The additional ‘r’ in his name Irrfan is not because of numerology as commonly perceived. He got his name changed in 2012 by adding an extra ‘r’ only because he liked the sound of it.
Irrfan Khan is a well gifted man in terms of height. He is about 6 ft 1 inch tall. So he very well fits into the category of Amitabh Bachhan and the likes.
Irrfan’s Lunchbox was one of the very few Indian movies to have won Grand Rail d’Or Award at the Cannes Film Festival. This was in the year 2013. His performance in the BAFTA Award nominated romance The Lunchbox (2013) earned him universal acclaim by the critics and audiences.
Among many of the awards that he has bagged, some notable ones are mentioned below
• National Film Award for the best actor in the 60th National Film Awards 2012 and a Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actor for his role in the movie Paan Singh Tomar.
• In 2014 he won the Asian Film Award for Best Actor.
