Interestingly, this is the first time that director Homi Adajania is collaborating with Irrfan and said he's looking forward to this journey.
"We've been wanting to collaborate for the longest time and I'd often dream of that day. Today was better than what I had ever dreamed of. Old school Irrfan doing what he does best - effortless and sublime," Homi was quoted saying.
