I'd also like that B4 because 'Piku" such non commercial title. But, when I saw the title songs, then the movie, I love Piku vm.

new interview of irrfan
You said no to a lot of offers so you could say yes to Piku
Yes, I wanted to do this film because of my co-stars. I had never worked with Bachchan Saab and Deepika, and I said yes because of the director Shoojit. 

And Moushumi Chatterjee? 
(Laughs joyously). She was a dream to work with. We even got to play badminton together for a scene. 

What was it like shooting with Mr Bachchan for the first time? 
Bachchan Saab has his own method of doing a role. He likes to rehearse before approaching a character. I don't like to rehearse that much. But with Bachchan Saab I had to rehearse according to his needs. He is so enthusiastic about his character. The excitement rubs off on other actors. I enjoyed rehearsals this time. And he is there hands-on for a film. Even when he is not required to shoot he would be present on the sets. 

And Deepika Padukone? 
She was right there rehearsing with Bachchan Saab and me. She was amazingly dedicated. I had never met her before we started shooting for Piku. That helped us develop our characters. Because in the film we play two people who are strangers initially and then get to know one another gradually. It was a pleasant journey to know Deepika both on and off screen. 

Tabu, Natalie Portman, seem to be working with the most beautiful women? 
What can I say? I've no hand in it. I am blessed. Yes, as an actor I feel enthused when surrounded by beauty. Deepika and I both had something to contribute to the story. The fact that she is so beautiful added to my enthusiasm for my character. 

Why are you constantly doing roles that are existentially burdened? 
I choose roles from what I get. I usually get serious roles. But I am dying to do a comedy and a romance. InPiku I got to do both. But I'd now like to do them separately. 

Tell me about your other projects? 
I've competed Meghna Gulzar's Talwar which is written by Vishal Bhardwaj. I've also done a thriller calledMadaari directed by Nishikant Kamat. I've also said yes to Abhinay Deo's film. It's a comedy in the zone of Abhinay's Delhi Belly

It's a raunchy comedy? 
Yes, quirky comedy about city life and relationships I start this end of the year. I'd also like to do a musical. 

Are you producing any more films after the spectacular success of The Lunchbox? 
Yes I am producing Nishikant Kamat's Madaari and Mira Nair's nephew Ishan Nair's Kaash. I am not a part of the latter's cast.

This was totally unexpected  - Congratulations #teamPiku!
Universal praise for Deepika  Thumbs Up- she needs to let her work do the talking  - she does not need that lame PR team of hers.

I find Deepika and Irfans interaction offscreen to be really endearing. More from Irffan's POV...there seems to be a respect that he holds for Deepika...that says a lot about her work

Despite tough competition from #BombayVelvetThisFriday and #Gabbar .. #Piku is retaining 70% of its multiplex screens in second week #PIKU

Checked BMS..Piku has got good number screens.. and better advance than BV..but BV has many more screens-so not comparable at all...
