“Irrfan has shown a lot of serious interest in the film. The whole film rests on Manto. It is an amazing role for any actor. Infact when I spoke to Irrfan he said for this kind of role any actor from the grave would also come out and do it. He is a very sensitive actor. He himself has read a lot of Manto. Manto speaks to him at a personal level just as it does to me. So I am hoping that we will be able to work together,” Nandita told PTI on the sidelines of NFDC’s Film Bazaar. Source
