Irrfan has mostly played serious and intense roles on-screen, but the 48-year-old who accompanied his co-star Deepika Padukone and director Shoojit Sircar during a promotional event of “Piku” in New Delhi on Monday said he would love to show more of his romantic as well as comic side in films.
“I’m a shy guy. I’ve a lot of dreams. I’ve lots of issues. I see life as a very transient thing. I’m very fascinated with death. I want to see my death with all my consciousness, which I think is not possible,” said Irrfan.
“But there are certain things where I find life beautiful. I find this existence as magic like a ‘chamatkar’. I have sense of wonder which keeps me bust with so many things, and I’ve love quotient in me. I would love to show my romantic side on-screen,” he added.
“Piku” explores the beautiful relationship of a father (played by megastar Amitabh Bachchan), who deals with the problem of constipation, and a daughter (Deepika Padukone). Irrfan plays a mediator of sorts between the two. The film, which also stars Moushumi Chatterjee, Raghuvir Yadav and Jishu Sengupta among others, will release on Friday. (IANS)
