Oscar winning actress Lupita Amondi Nyong’o is all praises for Irrfan Khan’s film ‘The Lunchbox’ and has termed it a perfect heartwarming love story.
The actress, who won Best Actress Oscar for her film ’12 Years A Slave’, posted on Twitter after watching ‘The Lunchbox’. “Just saw the movie The Lunchbox: the perfect heartwarming love story period, but especially on a cold and rainy day …,” tweeted Lupita.
‘The Lunchbox’, a romantic film, was written and directed by Ritesh Batra. It featured Irrfan Khan, Nimrat Kaur and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in lead roles.
The film was screened at International Critics’ Week at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, and later won the Critics Week Viewers Choice Award also known as Grand Rail d’Or. It was also shown at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.
Acknowledging Lupita’s tweet, lead actor of the film Irrfan Khan thanked her and said: “Thanks !!! Will cross each other’s path some day.”
After ‘The Lunchbox’, Irrfan has been bombarded with a lot of Hollywood and Bollywood film offers.
Irrfan Khan recently confirmed that he will be seen in Steven Spielberg’s ‘Jurassic Park 4′. “Yes I’ve been offered Jurassic Park 4. But at the moment I cannot reveal any more details,” said Irrfan.
Irrfan is also doing a film with Tigmanshu Dhulia and the shooting schedules might clash with ‘Jurassic Park’. Apart from Tigmanshu’s, Irrfan is also involved in Shoojit Sircar’s ‘Piku.’
Irrfan Khan was last seen in ‘Gunday’ with Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra.
