We saw him becoming an actor in real sense, from his unknown roles in ‘Star Bestsellers’ to starring with Tom Hanks in ‘Inferno’, Irrfan Khan has made India proud for almost 2 decades now! He is one actor who has proved his prowess in not only Bollywood but in foreign cinema too. His films like ‘Jurassic World’, ‘Life of Pi’, ‘A Mighty Heart’ and many more have done quite well in Hollywood, however his roles and appearances vary in different films. Every single film he has done is not only a well deserved choice but also displays a depth, to which he understands his character.
When it comes to working in Hollywood, Irrfan Khan has a long career to be discussed, he rather maintains his low and avoids excessive propaganda about every small-big work he is doing. He lately discussed his take on how Indian web series market is just not upto-the-mark, if compared to foreign sitcoms on web.
Not many of us know but Irrfan is currently venturing into a Japanese web series. Speaking to Mid Day, the actor revealed, “They are neither passionate nor have the understanding of a good story. We will not be able to deliver a world-class web series since such projects are born purely from passion.”
Here is the trailer of his upcoming Japanese series!
On a more serious note he said, “Humare paas web series banane ke liye talent nahin hai (We don’t have the talent to make a web series); it’s the bitter truth.” Adding further he quoted, “”Earlier, directors used to think of ways to break into Hollywood. Today, one can sit in India and make a world class product. But we are taking it lightly by making stupid comedies. I doubt if we will be able to cash in on the digital platform.”
Irrfan’s latest web series ‘Tokyo Trial’ is a historic drama that focuses on major events which took place in Pacific post World War 2.
Here is the season 1 – episode 1 for you!
