In Bollywood, Irrfan Khan is well known for his quirky movies. Now, the actor is returning to the screen with yet another plot-bending movie, Blackmail.
The first teaser of Irrfan Khan-Kirti Kulhari-starrer Blackmail was unveiled Wednesday afternoon. The teaser starts with Irrfan panting heavily while running on the streets. He was seen bare-chested wearing just a pair of shorts, and with a paper bag veiling his face with two slits for his eyes.
But why was this perfect middle class married man running bare-chested on the streets? The new trailer solved this mystery for us!
The Blackmail trailer reveals the plot to the audience. It starts with the actor sitting in a bar with a man narrating the story. Irrfan Khan’s character returned home early one day to surprise his wife, and caught her cheating. And that’s where all the adventures begin!
The Hindi Medium star is back to playing yet another common man, Dev. In the two and a half minute trailer, Dev described his three options: he could either kill the other lover, kill his wife or resort to the third option, blackmail the lover. Instead of becoming depressed or violent, Dev decides to take revenge on his wife’s boyfriend.
The plot twists when Dev asks for a ransom of a lakh rupees and ends up paying most of it himself! Soon, others start finding out about his blackmailing and jumps in the game to cash out on the adventure. The game turns fierce as we see guns, knives and bloodshed by the end of the trailer. Who wins the game? We’ll get to know only when Blackmail hits the screens.
Produced by T-Series’ Bhushan Kumar and RDP Motion Pictures’ Deo, Blackmail is slated to release on April 6.
The Irrfan Khan and T-series duo was responsible for the beloved Hindi Medium. Blackmail is being directed by Delhi Belly fame Abhinay Deo and written by Parvez Sheikh. Apart from Irrfan, the film also stars Kirti Kulhari, Arunoday Singh, Divya Dutta and Omi Vaidya. Also, the film has brought together singers Baadshah, Guru Randhawa, Amit Trivedi and rapper Divine for its music album.
