Actor Irrfan Khan was discussing the possibility of appearing in a film about pandemics, filmmaker Anand Gandhi has said. Irrfan died after a two-year battle with neuroendocrine tumour last week.
Gandhi had been developing a script based on women scientists, fighting a contagion. Titled Emergence, the film would have featured Irrfan, the filmmaker told Mumbai Mirror. He said, "Irrfan and I drove to Pune once and became friends over the years... We explored the possibility of his presence in Tumbbad before the final script and schedule changed things. He'd have been in Emergence too. I wish I had created something with him."
