When we clarified the same from Rimi, the straight forward actress, without batting an eyelid, accepted that she had indeed made such a statement. She told us, "Actually most muti-starrers don't have much role for actresses. That is why I am not very keen on them." So, why did she decide to do THANK YOU? And Rimi replied, "I really like Irrfan Khan, both as an actor and as a person and that's why I wanted to act with him. Another reason is that I like the way Anees Bazmee makes his films and that's why I chose to do THANK YOU." About the duration of her shoot she said, "I shot for about a month. But I will not tell you about my role. It's a surprise."
Well, indeed her role would definitely be a pleasant surprise for all her fans who are really waiting for a long time to see their favourite actress back in action with THANK YOU.
