The trailer of Abhinay Deo’s directorial ‘Blackmail’ starring Irrfan Khan, in a nutshell, raises the question: ‘What will you do if you catch your wife cheating on you?’.
Scriptwriter Parveez Shaikh and director Abhinay Deo have worked on a script that is set in an Indian metropolitan city with Irrfan’s character as the protagonist. The teaser of the film was released on Valentine’s Day and it immediately created a stir on the Internet with its quirkiness. The trailer of the film takes it to a level ahead. It starts with Irrfan realizing that his wife is cheating on him. But instead of reacting violently, Irrfan immediately comes up with the plan of Blackmailing his wife’s boyfriend.

‘Blackmail’ takes the case of infidelity and turns the table. In the past, there have been numerous cases where partners have reacted very violently when they have discovered that their significant other is cheating on them. Most recently Akshay Kumar’s Rustom was based on the infamous Nanavati Case where naval officer K. M. Nanavati murdered his wife’s alleged lover Prem Ahuja.
Irrfan took to Twitter to share the trailer saying, “Trailer of ‘#Blackmail’ is finally here! Directed by the acclaimed #AbhinayDeo of ‘Delhi Belly’ fame. A talented star-cast that includes @IamKirtiKulhari, #ArunodaySingh, @divyadutta25 & @OmiOneKenobe. In Cinemas 6th April, 2018. @tseries #RDPMotionPictures”.
