Anoop Singh talks about the bond with the late actor as a director and a friend, saying that they worked together in ‘Song of Scorpions’. The reason for writing this book is to remember him as an actor. The book is about a good friend, an artist. The cover of the book has been designed by National Award winning filmmaker Gurvinder Singh of Anhe Ghore Da Daan and Chuthi Koot fame.
The book’s publisher has shared a note that Singh’s book offers an inside look at the working relationship between a director and an actor. This book will be officially released on February 14. Irrfan Khan is that person of Hindi cinema whom cinema lovers can never forget. He has worked in the industry for almost 30 years. Irrfan Khan did not come from a film background. He came from a middle class family. Irfan never wanted to become an actor, he wanted to become a cricketer.
Irfan used to work in theaters before joining films. He got an opportunity to work in Mira Nair’s ‘Salaam Bombay’. His small role was appreciated a lot by the people. His career got recognition from ‘Maqbool’. After that he never looked back. Actors were known for acting with their eyes.
