LIFE OF PI

IRFAN KHAN (Adult Pi Patel) is a graduate of the prestigious National School of Drama (New Delhi, India) and was recently honored by the Indian government with a 2011 Padma Shri award recognizing his contributions to the Indian Cinema. Shortly after he made his acting debut in Salaam Bombay! (1988), he moved to Mumbai to pursue his career in acting. He then became a household name on the television screen in the popular Hindi sitcom "Banegi Apni Baat.”

Most Hindi movie actors disappear when they hit middle age, but Khan arrived at an age when others retire. His unconventional looks and intense eyes gained him the coveted title role in the film Maqbool, a Hindi interpretation of Macbeth set in the Bombay underworld. Khan's stunning performance as Maqbool won all the major Indian acting awards. He garnered further awards for his portrayal of a student leader who rises from nowhere but falters before he can reach his pinnacle in Haasil (2003), a love story set against university politics (Allahabad). Critics hailed it as a rare performance in Hindi cinema.

Khan's most challenging role came in British director Asif Kapadia's acclaimed The Warrior, winner of the BAFTA award for Best Film in 2003. Khan plays a lone warrior who renounces his violent role as the law enforcer to a local lord, only to be murderously pursued into the Himalayan Mountains.

Kahn has a lengthy list of credits from his consistently excellent work in Indian cinema, but he has recently made the transition into English language films. He recently appeared in Partition, directed by Vic Sarin and A Mighty Heart for Michael Winterbottom, opposite Angelina Jolie. Earlier this year, he appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man.
