Written by Shruti Misra

Actor Irrfan Khan, who was lately seen in Hindi Medium, has made his debut on Instagram. He shared some pictures of his earlier days in which he was seen recreating some iconic poses from Bollywood.

The 50-year-old actor posted two black-and-white pictures on his recently created photo sharing account.

This is our poster inspired by the #Sholay poster. #FilmyInfluence

A post shared by Irrfan (@irrfan) on

The first picture shows Irrfan and a friend mimicking the classic “Sholay” pose where veteran actor Dharmendra sits on a whistling Amitabh Bachchan’s shoulders and plays the harmonica.

The “Hindi Medium” actor captioned the image as, “This is our poster inspired by the #Sholay poster. #FilmyInfluence.”

In the second photograph, Irrfan can be seen riding a horse, dressed up like India’s first superstar, Rajesh Khanna.

Somebody told me that to be an actor you must know horse riding… So whenever I went to ride (or learn to ride – which I didn’t at that time), I made it a point that when I sat on the horse… My look would be inspired by Rajesh Khannaji…

Hero toh banna hi tha! (Had to become a hero some day) #FilmyInfluence,” wrote Irrfan.
