With his unrivaled acting talent, Irrfan has established a name for himself in both Bollywood and Hollywood in a short period of time. The actor has made a name for himself via his acting abilities, unconventional parts, and films.
Let’s take a look at some of his most well-known Hindi flicks in honor of his birthday:
Life in a…Metro: Anurag Basu directed Metro, an Indian drama film. Extramarital relationships, the sanctity of marriage, and love are all discussed in the film, which follows the lives of nine people living in Mumbai. The film is famous for Irrfan’s depiction of a confused-cute boy with an endearing sense of humor, in addition to being one of filmmaker Anurag Basu’s greatest works.
Madaari: In this 2016 social thriller film, Irrfan Khan delivered another flawless performance. Irrfan played a parent who had lost his son in the film. He abducted the Home Minister’s son in order to gain justice. Despite the film’s lackluster box office performance, Irrfan won hearts with his stunning portrayal of the anguish of losing a kid.
Maqbool: ‘Maqbool,’ directed by Vishal Bhardwaj and produced by Bobby Bedi, starring Irrfan Khan, Tabu, Pankaj Kapoor, Om Puri, and Naseeruddin Shah. It was released in 2004 and stars Irrfan Khan, Tabu, Pankaj Kapoor, Om Puri, and Naseeruddin Shah in prominent parts. With the Mumbai underworld as its background, the film was a fantastic interpretation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Despite the fact that ‘Maqbool’ did not do well at the box office, it was Irrfan’s performance as Jahangir Khan’s right-hand man, a strong underworld Don, that drew everyone’s attention.
Paan Singh Tomar: Irrfan Khan portrayed Indian Army soldier Paan Singh Tomar in this Tigmanshu Dhulia film, who is forced to become a dacoit due to difficult circumstances. Irrfan was able to develop his own identity throughout this period. Irrfan Khan’s work in this film is among his greatest. His gritty portrayal also earned Irrfan his first Best Feature Film and Best Actor nominations at the 60th National Film Awards 2012.
The Lunchbox: In this odd love story, Irrfan Khan steals the show as a reclusive widower who forms an extraordinary epistolary bond with a housewife. The actor once again spelled magic onscreen by portraying the character wonderfully and expressing emotions with his eyes.
And it doesn’t stop there.
Apart from his outstanding performance in these films, Irrfan has also demonstrated his enthusiasm for acting in a number of other films. He also appeared in several international projects such as ‘Slumdog Millionaire’, ‘Life of Pi’, ‘New York’, ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’, ‘Jurassic World’ and ‘Inferno’, to name a few.
He will always live with us through his movies.
