So he wanted to see it and fortunately for me, they were doing this one scene where Irrfan decided to improvise. And Irrfan never ever gives the same cue again.”
“So Rishi Kapoor called me and said, ‘Usko samjhao, usko acting nahi aati hai. He has to hit his cue otherwise I will not know how to do and what to say.’ So I explained to him and said ‘Sir you don’t have to worry. You start speaking whenever you want to speak, don’t worry about him.’ They were just very different but they were very special. The film has become even more special for me now,” said the director.
‘D-Day’ was the only film where Rishi Kapoor and Irrfan Khan had shared screen space. In the movie, Irrfan played an undercover R&AW agent while Rishi played an undercover don. One of the film’s scenes featuring Rishi and Irrfan in a car has been massively shared on social media since their deaths.
