Promotions often bring out a worst kept secret in the open. Many a times, actors decide to stay off the film during this time if they aren’t happy with the film. Saif Ali Khan and Bipasha Basu did so with Humshakals. But Irrfan Khan seems to have a real reason to stay away from Haider’s promotions.
Irrfan is kept out of Haider publicity from the begining. All the publicty matter that goes out from the producers’ office has no mention of Irrfan. The actor, who will be seen in a guest appearance in Haider, has requested Vishal Bharadwaj that his presence must not be used in Haider promotion. And Vishal Bhardwaj is perfectly okay with the arrangement.
Earlier, Irrfan had an unpleasant experience with the makers of the thriller Xpose. Further his friend adds, “He did a guest appearance in Xpose. The makers had promised to keep his name and face out of the publicity. Irrfan was shocked to see he was featured prominently in the publicity.” On this Irrfan says, “I have a guest appearance in Haider. I did it because I love Vishal’s work. And I wanted to be part of another Shakespearean adaptation by Vishal after Maqbool.”
