Irfan Khan‘s ‘Paan Singh Tomar’, produced by UTV and directed by talented Tigmanshu Dhulia, arrived at Indian box office last Friday with almost zero buzz – all thanks to the lackluster promotional activities. However, the movie went on to surprise everyone as it improved its collections tremendously on Satuday and Sunday, at the limited multiplexes it was released in. Soon after, many Bollywood stars also came forward to support this little gem. They all predict that Irfaan will walk away with best actor trophy next year at all the major award function. Let’s check out what these Bollywood stars had to say about this film on Twitter.
Amitabh Bachchan tweeted: ‘” Paan Singh Tomar ” : a stupendous film .. Tighmanshu Dhulia and Irrfan you are exceptional gentlemen ..many more laurels for you ! Restraint, in cinema, is the most difficult art in creativity .. ” Paan Singh Tomar ” is the perfect example of it… and what a tribute to the unsung sports heroes of the nation, who after the glory they bring, pass away in penury ..’
