As previously reported by BizAsiaLive.com, Irrfan Khan will be co-producing the English-Bengali bilingual ‘No Bed of Roses’. It is now being heard that Khan will essay the role of writer Humayun Ahmed in the film, although the film’s director is hesitant to confirm this.
A source told Mumbai Mirror, “Irrfan plays a filmmaker in the film and his character too gets married a second time to his daughter’s friend. It is inspired by Humayun Ahmed but the makers have fictionalised it and christened him Javed Hasan to avoid controversies.”
Director Mostofa Farooki stated, “Humayun Ahmed is a celebrated writer and I am a big fan. However, people will have to go to the theatre and watch the film to find out if Irrfan’s character is inspired by him. All I can say is as a filmmaker I take inspiration from life around me.”
Irrfan Khan shot for the film earlier this year.
