One story that goes around claims Manoj Bajpayee and Irrfan Khan were both being considered for the role of Paresh Rawal’s henchman in Ram Gopal Varma’s 1997 dud Daud. Manoj finally got the role.
According to Manoj, Ramu agreed to meet Manoj for a minor role in Daud. But when he reached for the reunion, Irrfan and actor Vineet Kumar were already there for the same role. Manoj claims to have managed to distance the role of his two competitors.
However, Ramu has a different take on what really happened. “No, Irrfan was never considered for Daud. I didn’t even know him when Daud was in progress. I had seen Manoj in Shekhar Kapoor’s Bandit queen and offered him the role in Daud. “
When did Ramu know Irrfan? “We were introduced long after Daud. We have never worked together. I do not know why! It’s just one of those things that never happened. I regret it now. We would have created special magic together. I think he was an actor who could do anything.
Hansal Mehta who shares his birthday with the anniversary of Irrfan’s death also regrets not having worked with Irrfan. “I will always share this date with him for the rest of my life. Every year on my birthday, I will remember his abrupt and unforgivable departure. We have never worked together but have shared a very warm camaraderie over the years. I shared many drunken nights with him talking about life and a lot of other shit.
