Deepika’s role is just amazing” said Irrfan Khan about working with Deepika Padukone during his recent media interaction for QQS promotion.

Irrfan Khan further drew parallel with Piku and Qarib Qarib Singlle, stating that the story of the film is not as important as the characters.
“This film is about the chemistry of the characters, there is not much up-down in the storyline, this is not a plot-oriented film. It is a movie about characters. Just like Piku, the story of the film wasn’t important, I mean it was a story about a family going from Delhi to Kolkata, the same journey is there in QQS, here character is important, their relationship is important and once the audience is hooked to the characters, then they want to see what they can do” said Irrfan Khan.
