Just like 2017, National Award winning actor Irrfan Khan is going to have a super busy 2018. The actor, who recently walked away with the Filmfare Best Actor Award for his remarkable performance in the Saket Chaudhary directed comedy-drama ‘Hindi Medium’ (2016), has a handful of films lined up for release in the year that has just begun.
Irrfan will kick off 2018 with the release of the film, ‘BlackMail’. The release date of the dark comedy film was announced a while ago by noted trade analyst Taran Adarsh on his Twitter handle. Directed by Abhinay Deo, ‘BlackMail’ will arrive in cinemas on 6th April 2018. Deo is known for his black comedy film, ‘Delhi Belly’ (2011) and action thriller ‘Force 2’ (2016).
‘BlackMail’, which was previously titled ‘Raita’, went on floors last year and has been shot entirely in Mumbai. The movie follows the story of a man stuck in a humdrum nine-to-five job. However, things change rapidly as soon as he discovers that his wife is having an affair. What happens next forms the crux of the story.
Bankrolled by T-Series and RDP Motion Pictures, ‘BlackMail’ also stars Kirti Kulhari, Divya Dutta, Omi Vaidya and Arunoday Singh in key roles.
Besides ‘BlackMail’, Irrfan Khan will also be seen in films like ‘Puzzle’ and ‘Karwan’ in 2018. A sequel to his award-winning film ‘Hindi Medium’ is also on the cards.
