I am ok playing a heroine in a Kangana Ranaut film: Irrfan

Actor Irrfan today said he would not mind playing a ‘heroine’ in a film with the National Award-winning actress Kangana Ranaut.

There were reports that Irrfan, 49, and Kangana, 29, would come together for director Sai Kabir’s next “Divine Lovers”. Kangana left the movie in December 2015, citing date issues. Now, Zareen Khan has replaced the “Queen” actress.

“I don’t know if I would be able to do ‘Divine Lovers’ or not as it comes and goes. Now, Kangana is out of reach. I am ok playing a heroine in a film, where Kangana would be the hero,” Irrfan told reporters at the trailer launch of “Madaari” here.

“Divine Lovers” revolves round the lower middle-class section of society and is set in the heartland of India. The film is an adventure comedy, whose shoot starts in September.
