That's not our observation but his own admission in a recent interview to a men's magazine. Luckily enough, he is getting to "sex up" leading actresses on screen. After his steamy love-making scene in Maqbool with Tabu and liplock with Diyva Dutta in the yet-to-release Hissss, Irrfan is now doing a series of intimate scenes with Mahie Gill in Paan Singh Tomar.
The film is rumoured to have a certain amount of nudity too. The lovemaking scenes are raw and animalistic as they depict the sexual relations between Paan Singh (played by irrfan) and his wife. A source says, "The love-making scenes were challenging to Irrfan as they spanned different ages from the time he gets married (at 18) to middle age."
Irrfan says, "I am comfortable with kissing and love making in films depending on what the situation demands and the mental make-up of the girl and how comfortable she is. If she's tense I get tense too. It also depends whether the scene is titillating as that makes me uncomfortable or natural. Sometimes making love is a way for growing closer emotionally.
Speaking about his confession about being obsessed with sex, he says, "I used to be obsessed with sex till a certain time. Earlier, it used to be just sex, now its emotions with sex. If you love someone and are having sex with that woman it can be magical. Nowadays I don't enjoy sex for the heck of it.
It's more of a distraction. Yes once in a while I get attracted to beautiful women but then I remind myself that I should keep looking for different things. Sometimes being just friends is more precious than making love. Once you get into a relationship you get possessive and start fighting.."
