If you had asked me a few weeks ago what sort of film Mira Nair and Irrfan Khan would collaborate on next, a dance comedy-drama would have been been my last guess.
According to India TV News, though, the acclaimed director and actor are rumored to be in talks for just that. If it pans out, the film, The Bengali Detective, will be about a detective in Kolkata, played by Khan, who wants to learn dancing. One big question that remains is Khan’s dancing skills.
“Mira wants to see if I can dance or not,” Khan said. “In my latest ad for Piyush Pandey, I am seen dancing. I am sending that ad to Mira to evaluate my dancing skills.”
