Irrfan Khan, who is known for his versatility, is celebrating his 53rd birthday today. Irrfan started his acting career with serials like Chanakya, Bharat Ki Khoj, Banegi Apni Baat and Chandrakanta among others, and went on to do many superhit films in Bollywood and Hollywood. Irrfan Khan once featured in India TV's superhit show Aap Ki Adalat and revealed quite a lot about his personal life.
When India TV editor-in-chief Rajat Sharma asked Irrfan if he had always wanted to be an actor, Irrfan said he tried doing many jobs but that would bore him after a point after which he realised that money isn’t the only requirement. He wanted to do something that would just not give him money but also satisfaction. And after he watched a few films, he realised that was something he could do.
Irrfan revealed that he belonged to a conservative family and dancing singing were seen as low jobs and he had to convince his mother that he wouldn’t dance and sing but do some good work in films.
Irrfan also revealed he tried copying Mithun's hairstyle when he was young.
On the work front, Irrfan, who had been missing from action following his cancer treatment, will soon be making his comeback with Angrezi Medium.
