Irrfan Khan's career is going great guns. While Sunday didn't quite set the box office on fire, his equity has been rising constantly. And now Irrfan is in multiple-movie deals with two leading production houses.
"That's right," informs Irrfan. "While I'm committed to do two films with UTV, I've signed a deal for several films with Sanjay Gupta. In addition to this, I'm also doing a film with Milan Luthria, the director whom I've admired for a long time."
It does look like a full plate for Irrfan in 2008. "It is! And I'm happy to be working in all kinds of films from a comedy like Rakesh Roshan's Krazzy 4 to a drama like Sunny Deol's Right Ya Wrong. I like the idea of doing films with big banners because you're ensured high visibility. I'm enjoying this new phase where I'm working with people like Sunny and Mr. Rakesh Roshan for the first time."
Not that Irrfan has forgotten his authentic roots. "In Nishikant Kamath's Mumbai Meri Jaan, I play a South -Indian coffee seller on the roads. That's as real as it gets," informs Irrfan.
