Mumbai: Actor Irrfan Khan reveals filmmaker Tigmanshu Dhulia had offered him to play the titular role in “Revolver Rani,” which later went to Kangana Ranaut.

The 50-year-old actor says he had almost joined the project but did not take up the offer due to “intimate scenes” in the film.

“I was offered the role of a woman in Tigmanshu Dhulia’s ‘Revolver Rani’. He had offered me Kangana Ranaut’s role when he was producing the film. I had made up my mind to do it. But there were some intimate scenes that I thought people will not enjoy,” Irrfan told PTI.

“I would love to play a woman on-screen. But I am not ok with intimate scenes as that might put them (audience) off,” he adds.

The crime-drama which released in 2014 was directed by Sai Kabir and featured Kangana and Vir Das in the lead roles.

In his upcoming film, “Hindi Medium” Irrfan’s plays a businessman who owns a saree shop in Delhi’s Chandni Chowk. A scene in the film required Irrfan’s character to drape a saree and he learnt the intricacies of draping to make his performance look perfect.

“It was a great experience. It was fun,” he adds. Also starring Pakistani actress Saba Qamar, “Hindi Medium” is slated to release on May 12.
