What do Matt Damon, Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Leonardo DiCaprio, Christopher Nolan and Ridley Scott have in common? Once Irfan Khan rejected them all, some more than once.
Irfan, India’s largest export to Hollywood, includes films such as Title, Life P, Inferno, The Amazing Spider-Man and Jurassic World. In total, Irfan’s films have earned an astonishing $3.6 billion worldwide by 2017.
His international appeal and amazing talent make him a popular choice for some of the world’s greatest filmmakers. But over the years, Irfan has abandoned a number of them for various reasons. Recently the actor said no to Stephen Spielberg because of a secret project that could be the Robopocalypse. Irfan would appear in the film with Scarlett Johansson. I didn’t feel that the character I was being offered many possibilities. So I said no, even though Scarlett Johansson is an actress with whom I want to share the screen space, he said in an interview with NDTV.

Earlier, Irfan regretted the rejection of Christopher Nolan, who had given him a role in the science fiction film Interstellar 2016. Although it is not clear what role Irfan should have played, it could have been a David Gyasi or Matt Damon character. They expected me to be very dedicated. I was going to stay in the United States for four months in a row. I tried to make my own schedule and suggested that I could take the shuttle bus from India to the United States because I couldn’t stay there that long. I wanted to be here for the Breakfast Box and D-Day. They couldn’t let that happen. I don’t tend to regret what I do, but knowing that this is Christopher Nolan’s film, I can say that it’s one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever made, he said in an interview with the Times of India.

But Nolan and Spielberg are not the only legendary directors that Irfan has had to give up. Ridley Scott has the unique ability to offer the actor more than one role, to make sure that not everything coincides. I had hoped to go to Martian and Peak, but the calendar wouldn’t allow it. I hope to work with Ridley Scott again. That was the second mistake, because I had to work with him in the bodies that lay before, but that didn’t work either, Irfan told Today. While the role offered to him in Martian eventually changed to Chiwetel Ejiofor, Mark Strong took on the role of Tele Lie where Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe starred.
