Actress Soha Ali Khan says she was delighted to see her director Tigmanshu Dhulia and co-star Irrfan Khan's mutual fondness translate beautifully in their upcoming film Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster Returns.
"It was lovely to see the chemistry between Tigmanshu and Irrfan because they have worked so often together and they really feed off each other's creative energy. You could see Tigmanshu get visibly excited whenever Irrfan was working. It was enjoyable to see an actor and director get along so well," Soha told in an interview.
Irrfan and Dhulia first worked together in Haasil in 2003, Charas in 2004 and last year's Paan Singh Tomar, their most successful film till date.
The combination of Dhulia's visual aesthetic and Irrfan's acting prowess has made the pair the cinematic powerhouse that they are today.
Besides Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster Returns, Irrfan is all set to play villain in Dhulia's Bullet Raja, which stars Soha's brother- Saif Ali Khan.
Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster Returns is the sequel to the 2011 film, Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster. The film also stars Jimmy Shergill and Mahie Gill, who will be seen reprising their roles from the previous film. Irrfan and Soha are new additions.
In Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster Returns, the 34-year-old actress plays an oppressed wife.
