Irrfan became a prominent face in international cinema after acting in films such as Warrior, A Mighty Heart, New York, I Love You, and Danny Boyle’s multiple Oscar-winning film, Slumdog Millionaire. His most recent release is filmmaker Ang Lee’s Life Of Pi. The 45-year-old star feels Hollywood films always have a hidden meaning in them.
“In our films, what’s on the surface is what it is... there’s no layering. But if you take big Hollywood films, there is something they are trying to suggest to the audience,” says Irrfan. “When an intellectual person watches Slumdog Millionaire, he relates to it in a completely different way, and when a child will watch Life Of Pi, he will take it differently. That’s what we need to strive and that’s what our next generation is going to do,” adds the actor.
