Karwaan actor Irrfan Khan, who is currently undergoing treatment for Neuro Endocrine tumour in London, is expected to begin shooting for Shoojit Sircar's upcoming venture, the untitled Udham Singh biopic as soon as he’s back.
While talking abou the same, filmmaker Shoojit revealed to a leading daily that within just ten minutes of their meeting, Irrfan agreed to do the movie!
Sircar stated that when he informed the Piku star about the role, the actor literally started jumping with joy and said that this is the kind of role which he had been waiting for all his life.
"We have had a lot of heart-to-heart discussions over the last year which has only strengthened our bond. I know that whenever he gets back, I am hopeful it will be soon, his experience over the last year will add a lot of depth to the performance," the October director said.
Apparently, the film was scheduled to go on floors last year. However, due to Irrfan's health, things turned upside down.
