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.
I wanted my hair to be like #MithunChakraborty, so I used to go to a barber shop and tell them ke mere baal seedhe kar do …. because my hair were curly and kind of stiff .. Aur kya hota tha ke first day my hair would look good .. just like Mithuns, but after that they would turn into a bird’s nest ! #FilmyInfluence This picture is Day 1 just so you guys know 😉
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…
Though we weren’t allowed to watch cinema we used to watch a few movies .. and take pictures and weave a story around it… it would capture our minds … and it would be upto us and you to decipher what these stories would be! #FilmyInfluence Look at the guy – he is supposed to be dead. But he is smiling!
Hero toh banna hi tha! (Had to become a hero some day) #FilmyInfluence,” wrote Irrfan.
