He might not be like our usual Khans but that’s exactly what makes him Irrfan Khan, one of the most talented actors, a strong personality, a global Indian and a hero in the real sense. It is really hard to attribute in just a few words what this actor is but we can say that he’s surely one of those finest actors in the industry who brings the real to reel.
The news of his rare disease has made his fans restless but we should not forget that he’s a man of strength and he will definitely come out of this phase victoriously.
Here are some quotes from the actor that’ll make you believe in his strength.
“The sign of a good society is where talent is respected.”
“Wanting fame is a disease and one day I will want to be free from this disease, from this desire. Where fame doesn’t matter. Where just experiencing life and being okay with it is enough.”
“I want to entertain people, but with some substance.”
“I’m not a very talkative man, and people are threatened by silence. If you’re sitting in a group and you’re not saying anything, people start getting insecure. They start thinking, he’s a snob. Or, he’s thinking something negative about me. Silence brings out your devils.”
“Maybe to become famous is to reassure yourself that whatever you’re lacking inside, you’ve fulfilled that.”
“The day I become conventional, something inside me will die.”
“It pains me when a film actor or a cricketer is a youth icon. I don’t have anything against them. They are great entertainers; they are useful to the society. They contribute to people’s lives. But they are not heroes.”
“A nation needs to know how to utilize talent.”
Get well soon, Irrfan Khan.
