‘It was like going back to my student days’
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.
