Irrfan Khan’s films to be showcased at Mumbai cultural centre to commemorate his birth month

Commemorating late actor Irrfan Khan’s birth month, a retrospective of his films will be held at the G5A Cinema House in Mumbai.

Over three days, from January 26th to 28th, the showcase will highlight Irrfan's most memorable films, including classics like The LunchboxPaan Singh Tomar, and Mira Nair’s The Namesake. Additionally, audience favourites such as PikuQarib Qarib Singlle, and Talvar will also be included.

Sharing her thoughts on the retrospective, writer, actor and Irrfan’s wife Sutapa Sikdar said, “I remember when he left us, my only desire was to celebrate him every day, in every way. When G5A Cinema House and Nikkhil Advani got in touch with me to do a retrospective, I was more than happy. What better way to remember him than celebrating his work.”

Nikkhil Advani, filmmaker and advisory council member, G5A, said: “I have always said that Irrfan changed the way I approached directing a scene, telling a story. If my film D-Day (2013) is considered to be a milestone in my career, a large part of that has to be my collaboration with him. He made every performance so lyrical and effortless. I am thrilled that we have been able to curate his most special films for the retrospective at G5A Cinema House.”

Irrfan, born on January 7, 1967, passed away due to a colon infection caused by neuroendocrine cancer on April 29, 2020.
