Sahabzaade Irrfan Ali Khan as once known but now known as just Irrfan to the whole world. The talented actor has shattered stereotypes and risen to the fame.
He was asked on M Bole Toh with RJ Mallishka, as to who would he gift his Khan surname, as he dropped it and it is one surname people, would kill to have.
He replied, “To no one. I will suggest everyone to remove their surnames. I just started realizing certain things in my life. As to how we are conditioned in a certain way with our background, with our genetic things, with our parents, with our teachings, with our schools. You know how they have formed me and where is me really, I don’t know. So I was wondering about all these things and there was comparison that I am nowhere in life and suddenly a film of mine is releasing. And someone remarked, ‘Oh! So you are another Khan’ And I used to feel strange about it. That time I wanted to wash everything off my path. Not relationships but conditionings. Instinctively, I removed the Khan from my name.”
