Irrfan Khan sure has achieved a lot of appreciation as well as recognition when it comes to the Firangi movies. In the past five years Irrfan Khan got a sole opportunity of working in two Oscar winning movies like Slumdog Millionaire and The Life Of Pie. Apart from these movies Irrfan has also acted with many high end Hollywood actors like Natalie Portman and Tom Cruise to name a few. He has also been a part of the latest Spiderman flick as well.
Irrfan sure is basking in his list of laurels but is also
challenging himself even more by saying yes to a Brazilian movie.
The actor known to go to great lengths for his roles will be
learning how to speak Arabic. When confronted Irrfan was reluctant
to give out any details but did admit that he will be playing an
Arabic character for which he would have to learn Arabic from
scratch. Even though not knowing anything about the language,
Irrfan is optimistic about learning it as he feels the language
belongs to the linguistic family of Hindi and Urdu.
Arabic is not the only language that Irrfan had to learn , the
actor is also playing a Kashmiri character for his upcoming film
Haider where he had to learn the way Urdu was spoken in
the valley of Kashmir. However the makers of Haider do not
want a very heavy accent from Irrfan as it might lose the
connectivity of the audience with the character.
With his hands full Irrfan sure seems to be challenging himself more and more and trying out something new evrytime. Lets hope Irrfan learns Arabic soon enough to start the shoot of the movie.
