The makers of Blackmail had held a special screening for Amitabh Bachchan after Irrfan wished to show the film to his Piku co-star. As Irrfan is not in the country, Bhushan Kumar and Abhinay Deo hosted a special screening for Amitabh.Irrfan was recently diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumour and is out of the country for his treatment. Abhinay Deo had met Irrfan and said that the actor wanted the film to release as per schedule, on April 6. “The promotions, songs are on and he has seen it all and he is very happy the way things are going,” said Abhinay.
Since Irrfan is unavailable for work right now, his other films which were supposed to begin shooting this year, have been put on hold. Irrfan was supposed to shoot for Vishal Bharadwaj’s film, which would make it the second time that Deepika Padukone and the Hindi Medium star worked together. After Irrfan’s illness was made public, Vishal had announced that the team had decided to schedule their shoot after Irrfan had recovered.
