After Bollywood Party Song and Dank Irrfan, award-winning actor Irrfan is collaborating with the comedy collective All India Bakchod for a third time. He will be starring in the lead role in AIB’s first web series The Ministry, which will make its debut on Amazon Prime Video worldwide in 2018.
The series, created by AIB founder-member Gursimran Khamba, has been described as a “political satire set in contemporary India’s corridors of power”. It follows Irrfan as a has-been film star who suddenly finds himself appointed as the Union Minister of Culture. Through his new role, he tries to win back the love of the masses.
The Ministry is a first in the web series both for Irrfan as well as AIB, which has been creating comedy sketches and stand-up comedy for years.
