Irrfan Khan definitely seems to by flying a different kind of high what with his recent film ‘Life of Pi’ (2012) getting no less than 11 Oscar nominations. Khan has now joined hands with British filmmaker Asif Kapadia who won the best documentary BAFTA for ‘Senna’ in 2010.
According to Hindustan Times, Khan commented on the news, “I۪m doing a film with Asif Kapadia. A book has been sent to me. I۪m reading it. I don۪t know whether I should disclose the name right now, because then everyone will start talking about it. My role is that of a surgeon”. He is currently preoccupied with Bollywood projects.
The actor admits that he gets a lot of Hollywood offers for roles but he does not take them all, “I don۪t do all the films that come my way. Both the industries (Bollywood and Hollywood) are important to me. I can۪t shift to Hollywood, as I need to connect with people through Hindi cinema.”
Khan also expressed that there was an uncertainty as to whether ‘Life of Pi’ would have a positive impact on the audiences.
