Irrfan Khan: I’m Jealous of Writers

The Lunchbox actor Irrfan Khan who recently launched a book The Dream Chasers, said he is jealous of writers as he said (funnily enough), that he lost many girlfriends because he couldn’t express his love in beautiful love letters. The book The Dream Chasers, is written by Vipul Mittra, the Secretary of Gujarat Tourism.

Irrfan said “We all are dream chasers. I am delighted that Vipulji called me to introduce his book to the world. When I read the book it reminded me of my days in NSD (National School of Drama). I am jealous of writers like him because I lost many girlfriends as I couldn’t express my feelings beautifully in love letters.”

When asked about love stories and his recent romance film The Lunchbox, the 46 year old actor said, “I always wanted to do love stories as I didn’t get much chance to do a romantic film. My idea of romance is completely different. I did ‘The Lunchbox’ because I knew that I will be able to touch many hearts with my film.”

The actor who co-produced the film, expressed disappointment over the film not being selected as India’s official entry to Oscars and said “Whatever the responsibility of the body is, they should have done a good job. I am just disappointed as it was a film with a new language and has the capacity to connect with the world audience. That film was unique in its own way. If that film would have got proper importance then we should have said that you (jury) are giving right signal to upcoming talents, who are trying to make innovation in film language. Madras Cafe and Ship of Theseus are also the films with new language. They also have the capability to connect with the universal audience.”
