Irrfan Khan wins his first award for The Lunchbox in Paris

The Lunchbox actor has won the Best Actor award for his latest romantic film in the capital of romance

Irrfan Khan has won the Best Actor at the Saint Jean De Luz Film Festival in Paris. He flew to Paris on Wednesday night to receive his first award for The Lunchbox. Irrfan says, “The Lunchbox is a very special film with such a simple and heartwarming story and a universal appeal.

The film has got a great response and has been hugely appreciated pan India and internationally. It feels great to receive an award in the global capital of romance — Paris, for our sweet love story.”

The actor doesn’t want to comment on The Good Road going for the Oscars instead of his film. He’d rather talk about his own film. “The Lunchbox started its journey from India on a high note. It’s going to win the hearts of the rest of the world in coming months and create a buzz and new perception about Indian cinema. I’m very pleased to be awarded for this ‘love box’.”
