He barely had the money to watch Jurassic Park in cinema. However, after 22 years of constant struggle, he was able to act in Jurassic Park. Such was a wonderful journey of Late Irrfan Khan.
Rajasthan born star acted in various roles and was larger than life in reel life. However, he had some interesting facts attached to his real life:
A Royal Birth
On 7th January 1967, history of Irran Khan started as he was born in Muslim Pathan family in Jaipur. His father was Jaagirdar Khan and ran a tyre business. But Irrfan chose to become an actor after getting a scholarship in National School of Drama (NSD).
Irrfan Khan – A True Cricket Passionate
Not many people know that Late Irrfan Khan was keen to play cricket at professional level. The bollywood star was interested to make a career in cricket, but his parents, as many in sub-continent, were not at the same page.
According to Dr. Nauman Niaz, a senior sports anchor of Pakistan revelaed about his cricket passion. In reply to cricket statistician Mazher Arshad, Niaz told that he was cricket savvy and played at the Under-23 level. Slumdog Milllionaire star was selected in CK Naidu Trophy (U23) but couldn’t go on due to lack of funds.
Both Dr. Niaz and Irrfan got treatment in Princess Grace Hospital in England and later was clean bowled by cancer. #RIPIrrfan
Worked with Pakistani Star Saba Qamar
Pakistani top drama actress, Saba Qamar acted against Irrfan Khan. Both were in the Bollywood movie named “Hindi Medium”. After this tragic news, Qamar was devastated and she showed her grief via her twitter.
Life is very unpredictable and Irrfan’s demise shows that. Presence of Irrfan Khan in bollywood was more than a star. In cricketing analogy, he always had “extra time” in his dialogue delivery. Screen presence of this terrific actor is eternal and so his legacy.
