Irrfan Khan The talented actor is admissibly sweating out for what he calls "the toughest role of my career".

Irrfan Khan is nowadays singularly devoted to director Tigmanshu Dhulia's film Paan Singh Tomar in which he plays a steeplechase runner.

The actor says 'Paan Singh Tomar' is the most physically and mentally demanding film he's done so far.




"You see, steeplechase is a far more complicated form of marathon. It demands a continuous rhythm as one runs and jumps. It's the most difficult task I've ever undertaken as an actor," Irrfan revealed to a news agency.

During the film's shooting, Irrfan is getting continuous guidance from steeplechase experts but the 46-year-old actor still has to stretch his body to its limit to look convincing as a long-distance steeplechase runner. And Irrfan is sparing no effort.

So immersed is he in his role that he has stopped signing any other films even though offers have been pouring in from Bollywood and Hollywood.

"There're lots of talks for new projects, both national and international. But I'm not signing anything. I have to devote all my time to getting the steeplechase right," says the actor who has worked in internationally acclaimed films like The Namesake and Slumdog Millionaire .

'Paan Singh Tomar' tells the story of an extremely talented runner who eventually turns into a dacoit and wreaks havoc in Chambal valley. The film is based on a real story.
