Hindi Medium-actor Irrfan Khan dropped the first teaser of his upcoming film Blackmail on Valentine’s Day. And it’s nothing like you imagined. The film stars Pink fame Kirti Kulhari and is helmed by Abhinav Deo. It is a quirky comedy written by none other than Delhi Belly writer Abhinav Deo himself. Dropping the teaser on his Twitter account, Irrfan Khan wrote, “The teaser of my next film, a quirky comedy titled #Blackमेल. Directed by #AbhinayDeo. Produced by @tseries & RDP Motion Pictures. Trailer on Feb 22
In the teaser, we can see the 'Hindi Medium' star, who is half-naked, wearing only boxers, being chased by a few men. His face is covered with a shopping bag. It seems like he has something so very wrong that made the crowd run after his life in the alleys.
The title also has a hint of wordplay with Black and Mail written in two separate languages. One cannot decipher the hidden meaning behind it unless he watches the movie. Irrfan Khan’s face has not been revealed as he is shown running berserk with a paper bag on his face.
Directed by 'Delly Belly' director Abhinay Deo, the film also stars Divya Dutta, Arunoday Singh, Omi Vaidya, Anuja Sathe, Pradhuman Singh Mall and Gajraj Rao.
'Blackmail' is slated to release on April 6.
