Irrfan all set to collaborate with AIB for “The Ministry” for Amazon Prime
Amongst other projects, Irrfan has recently finished shooting his next Hollywood film Puzzle, directed by Marc Turtletaub and will soon leave for the World Premiere of his international project, Song Of The Scorpion at the Locarno International Film Festival. Soon after he will begin shooting for his next untitled project which is said to be produced by Ronnie Screwvala.
Speaking about the show, Irrfan said “I am looking forward to a yet another fun collaboration with AIB, they always have content that makes me excited to work with them. It would be a great experience to be working on the show”.
Vijay Subramaniam, Director, Content, Amazon Prime Video India, said, “Our comedy offering has been widely appreciated by the audience and we are proud to say that we are only getting started. After a phenomenal response to our licensed comedy shows, we are excited to launch our very own Amazon Original in the comedy space. We are further strengthening our offering by collaborating with the best content creators of the genre and roping in one of the most versatile Indian actors with massive global appeal.”
Gursimran Khamba from AIB said “Irrfan told us that he wanted to be part of this show when he first heard about it. But because of certain complications it didn’t work out. Then one night I met him at a party where he took me aside, stared into my eyes and said “I want this”. And we all know how hard it is to resist Irrfan’s eyes.”
The show titled ‘The Ministry’ will begin shooting early next year and is bound to be a treat for the digital audience of India.
