Irrfan talks about his Hollywood projects Puzzle and The Song of Scorpions
Irrfan Khan who is currently in New York shooting for his next Hollywood film, Marc Turtletaubrsquo;s Puzzle with Kelly Macdonald and David Denman, talks about how New Your is one of his favourite cities as it has something different to offer to every individual.
ldquo;I donrsquo;t think I can ever get bored or have enough of New York. I keep coming back to it and every time I find something new to explore. I took long walks in the parks, had great conversations with my crew and channelled by inner hipster walking the streets and sipping coffee. I managed to do some writing and some relaxing, discovering life as an actor on-the-go,rdquo; says Irrfan.
The actor is also shooting for Anup Singhrsquo;s The Song of Scorpions, which revolves around the story of a camel trader from Tonk, near Jaipur in Rajasthan who falls in love with a local woman. Since such relationships are a taboo in the deserts, it convinced Irrfan to do the film. He justifies saying, ldquo;I get bored if I repeat myself, so I try to find something new to keep the journey exciting. Anup is an extremely talented director and a greater visual artist. He has crafted a heart-warming tale of love interspersed with some beautiful music which I was immediately drawn to it.rdquo;
Irrfan as we know is very found of his native state, Rajasthan and this film makes him feel more connected to the same and wishes the tourism to flourish aswell.ldquo;Rajasthan intrigues and fascinates everyone and Anuprsquo;s capture only escalates the feeling further. The Song of Scorpions should attract everyone to Rajasthan,rdquo; he states.
When asked about his film Puzzle, which is an adaptation of an Argentine film Rompecabezas. It has a 40-year-old woman who has a gift for assembling puzzles apparently. The actor said further added, ldquo;The unique female-oriented script of Puzzle drew me to it. I was waiting for a Hollywood subject like this. It has come to me after a long time. It offers new challenges to me as an actor.rdquo;
