Actor Irrfan is no longer, but he is still remembered for his work. The actor starred in the film Blackmail in 2018 before completing a two-year sabbatical after being diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumor. His son Babil has now shared a behind-the-scenes picture of the actor from the Blackmail sets.
Babil shared the picture on Instagram and wrote: “A sweet one for his fans. Bassu (@ mann012s puppy) and Baba, Blackmail, 2017. ”The picture shows Irrfan taking a break in his costume – a formal shirt and tie. He is seen with an adorable puppy sitting on his chest.
In the film, Irrfan plays a middle-class man who blackmailed his wife after catching her with her lover. The film starred Kirti Kulhari as his wife, Arunoday Singh as her lover, and Divya Dutta as the wife of his wife’s lover. The black comedy was directed by Abhinay Deo of Delhi Belly fame.
Irrfan had flown to London for treatment and was absent from the film’s promotional efforts, despite expanding his support for it. He had asked the makers to release the film on time. Abhinay told the Hindustan Times before it was released how Irrfan got out of the way for the film: “What he’s doing is absolutely inspiring and amazing. Not only did he detail what he was going through at that point, but also [talked about] how he deals with his illness. This clearly underscores its positivity and strength. And in my opinion, it’s a winner’s mindset, something we should learn from them. Irrfan shows us how to deal with it [unavoidable] Living conditions. “

When talking about why Irrfan was the right choice for Dev’s character, he had said, “Irrfan’s character (Dev) in Blackmail has the lowest number of lines – we needed someone who could deliver with just a few words [through his] Expression, but at the same time wouldn’t go overboard. There are very few actors in the country who can deliver such a multifaceted performance. Irrfan makes the character melt into itself and you don’t know where Irrfan ended and Dev started. “
Irrfan died on April 29th this year. He is survived by Mrs. Sutapa Sikdar and the sons Babil and Ayaan.
