IR­RFAN KHAN : NEED TO TAKE AN­OTHER BIRTH TO COM­PETE WITH RA­JINIKANTH

Fiji Sun - - Showbiz -

Bol­ly­wood ac­tor Ir­rfan Khan, whose film Madaari is slated to clash with Ra­jinikanths Ka­bali at the box of­fice, says there is no com­pe­ti­tion be­tween him and the south­ern su­per­star and that he will have to take an­other birth to com­pete with him. Ir­rfan’s film Madaari is all set to re­lease on July 22, the day when Ra­jinikanths much-awaited Ka­bali hits the screens. When asked about the clash, Ir­rfan said, It is not a clash, he is a big man, a big ac­tor who is known across the globe. I cant be his equal. My film is com­ing with his, which is my good for­tune. We will be happy if our film earns a lit­tle bit more money than what we have in­vested… I re­spect him a lot as a per­son. I need to take an­other birth to com­pete with him, the Piku star said

The 49-year-old ac­tor was speak­ing at the spe­cial screen­ing of Madaari held ex­clu­sively for chil­dren. The Jazbaa ac­tor said he wants chil­dren to watch In­dian cinema which is go­ing through a huge change. I want our kids to watch the cinema we are mak­ing to­day. Of­ten they watch Hol­ly­wood movies and se­ries, so they are not able to watch our cinema. Di­rected by Nishikant Ka­mat, the drama-thriller also stars Jimmy Shergill. Ir­rfan, who has been busy with back-to-back city tours for pro­mot­ing the film, said he hates pro­mo­tions and finds it an ex­tremely bor­ing as­pect of film­mak­ing.

Irfan Khan.
