfan Khan took time out to see several cities in India, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Now, the actor, who is currently shooting in Bikaner (Rajasthan) for his next film directed by Tanuja Chandra, is set to travel to two other cities Rishikesh (Uttarakhand) and Gangtok (Sikkim) as well.
The shoot commenced in Bikaner earlier this week and Irrfan is excited about visiting these cities. A source says, “He is not only looking forward to shooting the film in various locales, but also hopes to get to taste the food and flavours the cities are famous for. Irrfan has plans to spend his time off with the locals in each of these cities. He doesn’t want to visit the cities as just a tourist. He wants to experience each city in its truest manner.”

Apart from his desire to eat local food, Irrfan is apparently spending a lot of time this week with locals who gather to see the shooting. “He, along with some crew members, went around town with some of the locals to see some of the hangouts and unconventional locations to see the city in its best light,” adds the source.
