MUMBAI: Irrfan Khan had been known for his tough and spell bounding roles till the time Piku released last year which showcased the actor in an all new avatar.
He had always been seen doing serious roles, but Shoojit Sircar’s film showed the audience the lighter, more funnier romantic side of Irrfan which his audiences have otherwise not seen so far.
Going with this avatar, if sources are to be believed, the actor is said to have signed three films which are themed around romance.
The actor has in fact already shot a love story opposite Golshiften Farahani in Anoop Singh’s Songs of the Scorpion and is believed to be part of Gustaakhiyan.
He will also be seen romancing Pakistani beauty Sabah Qamar in Dinesh Vyanjan’s next as a producer.
Apart from these, the actor is currently on the verge of signing another light hearted romantic tale, where he with an unlilkely love interest takes on a road trip of sorts.
But his magical performance in Piku changed the perception of people towards him. Irrfan once said in one of his interviews that he would love to do more romantic roles provided the right kinds are offered to him. And after his new side in Piku, seems like the filmmakers have agreed to his wish.
His pairing with Deepika Padukone was been appreciated by all. And after that Irrfan has been offered a variety of scripts this year which are keen to explore his romantic side.
