BOLLYWOOD: Karwaan producer Priti Rathi Gupta says actor Irrfan Khan is promoting the film even while undergoing treatment in London for a neuroendocrine tumour.
“I know he is going through a journey and we are missing him around, we are missing his physical presence. But in the digital era, we all can be involved in things on social media,” Gupta said. “That is exactly what he is doing by promoting the film on social media. So I do not think his absence from the promotional activity will affect the film in anyway.”
Khan is known not only in Bollywood but also in the international film circuit for having worked in films such as The Namesake, A Mighty Heart, Slumdog Millionaire, The Amazing Spider-Man and Life of Pi.
“I know for a fact that he has his loyal fans across the world and everyone is looking forward to watching the film. We were more than glad to know that he agreed to do the film in the beginning. He has done a fantastic job as always,” Gupta added.
The producer, who also backed the film Waiting with her banner Ishka Films alongside Drishyam Films, said she nurtured the idea of making Karwaan for a long time.
