Blackmail’ a brilliant screenplay: Big B

“Saw a delightful film today ‘Blackmail’. Brilliant screenplay, unique story, exemplary performances and great presentation and editing. Actors excel from Irrfan Khan to some fresh new faces. So happy to see such creativity,” Big B tweeted late on Saturday.

The film depicts life of a middle-aged married-man stuck in a full day-time job and unexciting life but things turn after he finds that his wife is having an extramarital affair.

In March, Irrfan revealed that he is facing a rare disease neuro-endocrine tumour, for which he is getting treated abroad.

Sonakshi Sinha’s prank story

“During the shoot of ‘Son of Sardaar’ in Patiala, while having dinner with the whole crew, Ajay sir came to me with a bowl full of gajar ka halwa,” Sonakshi said.

“He kept asking me to try it because it was so special and tasty. Even though I don’t really eat gajar ka halwa, I still took a spoonful of it as he was really persistent. Little did I know that it wasn’t halwa, but, a bowl full of chili paste. I had smoke coming out of my ears and water running out of my eyes. It was one of the most teekha pranks that anyone has ever played on me,” she added.
