So, Vishal Bhardwaj's Irrfan Khan-Deepika Padukone
starrer, produced by KriArj Entertainment is not taking off on schedule. The
film (untitled as yet) was supposed to go on floors on March 10, but now
with Deepika and Irrfan both going indisposed, the shoot in question has
Yesterday, we brought you the story of Deepika's back problem having worsened. Deepika has been advised 3-4 months rest. The Bajirao Mastani actress has been working round the clock since last year. Padmaavat’s year-long shoot took a toll on her health and the back issues resurfaced.
As for Irrfan, he put out a post yesterday asking his fans to wish well for him. THe Piku actor has been keeping unwell since 15-20 days- it was earlier detected to be jaundice, but Irrfan's recent post reads, “Sometimes you wake up with a jolt with life shaking you up. The last fifteen days, my life has been a suspense story. Little had I known that my search for rare stories would make me find a rare disease. I have never given up and have always fought for my choices and always will. My family and friends are with me and we are working it out the best way possible. In trying times, please don’t speculate as I will myself share with you my story within a week – ten days, when the further investigations come with a conclusive diagnosis. Till then, wish the best for me.”
Says Prernaa Arora (head honcho of KriArj), "I have
been attached to this film since the last 8-9 months. Hearing that Vishal was
casting Irrfan, my joy knew no bounds. Vishal-Irrfan-Deepika is such a lethal
combo, the results will unarguably be fantastic."
We were gearing up or the shoot starting mid-March. Vishal sir had landed only a week ago after doing ther recci. It was at this point that we heard from Irrfan's agency Kwan (agency that manages Irrfan) that he will be taking a break owing to jaundice.
Prernaa Arora And Vishal Bhardwaj
I am a human being first, producer later. My first priority is to care about the welfare of my actor.
After reading Irrfan's post, I have got very depressed. It is very disturbing. What's happening? Where is God?
Anyway, I bet Irrfan will back. He is a fighter and will do well for himself.
He is a fighter he will fight for himself. Right now, we are not thinking about the film--- but just about Irrfan and Deepika's health. They should get alright soon. That's all that matters."
SpotboyE.com wishes a quick recovery to Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan.
