Is Irrfan Khan getting too big for his boots?
It’s Khan vs Khan in Bollywood, as Irrfan sets his sights on Shahrukh Khan’s Dhyan Chand
We love Irrfan. He’s a Khan, even though he’s dropped his surname. Perhaps that explains why he doesn’t get racially profiled when he goes to the US to shoot the likes of The Amazing Spider-Man, unlike his Khan namesake Shahrukh. But now, like it happens periodically with him, our Irrfan is getting a bit too ambitious, a bit too big for his Paan Singh Tomar sized boots, shall we say. Irrfan has now set his sights on Indian hockey great Dhyan Chand. “It has been one of my dreams to do a role on Dhyan Chand. It seems I have grown too old to play this role. But if I get a chance to do I will definitely play the role of Dhyan Chand in a film. Dhyan Chand’s story is amazing and he had made the country very proud. He made a very big name for himself in the field of hockey and today see the condition of hockey. I think we should definitely make a film on Dhyan Chand,” said Irrfan. Arrey tera ‘Dhyan’ kidhar hai, Irrfan bhai? Don’t you know that after his masterly performance in Chak De! India, Shahrukh is in talks to play Dhyan Chand? Click here to read more
