After LIFE IN A...METRO, Irrfan Khan would be seen performing a light hearted role once again in SUNDAY. While in Anurag Basu's film, Irrfan's character was such that even his deadpan humor raised quite a few chuckles, the actor with a rare brilliance lets his hair down completely in SUNDAY, promises Rohit Shetty, film's director.

'You would see Irrfan the way he is, and isn't that good enough to be assured quite a few laughs', counter questions Rohit when asked about Irrfan's comic role in the film.

'Yet again, he has acted the way only he can; he is simply superb. In the role of a struggling actor who never got a chance to make it big in the film industry, he has got the pathos of the character out quite well. The humorous part here is that instead of feeling empathy for the character, you laugh along with his antics.'

Promos indicate that Irrfan has also done spoofs on Himesh Reshammiya and the likes in the film. Is that true? 'Watch the film and tell me. I am not gonna say anything right now', says Rohit with a wink, 'I can assure you though that you won't find a single dull moment in the film. Isme action bhi hai, comedy bhi hai, romance bhi or drama bhi - yup, it all sounds clichéd but then the film is all about that - an out and out entertainer!'

After SUNDAY, Irrfan would be seen in at least two more comic outings in near future - KRAZZY 4 and DUBAI RETURN. SANKAT CITY, an Anubhav Sinha production with a quirky feel to it, would be another of his releases this year.

With the release of these three films, Irrfan would be through with the films which he signed before or around the release of his much acclaimed THE NAMESAKE. Currently, he is choosing his roles after much consideration and has rumoredly also raised his price to touch the 8 digit figure. His Hollywood releases A MIGHTY HEART and DARJEELING LIMITED have given a further impetus to his career which has made him a hot property across both mainstream and offbeat cinema.
