Actor Irrfan Khan’s film Dubai Return is all set to release on YouTube. The film which was completed 15 years ago in 2005 will get a digital release on Saturday, July 3.
Babil, son of late actor Irrfan Khan, took to his Instagram page Friday evening to announce the news. Sharing the poster of the film he wrote, “Releasing tomorrow on YouTube!”
Directed by Aditya Basu Bhattacharya, Dubai Return stars Irrfan Khan as a hitman. It also features Razak Khan and Divya Dutta in important roles. The movie had its world premiere at New York Indian Film Festival. It will now be released on Bandra Film Festival’s YouTube channel.
The film was also showcased at the International Film Festival of India in 2005, and was all set for a theatrical release which was cancelled due to unspecified reasons. “I would love to release the film; it’s my great desire to do so. One has been trying to release it over the years. There were technical and legal reasons why we could not release the film at the time, and those reasons still hold. One is trying to see how one can get around these issues,” producer Manya Patil Seth was quoted saying.
Irrfan who lost his two-year-long long battle with neuroendocrine tumour on April 29, 2020 was last seen in Homi Adajania’s Angrezi Medium. He has few other unreleased movies, including Anup Singh’s Songs of the Scorpions.
