“YOU ARE DOOMED IF YOU ARE CALLED A SUPERSTAR” : SAYS ACTOR IRRFAN

Actor Irrfan is all set to be back with his thought provoking entertainer ‘Hindi Medium’. The actor who has donned some very critically acclaimed roles spoke openly in an exclusive interview to Bombay Times about being a part of Bollywood and more.
Talking about commercial films, he said, “Hamare yahan joh commercial cinema hai… usmein the entire service of storytelling is put into the image of an actor. Then, the supporting actors also become a tool to serve his image and that is a problem.”  He added, “You are doomed if you are called a superstar, as you have to start serving that image which is not even permanent.”   However, the actor feels privileged in the film industry and says, “it took time to make people believe that I can tell a story and get audiences to the theatres. Earlier, I felt helpless, but I didn’t give into it. If you give attention to that emotion, it has the power to destroy you.”  The Times of  India : 14th. May,17
