Abhinay Deo said, “It’s a different type of film, we have tried doing something new even in a comedy film. We hope the audience enjoys watching the film as much we loved making it. Blackmail is Irrfan’s film, our film, get ready for an unusual ride.”
About the early response to the film, Abhinay said, “We are getting an incredible response to the film currently, however, audience’s response matters the most. Friends will always say good but the ultimate decision would be of the audience when the film would release on 6th, the audience would give the final verdict and that matters the most to me.”
Arunoday Singh shared, “I’m very very excited about the film’s release.” Talking about Irrfan he said, “I’m missing Irrfan a lot, all this wouldn’t have been possible without him.”
Actress Kirti Kulhari shared, “I’m super duper excited. Blackmail is a superbly funny and quirky film.” Talking about Irrfan Kirti shared, “We have been missing Irrfan a lot, D-day is coming closer and we really wish he was with us. Everyone has been liking the film. A lot of people think I’ve been very bold in making a choice like Blackmail, the kind of character I’m playing, that for me is an interesting compliment”.
Anuja Sathe said, “I come from a very strong television background, even Irrfan started off with Chandrakanta, that has been a very strong connecting point between us, and we had very nice and constructive conversations basis that. I play a very twisted character and hence I’ve been receiving comments like ‘We got very angry on you and loved what happened with you in the film’, I think that’s a big compliment”.
The cast came together for a special screening to enjoy the film before it hits the screen this Friday. Early reviews have already started coming in and the quirky comedy is hailed for its quirky storyline and brilliant performances. After receiving a thumbs up from industry veterans like Amitabh Bachchan and Anil Kapoor amongst others, Blackmail is receiving appreciation from all quarters even before its release.
