Vicky Kaushal on Irrfan Khan:
The director-actor duo came to the sets of ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ to promote their new film ‘Sardar Udham’, in which Vicky Kaushal plays the titular character that was once set to be visualised on Irrfan Khan. The actor in the show proclaimed himself to be a fan of late actor Irrfan Khan.
In conversation with the guests, Archana Puran Singh talked about how the protagonist is a tough role to play and on top of it Irrfan Khan had been chosen to portray the role at first. Vicky added that he loved the late actor a lot.
“Ma’am actually, I am a big fan of Irrfan sir. I feel he’s one of the finest actors in the world,” he said, adding: “I feel that nobody can fit in his shoes, because not only the size but the quality of the shoe itself is unique.”
Talking about ‘Sardar Udham’, he said, “Every shot, every take of this film, is a tribute to Irrfan sir.”
‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ airs on Sony Entertainment Television. Meanwhile, ‘Sardar Udham’ is going to be released on Amazon Prime Video on October 16, 2021.
