Life Story of Irrfan Khan

Born Sahabzade Irfan Ali Khan, in Jaipur, Rajasthan (NW India) January 7, 1967 to a Pashto speaking Muslim family. Khan's mother, Begum Khan, was from the Tonk Hakim family and his father, Jagirdar Khan, from the Khajuriya village near the Tonk district, ran a tire business.

The Khan family name comes from Turkish and Mongol languages and mean "king" or great leader. Descendants of Ghengis Khan (13th century) in central Asia adopted Islam and became the Moghuls, who conquered India for several centuries until Brittish rule.

Irfan was a skilled cricket player. In his early 20's he was selected for the CK Nayudu Tournament (a stepping stone to First Class cricket). He did not turn up for the tournament owing to lack of funds and as a result he focused on acting.

In 1984 he earned a scholarship to the National School of Acting in New Delhi.

He was awarded the Padma Shri, India's fourth highest civilian honor for his contribution to the field of arts.

His portrayal of Paan Singh Tomar in the acclaimed biographical sports drama Paan Singh Tomar (2011) won him the National Film Award for Best Actor and a Filmfare Critics Award...

Tom Hanks and Irrfan Khan in Inferno (2016)

Was going to star in the Hollywood movie "Indian Summer". The controversial film "Indian Summer", about Lady Edwina Mountbatten's alleged affair with India's first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, has been scrapped. Based on the book of the same name by Alex Von Tunzelmann about the last days of Britain's colonial rule in India, the film got in trouble after the Indian government voiced concerns over the plot. Officials demanded copy approval of the script and eventually gave the film the green light, but the project continued to be plagued by money problems, with bosses at Universal Studios reportedly fretting over the estimated $30-40 million cost. Director Joe Wright (husband of Anoushka Shankar) says the wrangling with the Indian government effectively sealed the film's fate. "We were in between a rock and a hard place. The Indian government wanted us to make less of the love story while the studio wanted us to make more of the love story," he told Variety magazine. Cate Blanchett was roped in to play Edwina in the movie while Irrfan Khan was to play Nehru.

Irrfan Khan and Deepika Padukone in Piku (2015)

Starred in the shelved film ,Alibaug: A Sanjay Gupta film, based on an episode from Gupta's life. This film revolves around a young professor, who was once the life of his college. He is now dying, but has something to take care off before he breathes his last. He wishes to bring together his favourite bunch of students, who've drifted apart, and let the mad race of life take over their existence. Will the dying man help them make regain their lives?... Sanjay Dutt was to make a Special Appearance, but in March 2008 he asked Gupta to replace him. He had shot for ten days in June 2007, but after his separation from White Feather Films and Gupta and with his many other pending commitments, Sanjay obviously didn't find place for Alibaug anymore in his schedule. His role went to Irrfan Khan. But even then, the film was never completed.
