The official theatrical trailer of Irrfan Khan’s next ‘Blackmail’ is out.

The film directed by Abhinay Deo, in a nutshell, raises a question: ‘What will you do if you catch your wife cheating on you?’.

Scriptwriter Parveez Shaikh and director Deo have worked on a script that is set in an Indian metropolitan city with Khan’s character as the protagonist. The teaser of the film was released on Valentine’s Day and it immediately created a stir on the Internet with its quirkiness. The trailer of the film takes it to a level ahead. It starts with Khan realizing that his wife is cheating on him. But instead of reacting violently, Khan immediately comes up with the plan of Blackmailing his wife’s boyfriend.

‘Blackmail’ takes the case of infidelity and turns it on its head. In the past, there have been numerous cases where partners have reacted very violently when they have discovered that their significant other is cheating on them. Most recently Akshay Kumar’s ‘Rustom’ was based on the infamous Nanavati Case where naval officer K. M. Nanavati murdered his wife’s lover Prem Ahuja.

By the looks of it, ‘Blackmail’ has surely captured our attention and have got us hooked. With this film, Khan is reuniting with T-Series the makers of his highly acclaimed and box office hit film ‘Hindi Medium’ (2017).

The film is slated to release on 6th April 2018.
