With back-to-back successful films ‘Hindi Medium’ (2017) and ‘Qarib Qarib Singlle’ (2017), Irrfan Khan has had a great year in Bollywood. After recently winning in the Best Actor category at the Star Screen Awards, Khan couldn’t help but reflect on his long career in films.

“It’s amazing that I won this very same award as the Best Villain for ‘Haasil’ (2003), and now I won it for the Best Actor. It’s humbling and I’m really glad to know how successful ‘Hindi Medium’ has been as a film.” Khan told Hindustan Times.

Proud of the appreciation his content-driven films have received, Khan added that, “I have always strongly believed that the economics of a film’s success can be achieved with films that run high on content. ‘Hindi Medium’, I do truly believe was a complete entertainer with a great message and subject backing it, and that’s what makes this win even more special. The year has ended on a great note first, with my last film being appreciated by all and now, this.”
