Irrfan Khan: I'd love to be killed....

A rumour has it that the inimitable performer Irrfan Khan isn't too pleased being cast by Vishal Bhardwaj as one of Priyanka Chopra's seven husbands in Saat Khoon Maaf and was in two minds about the part until Vishal persuaded him and assured him that the supposedly saleable John Abraham and the distinguished Naseeruddin Shah and Mohanlal are also part of Priyanka Chopra's harem in Saat Khoon Maaf.  

Irrfan has finally relented. Barely concealing his sarcasm the actor described by Time as 'the one who can do it all' says, "Whether it's Dibakar Banerjee, Shimit Amin, Anurag Basu, Anurag Kashyap or Vishal Bhardwaj, they all make the kind of films that suit my sensibilities perfectly. But they have all moved to another phase in their career. The Vishal that I worked with when I played the lead in Maqbool is not the same filmmaker who's making Saat Khoon Maaf. He needs commercially viable stars for the budget that his films now need. And let's be fair, I'm not commercially viable enough to make a difference to project."

Evading the spell of bitterness, Irrfan says, "Vishal and I kept missing each other. Finally I spoke to him in Mussourrie the other day. He's writing the script there. Yes I'd love to be killed by Priyanka Chopra. Which man wouldn't?"   

The truth is, Irrfan is not too happy with the fact that directors whose art and creativity he trusts are coming to him with secondary roles.
