Irrfan resumes 'Sahib Bibi...' shooting
Mumbai: Irrfan, who fell while shooting a polo scene for 'Sahib Bibi Aur Gangster Returns', is fine, the film's director Tigmanshu Dhulia says.
"Irrfan will be fine. He picks up fast. Besides he's halfway a polo player already. He is an expert horse rider. The rest will just follow," said Dhulia.
Meanwhile the actor SMS-ed the author saying he's fine and back to shooting.
In 'Sahib Bibi Aur Gangster Returns', Irrfan needs to be shown playing a game of polo. The sequence was put off for the last, since the actor needed to learn the sport from scratch.
The sequence was being shot in Delhi since Tuesday when the accident took place.
The role has the method actor more nervous than anything he has done so far, including the rigorous self-discipline that went in to playing the steeple-chase runner in Dhulia's 'Paan Singh Tomar'.
A source said: "He has never been more anxious. Irrfan has never played polo. He needs to look like a professional polo player on screen. And he didn't have that much time to take up the sport seriously."
Irrfan was sent to the Mahalaxmi Race Course in Mumbai to try to catch the game's nuances by practicing with professional players.
