Irrfan Khan wants Bollywood to connect to the global audience
Mumbai: Irrfan Khan is in the news these days for his performance in the highly acclaimed movie made on low budget titled “Lunchbox”. He says we need to make Indian cinema speak in a universal language so that the entire world does not think of the industry to be just “item number”.
Irrfan continues saying outside India, Bollywood is called “item number” and this perception of the outsiders must be changed as soon as possible. There must be some interesting films made in India so that people from all over the world can understand and relate to it. Irrfan may not be a Bollywood superstar, but when it comes to acting prowess, he has shown he is no less than these superstars in any way.
The 46 years old star says that films like “Qissa” and “Lunchbox” have done great job by connecting to the global audience. The actor has a profound knowledge on the language of cinema understood all around the globe. He has delivered phenomenal performance in films like “The Namesake”, “Life of Pi”, “Slumdog Millionaire”, “Maqbool”, “Paan Singh Tomar”. “Lunchbox” has won accolades at film festivals all over the world. Same with film “Qissa” which was screened at Abu Dhabi Film Festival.
