‘No one was willing to fund my research’

undefined

We’ve been told that this film was ready to be released last year, so have you made any changes to the film since?
Yes, that’s true. But we wanted to package it better to be sent out to some of the big film festivals. And then I was busy with ‘Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster’ so I didn’t mind that the film’s release was pushed to this year. In this waiting period, I have changed the background score completely but no other major changes have been made to the film.

What was your brief to Irrfan for playing this epic lead character?
When Irrfan performs, he latches on to one point about the character. In this case, I just told him that Paan Singh is a family-oriented man and that he does everything for pride. Irrfan completely absorbed this fact and everything he did reflected this underlying brief about the character.
