Described by many as a versatile yet humble actor, Irrfan's journey to success wasn't always smooth sailing.
He first appeared in TV and theatre but these didn't really catapult him to success just yet.
Things started to look up when he starred in Vishal Bhardwaj's Maqbool which led him to the project 'The Namesake', an American film.
But it was Danny Boyle's 'Slumdog Millionaire' that changed everything. They won an Oscar for Best Ensemble cast, which opened a lot of doors for him.
Soon, he appeared in 'A Mighty Heart' alongside Angelina Jolie. Critics then praised his performance in the HBO series, 'In Treatment'.
He delivered a phenomenal performance in the critically acclaimed blockbuster, 'The Life of Pi' (where his son Ayaan appears in a brief role). He also has another young son named Babil.
The dad of two also starred in top grossing flicks such as 'The Amazing Spider-Man' and 'Jurassic World'.
