Adarsh Gourav on Irrfan Khan: His legacy can never be replaced

Mumbai, April 27 (IANS) Actor Adarsh Gourav, who earned the global spotlight with his performance of Balram Halwai in “The White Tiger”, downplays all comparison certain sections of fans and the media have drawn between him and the late Irrfan Khan, who made a mark in Hollywood with a series of good roles. Adarsh says the legacy of Irrfan can never be replaced.

Irrfan had garnered global recognition with his performance in Mira Nair’s “The Namesake”, adapted from the novel of the same name by Jhumpa Lahiri. Adarsh shot to fame starring in “The White Tiger”, adapted from Aravind Adiga’s Man Booker Prize-winning novel of the same name.

“Comparisons of me with Irrfan sir is a huge deal, but I don’t think that his legacy can ever be replaced. Not by me, not by anyone. That’s just how it is. Period,” said Adarsh, while opening up on the subject.

“The White Tiger” was nominated in the 93rd Academy Awards in the Best Adapted Screenplay category but lost to “The Father”.
