In the big bad world of entertainment, it isn’t beyond imagination that the makers of Blackmail would use their lead, Irrfan’s present battle with an undisclosed medical condition, to the film’s advantage. But thankfully the crew and the producers did no such thing. Even if it means that they will now have to promote the film without their only A-lister. Audi II of PVR Juhu in Mumbai was abuzz with entertainment journalists, both seasoned and cubs, at the song launch of the film on Friday afternoon.However, we can assure you that none were interested in Irrfan’s very impressive collaboration with Amit Trivedi and Divine. All senses were aimed at information about the star's current situation.
Another appeal to the media to respect Irrfan and his family’s privacy. October director and Irfan’s good friend Shoojit Sircar has said the same.
Soon after the song launch though, Irrfan released this statement, clearing all doubts and speculations about his current medical situation.
We wish the star a speedy recovery
