Irrfan Khan is inarguably one of the most talented Indian actors today. Having bagged a National Film Award and several other prestigious honours, he has also acted in various Hollywood and British films.
When we caught up with him, the actor reveals that he is set to star with popular Hollywood actor-film-maker Tom Hanks in his next film. Also talks about doing an international TV series.
We’ve heard you’ll feature in Inferno with Tom Hanks.
Yes. The modalities have been worked out. In fact, the announcement will be made soon. The shoot will start in April. The makers have worked out dates to suit the promotional activities of my next Hindi film. They have made the shooting schedule compact.
Is it true that after In Treatment (American TV series), you will be seen in an international show based on World War 2?
Yes, the dates for that are being worked out. It’s a Japanese production and I would like to be part of it. When a war takes place, both warring sides have their own version of the reality. I think we’ve just seen that aspect of the World War that has been propagated. We will showcase the other side of the story.
