Inspired by an actor

Film-maker Tigmanshu Dhulia says the presence of Irrfan in his films leads him to write extraordinary stuff, as he knows that the actor can pull off anything.

“Irrfan is my friend and together, we have done many films. He pushes me and my skills as a writer and director. When Irrfan is there, I don’t do anything ordinary. In fact, I go out of my way while writing as I know Irrfan is doing it and he can pull it off,” the 45-year-old confesses.

“It’s always a privilege to work with Irrfan. He is my friend. He is such a fantastic actor that he tends to push out the actor within me,” he adds. Tigmanshu has made films like Haasil, Charas: A Joint Operation, Paan Singh Tomar and now, Sahib, Biwi aur Gangster Returns with Irrfan.

He says that it is always comfortable to work with friends as a cordial give-and-take relationship can exist. “When you work with friends, there is not only a comfort zone but your work is also polished. Give and take is good. If a person who you don’t like suggests you do something, you will never take his suggestions — but if a friend makes a suggestion, then you would listen to him,” Tigmanshu says.

 “And when you speak, he will listen to you and work becomes interesting and innovative and people also like it,” adds the film-maker.

 Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns also stars Jimmy Shergill, Mahie Gill and Soha Ali Khan.
