Irrfan Khan recently praised Kangana Ranaut at the screening of Marathi blockbuster Sairat and said that Kangana Ranaut is a legendary actress.
Not so long ago, Irrfan Khan had sarcastically remarked that Kangana Ranaut had gone out of reach. "Kangana has gone so out of reach that I will work with her only if I wish to be a heroine. So, if a script comes along wherein she plays the hero and I the heroine, I will do it.''
To which Kangana Ranaut had said, "Irrfan always teases me. He had once told me two swords could never stay in the same sheath. I couldn't understand it. But I would like to work with Irrfan sir regardless of whatever role is offered to me."
When a leading news agency, asked Irrfan Khan that what he would like to say to Kangana's comments, he said, "What will I do then? There has to be an equal role as then there will be fun. If hers is a small role then there will be no fun. She would have said it for me about the small role."
When told that Kangana called him a legendary actor, he said, "She is also legendary (actress) it's her baddappan (magnanimity)."
