Irrfan is Shoojit Sircar’s ‘superstar’

Mumbai: Shoojit Sircar found Irrfan Khan “terrific” in Meghna Gulzar’s “Talvar”. The filmmaker says that he is a “superstar” and calls him “one of the best actor” in the entertainment industry.

Irrfan, who was last seen onscreen in “Jazbaa” alongside Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, played the role of CBI officer Arun Kumar in “Talvar”, which was based on the 2008 murder of 14-year-old Aarushi Talwar and her family’s domestic servant Hemraj.

Irrfan, who worked with Sircar in comedy-drama film “Piku”, took to Twitter on Friday to share a quote of Sircar.

“@ShoojitSircar: #Talvar ..and @irrfan_k you r just terrific..Undoubtedly you are one of the best actor we have..And you are my superstar too,” he tweeted.

Irrfan will also be seen in Hollywood film “Inferno” alongside Tom Hanks.

Directed by Ron Howard, the thriller is set to release on October 14 next year.
