1) Lucius Fox- The Batman Series
Lucius Fox is not a man of many words and neither is Irrfan Khan. We’ve seen him showcase his expressions clearly without saying much in films like The Lunchbox, which makes us believe he would be perfect to play Batman’s confidante.
2) Harry Burns – When Harry Met Sally
With his charming portrayal of Rana in Piku, Irrfan Khan has only proved that he can tug a hearstring or two when it comes to romance! And the charismatic Harry Burns is clearly a winner for Irrfan.
3) Professor Lupin- Harry Potter Series
With his amazing tendency to add layers of complexity to his character, Irrfan is somehow perfect to play a professor who moonlights as a werewolf. Irrfan Khan as a professor of Defense against Dark Arts in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry would fit right in.
4) Detective Lt. William Somerset- Se7en
We’ve seen him play an FBI agent in the 2009 thriller New York and we’ve seen him play a cop a dozen times on screen. With his world-weariness and creepy intensity, Irrfan would be perfect to play the soon-to-retiring detective.
5) Captain Jack Sparrow – Pirates of the Caribbean
With Johnny Deep raising the bar high with his portrayal of the treacherous captain, the only actor who can almost live up to the expectations is Irrfan Khan. We all know he has a knack for portraying unusual characters and he will surely dominate the seven seas with his deadpan humor and unparalleled wit.
After seeing him portray an array of roles, we cannot wait to see Irrfan Khan add another feather to his cap by playing the flamboyant owner of the deadly Jurassic Park in his upcoming film. Jurassic World is set to hit theatres on June 11, 2015. Book your tickets here.
