14 Best Irrfan Khan Movies

Irrfan Khan is one of the finest actors of the Bollywood Industry, who has not only proved his potential in Bollywood but also in Hollywood movies. It is a sad day for the whole world and a shock to lose such a decorated actor.

Irrfan Khan’s untimely death has brought sudden mourn to his fellow actors, family, friends, and fans.

He started his career in the late 80s in TV series, from where people started noticing him. He did a lot of TV series.

Irrfan Khan’s first debut movie was Salaam Bombay in 1988 by Mira Nair which was also nominated for Academy Awards, but he really got his taste of success after 2010, wherein most of the movies he played a protagonist.

In other words, he did his best work since the 80s but it’s been few years where he got his due credit both mentally and financially.

The best thing about his actor was even when his movies did not work out, his acting did every time.

Whether he had a small part to play in movies, but even a few minutes of his presence made a huge impact. When he is there, no space for other actors.
Being a huge fan I have sorted some of these best movies that you can binge-watch and where he is protagonist or has a maximum screen presence.

You can watch these movies in different platforms such as Youtube, Netflix, Amazon Prime Videos, etc.
