Actor Irrfan Khan, whose upcoming film “Madaari” will be clashing with megastar Amitabh Bachchan’s “Te3n”, doesn’t seem to be bothered about the battle at the box office.
“We decided two months back (about the release date of the film). Is it (release date of “Te3n”) being decided now? I think three films can come on June 10,” Irrfan told reporters here at the trailer launch of “ Madaari” on a lighter note.
“They are (referring to Amitabh Bachchan) big people, they have been in the industry for long time. Have been watching their work since childhood. We hope audience will watch both the films,” said Irrfan who shared screenspace with the megastar in “Piku”.
“Te3n”, a thriller film directed by Ribhu Dasgupta, stars Amitabh Bachchan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Vidya Balan.
The film was earlier set for a 20 May release. But later, when it was found to be clashing with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s “Sarbjit”, the date was postponed to June 10.
“Madaari” is a social-thriller film directed by Nishikant Kamat and stars Irrfan Khan and Jimmy Shergill. It is scheduled for release on June 10.
When Irrfan was asked if he is scared of the appreciation that actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui is receiving as both are from National School of Drama, he said, “Are we only two who are from NSD?”
On watching Nawazuddin’s films, Irrfan said, “I liked “Lunchbox”.”
“The Lunchbox” had Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Irrfan Khan and Nimrat Kaur in the lead roles.
