‘I’m missing him as a friend but also as an audience’ says Vishal Bhardwaj about Irrfan Khan
Vishal, however, was supposed to begin a film with Irrfan earlier this year before the actor had to head to London for his treatment. The director ultimately put the film on hold. When asked about it, he said, “I don’t know about the film’s status. I can tell you my heart’s status and it is that we all are praying for him. Obviously I’m missing him as a friend but also as an audience. I want to see him on screen again, whether it’s my film or someone else’s.” The director is currently ready with his next project, Pataakha, a comedy-drama based on an short-story by writer Charan Singh Pathik. Featuring Sanya Malhotra, Radhika Madan, Sunil Grover and Vijay Raaz, Pataakha releases on September 28.
