Billu and Hindi Medium
Giving back-to-back hits with intensely impacted acting skills, Irrfan Khan would have been celebrating his 55th birthday today. Despite the fact that we no longer have this iconic actor, his films have stood the test of time and serve as a warning not to ignore him. We regret the actor's untimely passing in 2020, however today on the occasion of his birth anniversary we have listed down 5 films of the star that you can binge watch on today.
In The Lunchbox, when a dabbawala's error links a young housewife to an elderly guy who is approaching the end of his days. The movie shows how their romance develops over thoughtfully packed lunchboxes and letters they exchange. The audience was intrigued by the intriguing plot and superb performances by Irrfan Khan and Nimrat Kaur in the key roles.
Hindi Medium is a never-ending tale of aspirations, guilt, and resistance. The audience was moved by the film, and Irrfan was once again praised for his portrayal of a loving Indian father who would sacrifice anything for his children. Angrezi Medium, the talented actor's final theatrical release, came after the movie.
"Slumdog Millionaire" directed by Danny Boyle, was set in Mumbai's Juhu slums. In the movie, Irrfan portrayed a police inspector and won million of hearts. While the film, won the Best Motion Picture Oscar at the 81st Academy Awards in 2009. Every Indian experienced chills at that very moment.
Saying that Piku is both Irrfan Khan and Deepika Padukone's most memorable movie is not an exaggeration. Irrfan portrayed the impatient yet shrewd businessman Rana Chaudhary, who offers the protagonist some relief and stability in his life. Even if his part isn't as detailed as Deepika's, the moment Irrfan Khan leaves the movie, you will begin to miss him on screen.
The story takes place in a small village where Billu (Irfan Khan), a barber, struggles to make ends meet on a daily basis. Despite all of his difficulties, he manages to survive by revealing his relationship with a movie star played by Shah Rukh Khan. He fails to convince the villagers of this and is ultimately cornered. Irrfan recevied heaps of praises from all quarters.
We wish he would have been here today so we could have witnessed his cinematic brillance.

Irfan Khan left a void that will never be filled in Hindi cinema 😞 I was heart broken when I heard that he died and the pangs still remain at this huge loss of talent and passion.
