Shoojit Sircar collaborates with Irrfan Khan's son Babil for a secret project

Mumbai: Filmmaker Shoojit Sircar has collaborated with late actor Irrfan Khan's son Babil for a project, the makers announced on Saturday.

Khan, who passed away last year in April, shared an equation beyond that of an actor-director with Sircar. The duo worked together on 2015 comedy-drama "Piku", also featuring megastar Amitabh Bachchan and Deepika Padukone.

Ronnie Lahiri, Sircar's producing partner, shared the news of their collaboration with Babil in an Instagram post.

"Honored to take forward your legacy Irrfan sir. Worked with a legend like you, And now Babil. If this is not a providence, then what is?," Lahiri wrote alongside photographs from the sets with the young actor.

Details about the project, backed by Lahiri and Sheel Kumar's Rising Sun Films Production, are still under wraps.

Babil, who is set to make his acting debut with Netflix film "Qala" co-starring Tripti Dimri , shared the same post on his Instagram handle.
