Want to make films I believe in: Irrfan
Mumbai: National award-winning actor Irrfan Khan says his basic intent behind turning producer was to wield the ability to churn out quality films.
Irrfan, 46, has co-produced the critically acclaimed The Lunchbox. Releasing on September 20, the film is presented by Karan Johar and UTV, in association with Dar Motion Pictures and the National Film Development Corporation.
“You do come across films you want to have a control over right till they hit the screens. Many a times you do films and then they get unnoticed due to small release, lack of promotions etc. There are times when you get movies you really don’t want to do but the story is good and you do it,” Irrfan said.
“With my own production house, my intent is to do the kind of films I want to do without having to wait for such a film to come your way,” he said.
Asked him what are the kind of roles he would like to play on screen, Irrfan says, “I am desperately waiting to do a good comedy film. Also I want to make a trilogy in sports, I want to do romance. There are ample of things (roles) left to be done.”
Johar is presenting this film and Irrfan feels the filmmaker will become more famous by lending his name to this project.
“He (Karan Johar) came on board because he liked the film,” Irrfan said.
