Mumbai: “Paan Singh Tomar” actor Irrfan Khan doesn’t have any issues with getting sidelined because of his “Jazbaa” co-star Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as he feels it’s “beautiful”.
About Aishwarya’s ‘comeback’, Irrfan said: “I don’t consider this is a comeback since I never felt that she ever went anywhere. There is nothing wrong with getting sidelined, in fact it would feel good. It depends on the person because of which you get sidelined. Getting sidelined due to Aishwarya is a beautiful thing,”.
He was interacting with media at the sidelines of the trailer launch of the film directed by Sanjay Gupta.
Irrfan is now working with another member from the Bachchan family after working magic in the successful “Piku” with Amitabh Bachchan. He was always eager to work with Aishwarya but his respect for her has got further enhanced during the course of the shooting.
“One of the major reasons to do the film was Aishwarya. I was looking forward to getting to know her and watching her style of working closely. Nothing could be more exhilarating than seeing a mother taking care of her child and simultaneously working. It was yesterday that we completed the shooting of the film and it was a beautiful day and a great experience. It’s the kind of memory that I will cherish.”
Irrfan is on a roll currently with the success of “Piku” and the super-success of English film, “Jurassic World”. “Jazbaa” is gearing up for release on October 9.
