Irrfan Khan plays
a man looking for love on an app in his upcoming film Qarib Qarib Singlle. He
meets Jaya and together they embark on a journey which ends in love but not the
‘Saath jeene marne wali story’ (like the film’s tagline clarifies).
Irrfan Khan was at his candid best at the event where he was joined by his co-star, Malayalam actress Parvathy, director Tanuja Chandra and his wife Sutapa Sikdar.
When was asked about his opinion online dating, Irrfan’s reply surprised everyone. “I believe in it and I am looking for an app which makes it all easy. It is a practical thing but our society wants to cover it up and that makes it weird. Why feel guilty about a natural thing.”
He then added: “Main apna face daalonga toh log yakin nahi karenge ki yeh joh dating ke liye bol raha yeh Irrfan hai.”
Well, the statement took everyone by surprise because his wife was sitting by his side onstage and their son was in the audience.
So, was he saying it in jest?
While you mull over that, check out the trailer of Irrfan Khan’s Qarib Qarib Singlle.
In the trailer Irrfan Khan and Parvathy’s comic timing and chemistry is perfect. The film is shot in various cities on the banks of the river Ganga. The two characters start their journey as single and a crazy journey follows.
