Another Version of this bio....

Born on 1st January 1967 in Jaipur, Irfan Khan is one of the finest actors of Hindi cinema. He came to Mumbai after completing graduation in 1987. He was busy with television and theater initially and later seen in a minute role in Mira Nair’s Salaam Bombay. In fact, he received a scholarship to pursue his studies in the National School of Drama in Delhi during 1984-1987.

After working in television, he started working in mainstream cinema. Unfortunately, in the initial stages his films didn’t set the cash registers ringing at the box office. But Lady Luck favored him when he worked in the film “The Warrior” which was directed by London-based Asif Kapadia. “The Warrior” gained recognition in the international film awards and Irfan Khan’s performance was noticed.

The Warrior, Billu and Rog were films which showed that Irfan Khan is an intensive actor. Then, he went to Hollywood and worked in films, including Slumdog Millionaire and The Mighty Heart. Maqbool, Road to Ladakh, Metro, and Namesake are some of the films, in which he proved his histrionics. Irfan had also acted in the HBO Series named In Treatment. He has two Film Fare Awards to his credit. Irfan Khan had travelled a long road in Bollywood and it was only his role in “The Warrior” which fetched him the much-needed appreciation. He had an unconventional appearance, which endeared him to the masses. His soul-stirring performances won him recognition throughout the world.

Since his entry in the film industry during 1988, his career was a roller coaster ride. Irfan Khan’s performances had depth in them and he maintained consistency in his acting skills. In fact, this attribute of him attracted the West. It is no exaggeration to tell that, he is one of the finest Indian actors, who make India proud at the international level.
