Interestingly, Irrfan Khan turns producer this year. Moreover, the actor, who recently won a National Award for his role in Paan Singh Tomar, confirms that he is co-producing a film called Lunchbox with Anurag Kashyap.
When he heard the script he was completely moved by it which is a story of two lonely people in the city connected by letters and that he wanted to be associated with this project in a larger capacity than as an actor.
In fact, Irrfan is now in the process of locking in another production which involves him, his wife Sutapa and Shailesh Haribhakti of DAR films. They have been been working on the project for nine months and will soon lock in the director.
Irrfan makes it clear he is not into production to boost his acting prospects and he don’t need to produce films to give himself opportunities as an actor. Rather he will produce films where he may or may not be associated as an actor.
That's from an actor to a producer!
