Ram Gopal Varma won't admit it. But Irrfan Khan lets it out that Ramu's recently-announced terror film Agyaat was inspired by the special effects Ramu saw on the sets of Jennifer Lynch Hissss.
Irrfan Khan can't wait to be devoured by Mallika Sherawat. "She plays a man-eating creature. She swallows men in the film. And I'm just dying to be swallowed her. Watching her devour men is a very very sensuous process. Unfortunately, I don't get eaten by her. I'm the investigative officer trying to find out who's devouring all these human beings."
Chuckles Irrfan, "I'm working in Hissss with two very different and interesting kind of women, Mallika Sherawat and Jennifer Lynch. Hissss would've been like any other snake woman story. But the way Jennifer has treated the story has taken the film to another level. The special effects will shock our audiences. I think Ramu is inspired to make his next film (Agyaat) by Jennifer's film. High-time we got special effects guys from abroad to do the needful."
Irrfan was in Philadelphia shooting for New York and then in Cape Town for Sanjay Gupta's Acid Factory. "I love the US. And I loved working with Kabir Khan. He's a very chilled out guy. Kabir's unit was as relaxed. I felt as relaxed as I do while working in a Mira Nair film abroad."
Irrfan's next release Dil Kabaddi offers him a change of image. "I'm not going to pretend. Dil Kabaddi is a film strictly for adults. And we shouldn't shy away from saying this. It's about dishonesty in man-woman relationships. I call it dishonesty by the standards set by civil society. Sometimes you are not satisfied in one relationship and keep looking for sexual and emotional satisfaction elsewhere. I like playing this promiscuous character. "I play a man who's very transparent about his sexual desires.
