Irrfan Khan turns 47: To throw party for the first time

By Subhash K. Jha, Mumbai, Jan 13 : Irrfan Khan, who recently turned 47, bends rules this year and is all set to throw a bash as soon as his friends are back in town.


He feels there's a lot to celebrate this year.

"Last year was very satisfying for me. 'The Lunchbox' got me trmenedous praise. The film continues to make waves in various parts of the world. I also turned producer with 'The Lunchbox'. So, I'd say this birthday I feel very fulfilled," said the actor.

This chameleon actor doesn't believe in birthdays. One reason for his apathy to his special day is the fact that the internet for a very long time gave out the wrong date for his birthday.

"I'd get calls on the wrong day. That was very annoying. That doesn't mean I'm against birthday celebrations. In fact, I am going to have a party for the first time this year for my birthday. I am waiting for my friends from abroad to arrive," said Irrfan.

His birthday was on Jan 7 and he was on the sets of Nishikant Kamath's new film.

Said Irrfan: "I was working on my birthday. To me, that's the best way to celebrate. For years, I waited for the right roles. Now when they're coming to me, I feel privileged, blessed, relieved and liberated."

"In the evening on my birthday, I went to the Screen Awards' nomination party where I was nominated for the best actor for 'The Lunchbox'. That to me, was the best birthday gift possible."

One wonders how Irrfan manages to look 40 at 47!

And he laughed and said: "I do look after myself. But not in an obsessive way. I workout, but in my own way. I follow the regime that my body demands and not what the physical trainer thinks my body requires. Besides that, I think I am getting to do the work that I want. Inner contentment always reflects on your face and body."
