Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan was honoured with an award by a news channel for his contribution to Hindi cinema.
Irrfan Khan, who has been named ‘Entertainer of the Year’, says “the past two years have been a tremendous journey in redefining entertainment”
Irrfan Khan has made a name for himself in Hollywood with movies such as Life of Pi (2012) and Jurassic World (2015). In 2015, he was also appreciated for his performances in Bollywood films such as Piku and Talvar. Then, he grabbed attention for his role in Madaari. To honour him, a news channel has now bestowed the actor with the ‘Entertainer of the Year’ title. The awards ceremony took place in Delhi last night (August 30).
“Irrfan left for Delhi on August 23, and has been in the city ever since. He is shooting for his next film, but he took time out to attend the awards function,” says a source close to the actor.
When contacted, Irrfan confirmed the news, and said, “I am honoured to be felicitated with this title. The past two years have been a tremendous journey in redefining entertainment. I am touched that a gamut of roles across genres have been appreciated and loved by the audience. I thank everyone for their love and support. I pray that this journey continues.”
