It’s not often when veteran star Amitabh Bachchan takes to his social media profile to appreciate a film. On Saturday, he took to Twitter to share his film watching experience while seeing Irrfan Khan’s Blackmail. 

The superstar called the film “delightful” watch with a “unique story”. He appreciated the film’s “screenplay, exemplary performances, great presentation and editing.”

This is his full post: 


The film Blackmail is a comedy directed by Abhinay Deo featuring actors Irrfan Khan, Kirti Kulhari, Divya Dutta, Arunoday Singh, Omi Vaidya, Anuja Sathe and others.

The makers of the film, Bhushan Kumar and Abhinay Deo hosted a special screening for Bachchan on behalf of Irrfan, who is currently unavailable owing to his health conditions. Irrfan Khan is currently in London, undergoing treatment for a neuroendocrine tumour. The Hindi Medium star announced last month of his rare disease and asked fans and followers to pray for him while understanding the difference between his disease and a brain cancer as most thought it had something to do with the brain (considering the name of the disease includes the word 'neuro').  Also Read: Irrfan Khan's tumour can be surgically removed, says doctor
