Irrfan Khan has not only become a name to reckon with in the Hindi film industry, but is also sought after by filmmakers in the West, thanks to his ability of portraying diverse roles on screen effortlessly. After the successful and critically acclaimed Piku, the actor will now be seen in Nishikant Kamat’s Madaari as a vigilante.
In a recent interview, Irrfan spoke about his motive behind taking up Madaari, “To raise questions. The intention was also to ask questions, such as ‘where would a common man go when something goes wrong, even though there are various departments?’ Our judiciary (In India) is so overloaded. There are many instances of our sticking to the laws that were made decades ago. As a country, we have to ask questions collectively to bring change. Sometimes, you have a story that you wish to reflect on through cinema although you are not an activist.”
