Irrfan Khan was one such actor who never believed in discussing on how his films did in terms of box office collection. He had stated, “It’s not a product ki itne ka sell hogaya toh itne ka aap worth ho. It’s an experience. Sometimes some stories are not made to make that kind of money,” reports The Quint. Haasil, Maqbool, Paan Singh Tomar, The Lunchbox, The Warrior, Slumdog Millionaire are some of the Hindi and international films for which Irrfan Khan will always be remembered.
