Irrfan Khan is happy and honoured that his performance in “Piku” won him the best actor award at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne (IFFM) 2015.
Irrfan played Rana, the owner of a taxi service in the Shoojit Sircar-directed slice-of-life movie. The actor calls “Piku” one of the best roles in his career.
“It is an absolute honour, I am so glad that the film has won hearts all over. Rana is definitely indebted to the audience. This is another important character role of my life for which I am overwhelmed that it received a response like this,” the actor said in a statement.
The “Jurassic World” star could not attend the ceremony in Melbourne as he is currently in Japan to shoot for a TV show, set after the World War II.
