After making his mark in Bollywood and getting a taste of Hollywood, actor Irrfan now plans to venture into production. “I don’t think I’m ready for direction. With production if the need arises, if somebody is interested, then definitely I’d like to produce films with a story I’m convinced with,” he says.
The actor — who has been part of films like Yeh Saali Zindagi, Maqbool, Paan Singh Tomar, Slumdog Millionaire and The Amazing Spider-Man — knows his production target well. “I’d like to produce films which the audience is eager to watch today, with a new way of storytelling. I’m very clear that people come to cinema for an emotional experience. I’d like to do a subject like that which is also rooted, like in Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster,” he says.
Meanwhile, Irrfan is now gearing up for Life Of Pi, which has been directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Ang Lee.
