Talented actor Irrfan must have recently discovered the true meaning of the word ‘irony’. The actor, who was last seen playing the role of an athlete turned rebel in Paan Singh Tomar had dropped his last name ‘Khan’ as he did not want to be identified by his religion. However, his last name apparently does not seem to agree with this decision.
Sources claim that Irrfan, who will be next seen in a rural rom-com flick opposite Aditi Rao Hydari, will be playing a character named Fanney Khan in the movie! Producer Anjum Rizvi confirmed the news and was quoted to have said, "Irrfan plays a very entertaining character in the film. He plays a light-hearted fictitious character Fanney Khan, who is a member of a band that goes for weddings, where his character keeps wooing women."
Irrfan received rave reviews for his role in Tigmanshu Dhulia directed Paan Singh Tomar, which was based on the real life story of a national athlete, who becomes a rebel due to certain circumstances.
