After Being Attacked, Irrfan Khan’s Love for Kashmir is Still Uncompromised

Bollywood versatile actor Irrfan Khan, who was reportedly attacked with a kangri ( a pot filled with hot coal) in Kashmir recently while shooting for Vishal Bharadwaj’s next film Haider, says the incident didn’t make him fearful. The actor was shooting with Shahid Kapoor.


The kangri didn’t hit either of us. So, I can’t really say whether it was deliberately thrown at us with the intention to hurt or not,” Irrfan said.

However the actor and the team of Haider remain unfazed by the incident and the shooting continued on Tuesday.

Irrfan’s love for the beautiful valley is still uncompromised. He said; “The incident is not really scary. What is really scary is what the local Kashmiri people have suffered for decades.”

I shot one section of Vishal Bharadwaj’s Saat Khoon Maaf in Kashmir and I fell in love with the place. Then when Vishal offered me a cameo in Haider, I immediately accepted primarily for the pleasure of returning to the valley. Now, Vishal and I are planning another film to be shot here. This place is seductive and irresistible,” said the 47-year-old.
