We have already expressed our love for this versatile actor, the one who had humble beginnings and the one who is reveling in the success now. Not just Bollywood but Hollywood too has taken a note of this actor and plans to cash on the talent. Irrfan Khan is one actor who wouldn’t mind enacting a character for 10 minutes but within those 10 minutes he’d wow you and how! We are so in awe of his acting that we simply wish to see more of him.
Much like Deepika, this year Irrfan is going to rule the Box Office in India and abroad. Shoojit Sircar, Sujoy Ghosh, Marcus Raboy are the directors he’d be working with. Irrfan may not be a 100-crore-club-actor but he is perhaps the only one who keeps our faith in intellect and talent intact. He is an actor for classes and he doesn’t mind doing a 100 Lunchboxes or Paan Singh Tomars ‘coz awards or not he gets to live his passion and that’s makes him what he is today. From working in television to conquering 70mm, Irrfan has come a long way but we loved him then and we love him now. Here’s listing the treats that he is to offer this year.
A comedy-drama that depicts an unusual relationship between a father and daughter is a quirky film that stars Deepika Padukone, Amitabh Bachchan and Irrfan Khan. The film by ace director Shoojit Sircar will see Irrfan romancing the current B-town sensation, Deepika. It is an unusual pair as is the theme of the film. We only await the release of the film to see can unconventional pairs have pipping hot chemistry onscreen.
Debutant Rahi Anil Barve’s Tumbad is a mysery-fantasy-thriller set in colonial India. The film is touted to be most ambitious projects by the star cast. The film stars Sohum Shah, Ship Of Theseus fame, alongside Irrfan Khan. This dark drama has earned accolades even before its release for being a “visual masterpiece.”
This can be called as Irrfan Khan’s most ambitious project. The next in Jurassic Park franchise happens to be closer to the actors heart for it was Jurassic Park that reminds him of his financial trials. In a candid interview to Hollywood Reporter, Irrfan said that when Jurassic Park released in India he didn’t have money to buy ticket for the movie although he desperately wanted to watch it. After so many years, the franchise comes to the cinemas once again and stars Irrfan Khan as a supporting actor.
The Hustle, The Flow, The Verdict
Originally called as ‘Who Shot The Sheriff?’ the film is based on the mystery-thriller by John Andrews. The film which is directed by Marcus Raboy also stars Rosario Dawson, Kevin Hart, Rihanna and Jennifer Hudson.
Durga Rani Singh
The film which has had multiple cast changes has Irrfan Khan playing the titular character. Sujay Ghosh’s next directorial venture is about a paralyzed teen girl and her struggles. Before Shilpa Shukla was signed opposite Irrfan the role had been offered to Kangana Ranaut, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Vidya Balan. The film is fastpaced and off-beat flick.
Apart from these films, Irrfan will be producing a flick with Mira Nair and will also be seen in the character of celebrated poet-lyricist Sahir Ludhianvi.
