For Irrfan, it's all about being famous

Irrfan, known as one of the best performers in the country, says as a child his only motive was to become famous and change people's perception of him. "I just wanted to become somebody. I wanted to change the perception of people towards me. That was the basic reason," said the actor, a known name thanks to his work in 'Namesake', 'Paan Singh Tomar', and 'Maqbool', to name a few. The 46-year-old, who was speaking at the launch of author Vikas Swarup's book 'Accidental Apprentice', added: "Initially, I wanted to become famous - be it a player or whatever. But I didn't get any support from my family." Irrfan states that the wide open field that acting is led him to pursue a career in Bollywood. "When I was a kid, I used to think that there are 11 players (in cricket) so there is a limitation. Then I thought actors can be many, there is no limit and you have to work on yourself as there is nobody to choose you and your talent can become a weapon. So, that's how I chose acting," he said. Irrfan will soon be seen in Tigmanshu Dhulia's 'Sahib, Biwi Aur Gangster Returns'.
