Irrfan Khan’s first and last love was films. He was to make a film ‘Rani’ with film director Vishal Bhardwaj based on the life of Sapna Didi. Vishal’s friends said that Irfan was in the role of a gangster. It also had Deepika Padukone. The film is currently on backburner. When the film was to start two years ago, Irrfan went to Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, with Vishal Bhardwaj to see the location. The two stayed there for 15 days. Every street in the city’s historic building was spotted.
In this film, Vishal wanted to take Sapna Didi’s journey from Mumbai to Lisbon. The story of the film was based on S. Hussain Jedi’s book. The building was similar to the one built by the British in some areas of South Mumbai. Vishal had selected another place as it was not currently a building and Irfan liked the idea very much.
There is currently no progress in that film. Deepika is busy with a project of South Industry, in which she will appear with Prabhas. He will also act in Madhu Montana’s ‘Mahabharat’ in which he plays Draupadi.
Vishal Bhardwaj is currently in Mussoorie. He is currently preparing a web show. ‘Midnight Children’ is currently on hold, as Vishal’s budget expectations were different. Viewers who choose a crime thriller for the film ‘Rani’ will have to wait even longer.
