    17th August 2012

    Filmmaker Tigmanshu Dhulia took the nation by storm when his directorial film 'Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster' became the surprise hit of the year 2011.

    The film that talked about love, erotica, betrayal and relationships had considerable amount of love making scenes in it. Hence, when the sequel of the film which is now being made with Irrfan Khan stepping in this time, one would expect the intimacy in the film to remain intact. 

    Irrfan, however, being the actor of his own league recently barred Tigmanshu from including erotic love making scenes in the sequel. According to him when the story is good, one can get away without any skin show or love making scenes. And it was on Irrfan's insistence that Tigmanshu agreed to tone down the intimacy in the film. 

    "I had full faith in the subject of 'Saheb Biwi Gangster Returns'. Also, I am in line with the makers' conviction vis-a-vis treatment of the film," said Irrfan.

    Nonetheless, there are love-making scenes between protagonist Irrfan and his leading ladies which have been shot according to his comfort level. 

    "There are some romantic scenes between Irrfan and the two lead actresses Mahie Gill and Soha Ali Khan. And they have been shot aesthetically," revealed Tigmanshu.
