Irrfan Khan is one of the most versatile actors in Bollywood and he has proved it several times with his acting. While, Irrfan has till date been seen in positive, negative, supporting roles, he was never seen in a romantic role, until the release of Piku.
Unconventional pairings, heroes turning villains, female-centric films, Bollywood seems to have seen it all in the past few years. Now actor Irrfan Khan is here to break more stereotypes and has conveniently tossed away all conventional opinions about typical romantic heroes of Bollywood.
Irrfan Khan's onscreen chemistry with Deepika Padukone in his latest film Piku is perfect. No one could imagine Irrfan in a romantic picture with Deepika but their chemistry in Piku simply made us believe that Irrfan is no less than any A lister Bollywood hero.
Not only that, he will also be seen opposite Kangana Ranaut and Aishwarya Rai as the romantic lead in Divine Lovers and Jazbaa, respectively.
Having said all these, we can assert that Irrfan Khan is the new romantic hero in Bollywood and the following five reasons justify it...
The King Of ‘Real’ Romance
The small nuances of love and romance are best captured by Irrfan Khan as he displays that side of love which is more real than reel. Silence is the best form of communication between two people in love, and actor Irrfan Khan perfectly plays the silent and calm lover with not his expressions but his gestures too. He displays the sense of longing for a woman that is always present in real life romances.
The Unconventional Looking Hero Of Bollywood
His looks are what make him relatable as an actor. Not every guy in reality is a Greek God and love is much more than that. Irrfan Khan has turned his looks into an advantage and played the loving husband, the quiet lover and the witty friend with ease in several films.
The Guy Every Girl Would Marry
Irrfan Khan doesn't qualify as the stereotypical guy on the street, someone who wears low jeans, tight shirts and gelled hair with a boyish personality. But he is someone who knows what he does every step of the way, a simple man with a simple heart and a charismatic personality, a mature partner who will steal your heart and is a man one can always fall back on.
The Actor Who Redefines Mature Love Stories
Love doesn't always need to be expressed in order to show it to the world. Actor Irrfan Khan is one of those actors who represent the shy, mature and reserved kind of love that is actually very simple. There's no running around trees, singing songs - but a deep and mature feeling that enhances the whole experience of falling in love.
The hilarious and charming actor
Irrfan Khan is one of those romantic heroes who don't impress their lady loves by grand actions but by simple things like making them laugh and engaging in intellectual yet simple conversations. Long walks on the beach are the best with a guy like him.
