'Hollywood recognition won’t necessarily get you good work here'

Wednesday, October 14, 2015

Irrfan Khan, who has been a part of many Hollywood films, says that getting good work back home is not due to his recognition abroad.

Irrfan got noticed globally for his performances in films like 'A Mighty Heart', 'The Namesake', 'Slumdog Millionaire', 'The Amazing SpiderMan', 'Life of Pi' and 'Jurassic World'.

"Hollywood projects have nothing to do with my career here. Definitely the perception of you as an actor has changed. It changes their perception in Hollywood too. But in Indian industry, it doesn't help to get you good work," said Irrfan Khan.

Irrfan, who is happy with the response to his latest releases — 'Talvar' and 'Jazbaa' — feels that there has been a change in perception of Indian actors being viewed by Hollywood filmmakers yesterday.

"The market has opened up for Indian stories and talent, technicians. It feels great to see Indian actors doing work there.. I am happy for Priyanka Chopra (the lead in American TV show 'Quantico')," he said.

When asked if he thinks that he got his due in the Hindi film industry a bit late, "I don’t think about that. I think we as actors are pressed for time. I don’t think I have enough time to think about these things.”

The things that add to my life or which makes me simpler and harmonious with life I give value to those things rather than complain or hold grudges."

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)Individual decisions regarding work could be biased. Seek the help or input of a senior person or a close associate. Joint ventures yield good results. An important career decision will have to be made. Conditions are favorable to send in fresh business proposals or quotations today. Your relationships in general are on the mend. But that does not mean that you can take it easy. Your constant charming behavior will help further bonding.
