There seems to be no stopping Irrfan Khan. The 49-year-old actor is known for his diverse and critically-acclaimed roles in Bollywood and Hollywood films. Irrfan has been seen in movies such as Life of Pi (2012) and Jurassic World (2015), and is currently doing another project — an adaptation of Dan Brown’s novel, Inferno — with Tom Hanks.
He has also been a popular face in the endorsement circuit. The brands that he is endorsing renew his contracts year after year. So, it comes as no surprise that the actor’s global reach is also getting him offers from across the world. The star has now bagged another international endorsement.
A source says, “Irrfan has been approached by a Swiss watchmaker brand to become their brand ambassador. The brand is looking to sign three celebrities, and they want Irrfan to be their brand ambassador in Asia, as he is a renowned face here.”
Irrfan’s spokesperson confirms the development, saying, “The team is in talks with the Swiss brand, and they’re about to finalise the deal. Hopefully, they will shoot the first ad by the end of the year.”
