Blackmail has released in the theatres on 6th April and it is being liked by one and all. Speaking of Irrfan, director Abhinay Deo said, "I had one of the best guys to do it with, Irrfan, who conveys so much through his eyes and through his expressions. So I was bold enough to take that risk of saying that my protagonist is going to speak the least in the entire scene. Irrfan’s casting was a two-hour job. He read the script in two hours and yes at the end of it." Talking about Irrfan's health, he said, "What we feel is prudent at the moment is that he spends time with his family and his treatment goes on in the best way possible."
