Irrfan Khan is one actor who’s proved that with a talent like that of his, an artist can go places and loved by all of the world. After wooing the bollywood audiences with amazing performances he’s gone on to win the likes of hollywood audiences as well with some really good movies like Life of Pi, Slumdog Millionaire and The Amazing Spiderman.
Now, he is all set to venture into the Brazilian films! He will be seen playing the role of an Arabic guy in a Brazilian film. Talking about the film and how he’s apprehensive about learning Brazilian, here’s what Irrfan Khan says, “It’s too early to reveal any details. But it’s a Brazilian film. And I play an Arabic character. So yes, I’ll have to learn Arabic from scratch. I don’t know the language at all. But I am hoping it wouldn’t be so difficult to do since it belongs to the linguistic family as Hindi and Urdu.”
Along with that movie, Irrfan Khan’s got another challenging character to play.., that if a local Kashmirian in Vishal Bharadwaj’s Haider. For this, he will have to learn to speak a very difficult Urdu accent.
“We are trying to keep the accent at a minimum so that it doesn’t intrude into the character’s connectivity with the audience. Very often we see the accent come in the way. Vishal Bhardwaj and I don’t want that to happen. It’s important for an actor to avoid showing off any skill that he learns for a role.” say Irrfan talking about his accent in Haider.
