7 Life Lessons By Irrfan Khan:


According to Irrfan Khan, the comfort zone is the killer of success.
As he is an actor, he tells that working with the same director every time does not let you to grow, Irrfan Khan says 
“If you are in a comfort zone then it becomes very difficult to come out of your comfort zone and I dont like to get into the comfort zone”


KEY: You should never stay in your comfort zone because when you are comfortable with what you have, you will never chase great things in your life. There is a quote saying:

Be happy with what you have but never get comfortable with it


When Irrfan Khan entered the cinema field.It was very tough for him as many people had very different bad thoughts about cinema, even his mom told him that if he wants to join the cinema he first have to marry, and then only he can join cinema.
Irrfan Khan refused to get married and told his mother that he wants to completely focus on one thing that is cinema and he can not divide his attention.
KEY: When you are pursuing your dream, you will get many naysayers but you should stick to your goal, to your dream.You should not think what other people will think of you!


When Irrfan Khan started doing various category roles, his industry friends used to criticize a lot.
Irrfan Khan says that what his friends wanted him is to “Find a niche and stick to it” but Irrfan Khan had different beliefs he always wanted to try something new always and never to get bored from his career.
KEY: Always try something new, never ever get comfortable with what you are now, and what you have, always set your goal higher!


Irrfan Khan strongly states that,
“Money is always the by product for him and he did not join the cinema industry for money.He joined it because of his passion for cinema”



KEY: Money is always a byproduct” this statement is also supported by Sir Ratan Tata, you should never focus on money instead you should focus on values, commitment, and on your passion.

When Irrfan Khan started his career, he says that,

He never thought of any strategy that he will use rather, he will focus on his work and being true and authentic always and let his work speak and never expect anything in return.”



KEY: The best way to answer to your haters is to answer them with your work. There is a quote saying,
“Work in your silence and let your success makes some noise”


Irrfan Khan says that when you are doing something you like, make sure you give your all and not just do it for the sake of its completion.
He says that,
You have to be sincere and sometimes your work doesn’t pay you as what you expected but trust yourself because its a long term commitment and the good thing takes time”

KEY: You must know that many people work on their passion but only a few succeed.The only reason is persistence. Only a few people are persistent in their goals and hence only a few people become successful.



Irrfan khan shares his dark time in this video.He feels that everything happens for a reason and everything happens to you to make you stronger and to prepare you for achieving your goal.

KEY: Sometimes you expect something else and you get something else but don’t get demotivated because God has better plans for you and just keep going!

Always remember: “Every cloud has a silver lining
