- Irrfan Khan’s Slumdog Millionaire
- Director of Slumdog Millionaire wanted to cast Shahrukh Khan
Talented actor Irrfan Khan, who said goodbye to the world in the year 2020, was not a national but an international star. He not only had hit films in India but Hollywood films were also blockbusters. One such film of this global star, made with a budget of Rs 124 crore, had earned Rs 3145 crore worldwide. Not just one or two but many Indian actors were involved in this film. But the name of this film was such that people did not like it and there was a lot of controversy. However, it had no impact on the success of this blockbuster film. Don’t know which Irrfan Khan’s film this is.
Actually, we are talking about the film Slumdog Millionaire, released on January 23, 2009, whose songs are famous all over the world and the film is also a well-known name. This film was directed by Danny Boyle. Dev Patel, Freida Pinto, Rubina Ali, Madhur Mittal, Anil Kapoor and Irrfan Khan were seen in important roles.
It is said that when audiences objected that the term “slumdog” sounded racist, director Danny Boyle explained that it was not. The word is a combination of Jamal’s dual status as a slum dweller and a Dalit. However, the film later received a lot of love. Not only this, there is an incident related to this film that director Danny wanted to cast Shahrukh Khan as a game show host. But this could not happen. Then Anil Kapoor got this role.
It is noteworthy that Shahrukh Khan has hosted superstar Amitabh Bachchan’s game show Kaun Banega Crorepati, due to which the director of Slumdog Millionaire wanted to give him the role.
