What inspired Irrfan Khan to be an actor?

Irrfan Khan is one actor, who has proved his worth with his impeccable acting skills in Bollywood as well as Hollywood. The versatile actor has come a really long way.

The poster of his next Hollywood venture, ‘Inferno’ which is the third part of Ron Howard’s mega successful series based on Dan Brown’s book of the same name, has come out, and we are immensely proud to see the actor perform incredibly in the west. Having worked with several award winning directors, Irrfan Khan will be seen essaying the role of The Provost alongside Tom Hanks in the lead.

But this success has not come easy to Irrfan. In fact, in the initial days of his career, the actor’s  parents weren’t supportive of his idea to make a name in the film industry but Irrfan was keen on achieving his goals and making a name for himself. He recently revealed what actually inspired him to be an actor. It was when Irrfan did a job as a repairman and happened to visit the house of none other than Bollywood icon, Rajesh Khanna. His mere boredom of being a non creative soul made his irk to be an actor much stronger.

We are a fan of Dan Brown’s works, and we definitely can’t wait to see Irrfan essaying this role alongside Tom Hanks reprising his role as Robert Langdon.
