Everyone knows about Irrfan Khan’s acting career, but did you know that he was once a cricketer too? Before becoming a great actor, Irrfan had a dream to make a career in cricket. However, he had to give up his dream of becoming a cricketer, as he did not have the capacity to deposit Rs 600 for cricket at that time. It has been claimed in some media reports that in the year 2014, Irrfan Khan gave an interview to The Telegraph.

In this interview, he recalled the days of struggle when he had to retire from his cricketing career despite being selected to play in the Col CK Nayudu Trophy (Under-23) organized by the BCCI. According to the report, Irfan had said – I used to play cricket. I wanted to become a cricketer. I was an all-rounder and the youngest in my Jaipur team. I wanted to make my career in this.

According to the report, the actor had further said – I was selected for the Colonel CK Nayudu tournament and at that time I needed money. I didn’t know whom to ask. That day I decided that I would not pursue a career in it. I could not even ask for 600 rupees at that time. When I needed Rs 300 for the National School of Drama, it was difficult for me to arrange. My sister finally arranged for me. Quitting cricket was a deliberate decision. There are only 11 players in the whole country. There is no limit in actors. There is no age limit in acting, the harder you work, the more success you will get. You are your own weapon.
