Irrfan Khan may have left for his heavenly abode, but he is still managing to inspire people with his words of wisdom. The latest example of the same was seen at the trailer launch of Rajkummar Rao and Nushrratt Bharuccha starrer ‘Chhalaang’. Writer Luv Ranjan revealed this interesting story about the idea behind writing ‘Chhalaang’, and he credited the germ to Irrfan Khan.
Luv Ranjan narrated an incident when long back he was talking to Irrfan Khan about some project and he had told him that in India we don’t have enough films made on children which even adults can sit and watch together. That idea stuck with Luv and when he kept pondering over the same, he decided to write the story, which slowly and steadily took the shape of ‘Chhalaang’.
Even the concept behind having a story about a PT teacher from school is quite novel as in Bollywood we have hardly ever seen a story whose lead character is a school PT teacher. Rajkummar Rao plays that in the movie and so does the second lead, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub.
The film, which was previously set to hit theatres is now going to be released on OTT platform Amazon Prime on November 13. Will the festivities of Diwali help the film better its prospects? Only time will tell. Stay hooked onto Bollywood Bubble for more such updates about the movie.
