There were reports that Irrfan, 49, and Kangana, 29, would come together for director Sai Kabir's next Divine Lovers. Kangana left the movie in December 2015, citing date issues. Zareen Khan later replaced the Queen actress in the film. 

"I don't know if I would be able to do Divine Lovers or not as it comes and goes. Now, Kangana is out of reach. I am ok playing a heroine in a film, where Kangana would be the hero," Irrfan told reporters at the trailer launch of Madaari here.

Divine Lovers is a tale set in the lower middle-class section of society in the heartland of India. The film is an adventure comedy, whose shoot starts in September.
