When talented actor Irrfan Khan was given a call by director Priyadarshan to act in Shah Rukh Khan's home banner project, BILLU BARBER, the ace actor was prepared for a supporting role. In fact, Irrfan clearly remembers being pleasantly surprised to hear that it was SRK who was to play an extended cameo in the film and that he was the chosen one to play the main lead. Up till now, the films produced by Red Chillies Entertainment, starred the super star himself in the main lead and so Irrfan was looking forward to work with the Baadshah of Bollywood in a character role.

However, Shah Rukh and Priyadarshan had other plans and as it turned out, BILLU BARBER is the first mainstream commercial film, produced by a big banner, that will have Irrfan Khan enacting the title role, that of the lead protagonist.

Needless to add that Irrfan is very happy and rubbishes rumours that BILLU BARBER is an out-an-out SRK film. May be these rumours had stemmed from the fact that all the promos initially showcased SRK and his item numbers with the top actress of Bollywood. But that was a strategic promotional campaign, so as to highlight the film and popularize the album. The plan has already worked with the music hitting the charts and the film carrying quite a buzz. And we are supremely confident that the charisma of Bollywood's global super star will succeed in bringing in the audience into the theatres, and the Priyan-Irrfan-SRK combo will do the rest!
