Irrfan-Mira Nair to team up for dance film?

The two share a mutual dmiration for ever since they created magic in The Namesake in 2006.
Thereafter Nair did a short film called Kosher Vegetarian with Irrfan and Natalie Portman
in the lead.

Nair was keen that Irrfan play the title role in her last film The Reluctant Fundamentalist.
However, Irrfan was not keen on playing a terrorist.

Nair, we learn, has zeroed in on Irrfan to play the Bengali bhadralok again in The Bengali

Irrfan had played a Bengali to great impact in The Namesake as well. However, Mira needs to check out Irrfan's dancing skills before she takes the final call. This is where ad filmmaker Piyush Pandey comes in.

Irrfan said: ‘Mira wants to see if I can dance or not. In my latest ad for Piyush Pandey, I am seen
dancing. I am sending that ad to Mira to evaluate my dancing skills.’
