National Awards are important: Irrfan

Mumbai, March 28 : Irrfan is elated by the National Award for best actor for his performance in "Paan Singh Tomar" (PST), but says the prestigious award has come his way after several disappointments.

Directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia, the film saw Irrfan playing Paan Singh Tomar, a former national steeplechase champion-turned-bandit.

"I thought I should have got it for 'Haasil', which was my first film with Tigmanshu Dhulia. Then I thought I'd get it for Mira Nair's 'The Namesake'. So it has been a fairly lengthy time-span of disappointments," said Irrfan.

Entertainment should reflect society: Irrfan

Mumbai, Feb 26 : Entertainment is not just time pass; it should "reflect the society that we live in", says seasoned actor Irrfan who is working with the motto of challenging the definition of entertainment.

A name to reckon with in the international arena thanks to his powerful performances in "The Namesake" and Oscar winning films "Slumdog Millionaire" and "Life of Pi", Irrfan is equally respected on home turf for his extraordinary work in "Maqbool" and "Paan Singh Tomar".
