Irrfan is irreplaceable. Want proof? Vishal Bhardwaj’s proposed film with Irrfan has been put on hold until the ailing actor recovers completely. The idea of replacing the actor did prop up briefly but was immediately quashed.
Says the film’s producer Prernaa Arora, “For us, that is the director Vishal Bhardwaj Sir and me, there is no question of replacing Irrfan Sir. He is irreplaceable. The project that we were doing with him remains his. We will make it whenever he is fully recovered.” Prernaa Arora’s KriArj Entertainment now teams up with Vishal Bhardawaj for an alternative project entitled Chhuriya (Knives) which goes on the floors in April. While the producer is unwilling to part with details on the project it is reliably learnt that the film tells the story of two fiercely competitive sisters who won’t stop at anything to get even with one another.
Kriti Sanon’s sister Nupur is expected to make her debut with Chhuriya. Real-life sisters Kriti and Nupur will play sisters in the film. Says Prernaa Arora, “I am not revealing anything at the moment. But Chhuriyan will spring several surprises.”
