I’ll never do films only for money: Irrfan Khan


By Hindustan Times

Actor Irrfan Khan, who had his first solo hit in Bollywood with Pan Singh Tomar, says he is in no hurry to sign new films.

“Big bucks can entice anyone but I don’t want to end up doing films just for monetary reasons,” said the 49-year-old actor adding, “When you do a film for money, the cash flow does look good but the journey is really a painful experience. I’d rather earn less than do films where I stay frustrated and irritated on the sets.”

Talking about his ideals, the actor, who is returning with Tigmanshu Dhulia for the sequel of Sahib, Biwi Aur Gangster 2 further said, “I would rather strive for a situation where I can do the kind of work I can do and earn money for the producers and myself. That’s my goal.”

On the Hollywood front, Irrfan will be seen playing the character of Dr Ratha in The Amazing Spider-Man that’s slated to release this summer. “Let’s see how the character is placed in the story. There is no point talking about it now when I am yet to see the final cut,” said Irrfan, who will also be seen in Ang Lee’s 3D film The Life Of Pi that releases by the end of this year.
