He is one of the few Indian actors with international projects like “Slumdog Millionaire” and “The Amazing Spider-Man” to his credit, but Irrfan Khan doesn’t believe in blowing his own trumpet. He says he hates the idea of bragging, and lets his work speak.
Asked why, he said: “I don’t brag about it because I don’t like bragging. I hate bragging. I don’t enjoy bragging. Sometimes people have an attitude that bragging brings something to them, but I don’t want to achieve anything from bragging. I don’t like that.”
At a press conference here Thursday, ahead of the movie’s release, Irrfan said he speaks only when important.
“I definitely do publicity for a film where I feel it is necessary, where I am excited about it, where I feel they need me… I go and do it. But I would like to be in a situation, where I don’t have to do publicity for a film and people understand there is something special about it themselves. The audiences are not fools, they can smell films,” he said.
“The Amazing Spider-Man”, in which he plays Dr. Ratha, is set to release in India June 29.
