"Irrfan's got a great sex appeal and he triggers the sensitive side of women in an intellectual way. He's not for frivolous women, but for those with substance. Any woman who has some intellect will find Irrfan really attractive," Dhulia said in a statement.
In the film, Irrfan plays a gangster, a part which was essayed by Randeep Hooda in the original movie.
Dhulia, who directed Irrfan in "Paan Singh Tomar", believes the actor has stayed committed to his craft and not compromised by picking up films which have a commercial sense just for the heck of it.
