"It is a cult film. The film is much more relevant even today than that time. You can watch it even after 50 years. It will always be relevant because our society will always be corrupt," Irrfan told IANS.
"It talks about things that are much more relevant today like politics and the way people are manipulated. People relate to the humour in this film. My kids are fans of the film. My kids are after me that I should do part two. They don't want me to lose the chance," he said.
A sequel to Kundan Shah's cult classic will soon go on the floors and the part two will start exactly where the previous one had ended.
Both Naseer and Irrfan will be seen in double roles in the sequel to be directed by Shah himself.
Irrfan said: "I am also very excited because of the director, the subject and Naseer sir. It would be fun... I still need to hear the second draft... we are still about to finalize certain things."
