If Bollywood’s big Khans are eyeing Rs. 100 crore and Rs. 200 crore club, internationally acclaimed Irrfan Khan says he has already surpassed that with Slumdog Millionaire and The Amazing Spider-Man collections.
“Slumdog Millionaire has earned more than Rs. 800 crore, Spider-Man must have gone beyond that and Life Of Pi will definitely go bigger because the cost itself is Rs. 500 crore. So, I am working in both kinds of films and I am in the Rs. 1,000 crore zone,” Irrfan said. Thanks to international offers, Irrfan has an option to move base to Hollywood, but says he has no such plans.
“I get a lot of Hollywood films and if I want to shift there and live there, I could do that. But then I will have to depend on each and every film that is coming my way for survival and I don’t want to do that. I want to choose subjects that are special to me, giving me something extra as an actor to engage myself and that’s why I do Hollywood film, otherwise, I don’t get money.”
“It doesn’t mean that if it’s a $100 million film I am getting a million dollar. It’s not like that...Sometimes I lose money. But the kind of films I did has given me a longer life as an actor.
