Ir­rfan Khan is one ac­tor in Bol­ly­wood who broke many myths and kept barg­ing on his way to be­come one of those ac­tors who isn’t just recog­nised in his coun­try, but is de­sired by film­mak­ers all across the globe. Start­ing his ca­reer graph from tele­vi­sion to gain­ing promi­nence in Hindi cinema and ex­plor­ing the west­ern cinema as well, Ir­rfan Khan has done it all what it takes to be­come a su­per­star. He is a trend­set­ter of a kind who has gone out of his com­fort zone into an arena which he never thought of and win­ning the hearts of many there as well. Here’s all you need to know about Ir­rfan Khan’s jour­ney in the in­dus­try within the coun­try and overseas:

1- Ir­rfan proved that films and TV can be done hand in hand

It is of­ten thought that a per­son can ei­ther suc­ceed in movies or in films, but Ir­rfan has shat­tered this myth by han­dling both with great care earn­ing suc­cess ev­ery­where. af­ter star­ring in sev­eral films, he went to tele­vi­sion for the show ‘Mano ya na Mano’. Nowa­days, we see many more celebri­ties

do­ing the same. They are tak­ing a turn and look­ing at the im­por­tant ret­ro­spec­tives of the tele­vi­sion in­dus­try as well.

2- Ex­plor­ing work in TV in west In­dian ac­tors are not new to the west­ern cinema and tele­vi­sion. In 2008 Ir­rfan Khan made his de­but on west­ern tele­vi­sion with the show Intreatment, an orig­i­nal HBO se­ries. Ac­tors like Nim­rat Kaur and Priyanka Cho­pra have also for­ayed in this in­dus­try with shows like Home­land and Quan­tico re­spec­tively.

3- Biopic Fever: Not only has Ir­rfan khan been a part of of hit films like Piku and many other, he has also been ap­pre­ci­ated for his role of Pan Singh To­mar in the fa­mous biopic.

4- A prom­i­nent In­dian face in Hol­ly­wood: We al­ways use to see blink and miss roles of In­dian ac­tors in Hol­ly­wood, it was when Ir­rfan Khan proved his act­ing in the west and gained good meaty roles in Hol­ly­wood.
