Versatile actor Irrfan Khan , known for his power-packed performances in films like Maqbool , 'Haasil', and The Namesake , believes the face of Indian cinema is changing and finds the current lot of actors lucky to be part of the golden phase.

"The current phase of Indian cinema is very interesting. Change in audience mindset has set the popular demand for more experimental and different kind of roles, which were not essayed in the past. I found myself fortunate enough that my contribution is also being counted in this change in the industry," the actor, who also got appreciation for his acting skills in Hollywood films said in New Delhi Wednesday.

There are no set patterns to make a commercial successful movie, the Filmfare award winner says.

"One can't fool discerning audience that has the understanding of the cinema. And in the present scenario, repetition of the old definitions of hero and villain will not work. There should be something to match viewer's' imagination," he says.

"Even a large part of audience are not ready to compromise and want to see what they have seen all life. So the perspective needs to be changed and the visual medium can be of a great help by making films with a realistic approach," the Metro actor says.

Talking about his just released Mumbai Meri Jaan he says, "The story is very touching. We have tried to depict that how a miscreant doesn't understand about the impact they create in the minds of innocent persons by doing irresponsible acts."

Irrfan is also hopeful about his film with Shahrukh Khan named Billoo Barber .

Another movie of his is based on a real life character 'Paan Singh Tomar' with director Tigmanshu Dhulia. This is a story about an athlete who won award for the country and later turned dacoit and was killed in an encounter.

"In my forthcoming films, I am working with Sanjay Gupta in Acid Factory and Alibaug . In movie Dil Kabaddi I am doing an interesting character where "dishonesty in relationships" is the key subject," says Irrfan.

Tigmanshu Dhulia, the director who cast him in 'Haasil' and now 'Paan Singh Tomar', says, "He is basically a method actor who believes in being realistic. He has given life to the characters in my films and got rave reviews too."

Irrfan, however says, "Everybody has some kind of method. Amitji ( Amitabh Bachchan ) has one method and Dharamji has other kind of method. The important thing for an actor is that how he portrays his character and in how many layers of him is being brought forward and how smoothly it has been transferred to audience's mind."
