Ram Gopal Varma clarifies Irrfan Khan was never considered for Manoj Bajpayee’s role in ‘Daud’
Recently, an old video interview of Manoj Bajpayee was doing the rounds on social media where he revealed that he was auditioning for a role in Daud with Irrfan Khan and others in the race. However, Ram Gopal Varma has now clarified that Irrfan was never considered for that role.
Taking to his Twitter handle, the filmmaker revealed that he never registered Irrfan Khan for the role and he only saw the late actor much later on a set.
He wrote, ‘Just to set the record straight I was meeting quite a few actors at that time and Manoj caught my eye because of Bandit Queen ..I never registered Irrfan and I consciously remembered seeing him only much later when he came to the set of some other shoot.’
