Homi posted a heart-warming picture with the 52-year-old actor who is seen resting on his director`s shoulder.
"Irrfan Khan, you are incredible ... and you`re a decent actor as well. I love you more than I know how to say," Homi wrote on Instagram. He also added how badly he wanted to make this film and how the journey turned out to be a roller coaster for him.
"I wanted to do this film knowing it would be against the odds. I wanted to do it for all the wrong reasons to make a film but they just seemed so right and still do. It`s been an emotional roller coaster more than anything else and I know how hard it`s been for everyone," He added.
The post further read, "Thank you to my crew and cast for not letting the odds stack up against us. I truly believe that our collective positivity and celebration of life allowed us this. Regardless of this film`s fate, it`s shown me a lighter way of being and I`ll always cherish this."
Homi`s feelings got thumbs up from other Bollywood celebrities including actor Arjun Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, Aditi Rao Hydari, Patralekha, and filmmaker Zoya Akhtar who showered their love in the comments section.Irrfan`s upcoming release marks his comeback to the celluloid world, post a brief break he took while seeking treatment for a neuroendocrine tumour in London.
The film, which also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan, Radhika Madan, went on floors in Udaipur on April 5. Kareena will play a cop in the film while Radhika will play Irrfan`s daughter who, reportedly, wishes to pursue higher studies in the UK. The film also stars Dimple Kapadia.
