After massive hits like the Bollywood Party Song, Dank Irrfan and a series of memes on the internet, Irrfan Khan is now all set to collaborate for the third time with the digital comedy group, All India Bakchod (AIB). The show titled The Ministry, has been written by AIB and will be a 10-part series.
According to sources, the show is said to be a hard hitting political satire and will be streamed on Amazon Prime. “This show will continue Irrfan's foray into various fields of entertainment making him one of the few stars who does not shy away from experimentation regardless of the medium. The political satire genre was famous in the 90s and since then it hasn't had any noteworthy work, thus making this announcement a rather exciting one. With such synergies coming together, a global star, one of India's biggest comedy groups and one of the world's biggest digital platforms, The Ministry will definitely etch a new benchmark for such content,” says a source.
Speaking about the show, Irrfan said, “I am looking forward to a yet another fun collaboration with AIB, they always have content that makes me excited to work with them. It would be a great experience to be working on the show.”
Vijay Subramaniam, Director, Content, Amazon Prime Video India, said, “Our comedy offering has been widely appreciated by the audience and we are proud to say that we are only getting started. After a phenomenal response to our licensed comedy shows, we are excited to launch our very own Amazon Original in the comedy space.”
Gursimran Khamba from AIB said, “Irrfan told us that he wanted to be part of this show when he first heard about it. But because of certain complications it didn't work out. Then one night I met him at a party where he took me aside, stared into my eyes and said I want this. And we all know how hard it is to resist Irrfan’s eyes.”
