MUMBAI— Here is one teaser that showcases a never-seen-before avatar of Irrfan Khan. The teaser of Abhinay Deo’s “Blackमेल” (Blackmail) starring Irrfan Khan was released on Feb. 14, Valentine’s Day, with its take on love and its misgivings.
The short teaser showcases the actor in a strange attire, bare-chested in a pair of boxer shorts with a bra-and-panty paper bag covering his face. What’s more hilarious is that he is running on the streets with two eye-holes cut into this lingerie bag. While the teaser does not reveal the plot, a middle-class married man running like this does induce immense curiosity.
Abhinay Deo directs yet another quirky, irreverent, situational, on-the-move comedy after the Aamir Khan-produced “Delhi Belly.” With the National award winner Irrfan Khan, comedy seems to have become a favorite genre after “Qarib Qarib Singlle” and T-Series- produced “Hindi Medium,” and its sequel to come as well.
Starring an ensemble cast comprising of Kirti Kulhari, Divya Dutta, Arunoday Singh, Omi Vaidya, Anuja Sathe, Pradhuman Singh Mall, Gajraj Rao amongst many others, the film promises to be a crazy comedy. Amit Trivedi tunes lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya. T-Series and Ramesh Deo Productions co-produce the film.
Produced by T-Series’ Bhushan Kumar and RDP Motion Pictures’ Abhinay Deo, “Blackमेल” is slated to release on Apr. 6. Watch the teaser here.
