Happy Birthday Irrfan Khan: 5 underrated films of India’s international actor
Paan Singh Tomar
'Paan Singh Tomar' was a biopic on a former athlete-turned-bandit. Irrfan Khan played the lead in the movie. Though he was appreciated for his roles even before this movie, 'Paan Singh Tomar' opened many opportunities for him. Before this movie, he was about to leave acting, but the movie changed his career.
Irrfan Khan's character of Saajan made us fall in love with him. He played a widower who received a wrong lunchbox from a young isolated housewife Ila (Nimrat Kaur) by mistake.
Irrfan Khan surprised everyone by playing the role of Roohdaar in 'Haider. He played a very mysterious character with a very strong screen presence.
Qarib Qarib Singlle
What made us love Irrfan Khan in this movie is the character of Yogi aka Yogendra Kumar Devendra Nath Prajapati. It is hilarious and he can cross any limits to find love.
7 Khoon Maaf
Undoubtedly, Priyanka was phenomenal in '7 Khoon Maaf'. However, we can't overlook the character of Irrfan Khan, who played Priyanka's on-screen husband. He played a poet named Wasiullah Khan with split personalities. He was normal in day light and a nightmare at night. This character couldn't have been played better by anyone else than Irrfan Khan.
