20 Roles Played By Irrfan Which Prove He Is Not Just A Character, But Magic On Screen!

Sahabzaade Irrfan Ali Khan aka Irrfan.

The Khan, who is a global star already, dropped the Khan off his name when he entered the film industry. As he wanted people to know him by his name and not by his surname. And, ever since then he has delivered exceptional performances one after the other and it is next to impossible to choose which one has been his best role, so far.

Here are 20 of his best roles.

1. Not only did he ace the negative role and bag a Filmfare award for it, but Irrfan acted so convincingly that he made people hate him.
