Irrfan-Tigmanshu to team up again?

By HT

Mumbai, July 1 -- In the past, they have worked together on films such as Haasil (2003) and Paan Singh Tomar (2012). If all goes well, Irrfan Khan might soon team up with director Tigmanshu Dhulia once again.

"We have discussed a subject. But it needs a lot of research," says Irrfan, adding that he "had a great time [working] with him" and that they keep thinking about how they "can work together" again. "I think Tigmanshu has found a subject. We were working on a script earlier as well. But that didn't develop the way we wanted it to. He has found a new subject now, and I love it. Let's see how the research goes," says Irrfan, adding, "I don't know why it happens, but I've been part of the initial films of a lot of directors, such as Asif Kapadia, Vishal Bhardwaj and Tigmanshu."

Another director, whom Irrfan "would do anything to work with", is Anurag Basu. "He is one of my favourite directors. I had a great time working with him. He is a great human being. I like him a lot. Even if he calls me at 2am, I will go running to him (laughs)," says Irrfan.

Ask him if the much-discussed sequel to Life In A... Metro (2007) is on track, and he says, "I am patiently waiting [for the sequel]. Let's see. I would love to act in it. I guess Anurag is also looking for a story," he says.
