    Khan was known for his nuanced and understated performances, with many calling him one of India’s most talented actors.
    He was so highly respected, director Wes Anderson once wrote him a part just so he could work with him.

    He kept in touch with Mira Nair – who had spotted his talent at drama school but cut him from Salaam Bombay. They would go on to make The Namesake in 2006 and New York, I Love You in 2010.

  • On being asked regarding his favorite Directors in an interview, Irrfan Khan replied:
    “My favourite director was Stanley Kubrick. Krzysztof Kieslowski. Andrei Tarkovsky… the earlier films of Satyajit Ray… the Apu Trilogy. The first film (Pather Panchali) he did, it was so organic. He learnt it on the job. That has a kind of mystery. He was discovering the craft. Ritwik Ghatak… Meghe Dhaka Tara. I love all his films. I watch it with subtitles.”
