7 lesser-known Irrfan Khan performances you must dive into


Irrfan Khan is one of the most important and iconic faces of Hindi Cinema. With his powerhouse performances, we have all seen him purporting magic on the big screen. He worked in tv industry extensively during the 90s and early 2000s. Irrfan played a variety of roles in his career but some of them went comparatively unnoticed due to the early stage of his career.

Here is the list containing some of his lesser-known but equally brilliant performances.

  1. 1

    Salaam Bombay(1988)

    In this 1988 Mira Nair film Irrfan plays a small but interesting role of a letter writer. He can be seen with the protagonist of the film in the attached video where he throws away the letter in the end just to gulp down the poor boy's money.
  2. 2

    The Bypass(2003)

    A brazenly violent short film 'Bypass', tells the story of a ruthless stretch of a bypass where people are not to be trusted. The local people around loot and kill the innocent riders and travellers who chose to take the bypass. A short, comprising brilliant, blood-curdling performances by Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Irrfan Khan goes on to portray a world of hitmen.
  3. 3

    Haasil(2003)

    Tigmanshu Dhulia's Haasil is comparatively better known among the items included in this list. The movie tells the story of college politics and the violent power struggle that goes along with it. Irrfan plays the perfect villain who completely overshadows the protagonist Jimmy Shergill.
  4. 4

    Ek sham ki mulaqat

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uU-DlX34Os4
    A psychological tussle that leads to a highly unsettling end, this short film is a must watch for any Irrfan Khan fan. Directed by Tigmanshu Dhuliya Ek Sham ki Mulaqat tells the story of a couple who rent a new house only to discover later that their landlords have distinct personalities and the house has a particular feel to it.
  5. 5

  7. 7

    Chandrakanta(1994-)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQjNqJPFruQ
    In this epic fantasy tv series(based on the book by Devaki Nandan Khatri) Irrfan plays the role of an able warrior spy master who knows how to manoeuvre his way through any situation accordingly. A world of Magical Realism, Chandrakanta is both a must read and a must watch.
