People need role models and motivators that they can look up to in their respective field of work and then there are trend setters that set benchmarks and are followed all over.
Similarly with time in Bollywood, we have been seeing trend setters time to time in various ways. Shedding some light on career path of Irrfan Khan, we can see that the ace actor has been a trend setter from the beginning of his career and has been stepping the success ladder and setting bench marks to be followed.
Irrfan Khan as an actor has come a long way from his television journey to his well crafted career in Bollywood and Hollywood.
A set of things that he initiated in his journey have actually landed up becoming a trend that many have followed:
Films and Televisions can be hand in hand:
Many actors believed one can only do Television or films, but Irrfan changed this approach with his television appearance after several films with 'Mano Ya Na Mano' on Star One, if we see now a lot of celebrities are moving towards television and continuing with films too.
Exploring working in Television in the west:
We see a lot of Indian actors visiting US for auditions and doing television shows in the West. It was back in 2008 that Irrfan did his debut with 'In Treatment', an original HBO series and he will soon be seen in an American Japanese television show.
We now see this rage in Bollywood with biopics being made on various personalities. But Irrfan was one of the firsts who did PAN SINGH TOMAR much before biopics became a flavor of the season.
An Indian prominent face in Hollywood:
We always use to see blink and miss roles of Indian actors in Hollywood and still do. But Irrfan Khan proved his acting in the West and gained good meaty roles there, after which other actors started following the path.
