‘It was like go­ing back to my stu­dent days’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment - Sneha Ma­hade­van

Ac­tors of­ten have to do things that they wouldn’t do oth­er­wise, just to do jus­tice to their roles. And that’s just what ac­tor Ir­rfan Khan did when he trav­elled by pub­lic trans­port while shoot­ing for his film, Madaari.

Our source re­veals, “For the shoot­ing of Madaari, Ir­rfan trav­elled by var­i­ous modes of trans­port. From a bus, to a truck, to a train — he took all kinds of pub­lic trans­port. This was in keep­ing with Ir­rfan’s char­ac­ter in the film, of that of a com­mon man, that re­quired him to take pub­lic trans­port. This also gave Ir­rfan the ex­pe­ri­ence of meet­ing peo­ple from var­i­ous walks of life. It gave him the op­por­tu­nity to know and con­nect with com­mon peo­ple.” Ir­rfan shares, “It’s been ages since I trav­elled in bus or train. It brought back so many mem­o­ries ... of all the lifts I took as a stu­dent, the lingo the truck driv­ers speak; hail­ing from a small town I was nos­tal­gic.”

Madaari is a very spe­cial film for Ir­rfan and the sub­ject of the movie, though still un­der wraps, in­trigued him so much that apart from act­ing has also turned pro­ducer for in the project.
