New Delhi: With some of the best international projects to his credit, Irrfan has never had a dearth of meaty roles and the actor says he will continue to chase good stories around the globe.
The actor has just finished a Bangladeshi film, an European drama while he awaits the release of his Bollywood project "Madaari" and Hollywood drama "Inferno" with Tom Hanks.
"I want to do films everywhere. I am not bound by any place. I can go anywhere to do an interesting film. I just finished shooting a Bangladeshi film and then I am involved with an European film 'The Songs of Scorpians'. I am doing films everywhere," Irrfan told PTI.
In Bollywood, the 49-year-old actor has reunited with his "Mumbai Meri Jaan" director Nishikant Kamat for their upcoming film "Madaari", where his wife Sutupa Sikdar is also one of the producers.
Irrfan developed the story and while looking for a director they zeroed on Kamat, who has established himself as a bankable filmmaker thanks to the success of "Force" and "Drishyam".
"He was still making niche films during 'Mumbai Meri Jaan'. But then he changed his gear and made 'Force', 'Drishyam and 'Lai Bhaari' and now he has made 'Madaari'. This film has a story that will suit the masses.
"We developed the script and we were looking for a director who would do justice to it. We went to Nishikant and he loved the story. This time we brought in the director."
"Madaari", slated to release on July 15, is about the power of common man.
"It is one man's story but through the film we are trying to tell the story of the people in this country, who are used by the system without ever realizing the power they have. It's the journey of a realization of this power.
