Irrfan Khan and Parvathy were present at Cinepolis Andheri to engage with fans and find out their response to the film ‘Qarib Qarib Singlle’ on Friday, during media interaction Irrfan said Hindi cinemas is losing its audience to Hollywood and Regional cinema.

Irrfan when asked about the development of Hindi cinema and its set back in the beginning of the year said, “I think Hindi cinema has already felt the shock of Hollywood and regional cinema. At the rate which Hollywood and regional cinema is growing in our country, Hindi cinema is soon going to lose its audience to both. Plus now there are more options available, like Netflix. We will have to make films that will bring back the audience.”

Irrfan Khan when asked by a fan talked about the characteristics he loves of Yogi, “There are some characteristics that I really love about Yogi, he is vulnerable sensitive and if time comes to it he will also be ready for a fight. And especially the way he treats women as an equal. He would never create an atmosphere that feeds the thoughts of gender inequality.”

The film directed by Tanuja Chandra is about two protagonists Yogi and Parvathy who have opposite personalities and sensibilities, that meet via an online dating app. This encounter turns into much more when the two travel to Rishikesh together.

The ‘Qarib Qarib Singlle’ released on 10th November 2017.
