Irrfan Khan to Play Lead in Bangladesh's No Bed of Roses


India, March 7 -- Irrfan Khan will play the lead in No Bed of Roses -- to be helmed by Bangladesh's acclaimed Mostofa Sarwar Farooki. To be produced by Kolkata's Eskay Movies and Bangladesh's Jazz Multimedia, No Bed of Roses will be bilingual, Bengali and English. The Bengali title will be Doob.

Khan's IK will co-produce the film, which will be the actor's second foray into production. His first was Ishaan Nair's Kaash -- a work about romantic relationships and heartbreaks that premiered at the Tokyo International Film Festival last year. It did not attract rave notices, though.

The plot of No Bed of Roses is not being revealed -- not as yet -- but we know that Bangladeshi actor Nusrat Imroz Tisha (known for her roles in Farooki's Third Person Singular Number, which was the country's 2011 Oscar submission in the foreign language category, and The Clay Bird, which was part of the Cannes Directors' Fortnight in 2002) will star opposite Khan.

The principal photography of No Bed of Roses will begin in the next few days, and the entire movie will be shot in the hill resorts of Bangladesh and North Bengal in a single schedule of 35 days. A part of the film will be set in Dhaka.

In a note, Farooqi said that No Bed of Roses would be his first attempt to narrate a story that would grip the entire family, while Khan explaining his reason for getting into the production of the movie averred that the director's debut work, Ant Story, impressed him like nothing else. Farooqi's style and approach and his method of unraveling the plot were impressive. "His selection of casts and the way they behave are something that touched me immensely. His works carry a strong humane angle, which is why his characters are multi layered." No Bed of Roses could be a valuable addition to world cinema.

Khan, who has been part of an array of terrific movies like Paan Singh Tomar, Qissa, The Lunchbox, D-Day, Talvar, Namesake, Haider, Jurassic World, The Amazing Spiderman and Life of Pi, has been saying that Indian actors and directors must work in Hollywood to get a feel of what international cinema is all about. …
