Paan Singh Tomar has romanticism about it: Irrfan Khan

New Delhi: For the average movie buff, it may seem a story of a sportsman turned into a criminal but for prolific actor Irrfan Khan, his forthcoming film 'Paan Singh Tomar' is about the pain and angst undergone by the sportsman-turned rebel in his lifetime.

''The purpose of making Paan singh Tomar is not to highlight the criminal activities of Paan Singh. The film has a romanticism about it, in that it seeks to capture the angst and pain of the life of Paan Singh Tomar,'' Irrfan said at an event here to promote the film.

Releasing on March 2, the movie, directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia, is based on the real life of the sportsman-turned-dacoit from Chambal.

Produced by UTV Motion Pictures, the film has Irrfan Khan playing the lead character of Paan Singh Tomar, a national steeplechase champion for seven straight years who quit the sport and the Army to become a 'Bandit King' of the Chambal Valley.

Talking about his role, Irrfan Khan, said it was a challenge to play the character of a dacoit.

''It was a challenge for me to play Tomar. His life was full of uncertainty and confusion. For instance, there is a scene in the film where Paan Singh is shown to be at the crossroads of his life not knowing where to go. The scene aptly reflects his angst,'' Irrfan said.

However, playing the role of the sportsman-turned rebel involved a lot of painstaking research by Irrfan and the filmmakers.
