One man can’t change the system: Irrfan Khan



After meeting Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday, actor Irrfan Khan said he has realised that politicians have their own challenges, and that “one man can’t change the system”.

Irrfan said “everyone will have to come together” to bring about the changes they want to see.

The actor met the Aam Aadmi Party supremo as part of the promotional activity for his film “Madaari”, and talked about how the political world has changed and about freedom of expression in India.

After the meeting, the actor, who had also met and interviewed RJD chief Lalu Prasad last week, told media here: “We understood that those who are running the system have their own challenges. One man can’t change the system. Everyone will have to come together.”

“Madaari”, which explores a father-son relationship and traces the plight of a common man who loses his son in an accident, also features Jimmy Sheirgill in a pivotal role. The film, which is slated to release on Friday, also highlights the political system of the nation.

Irrfan, who is a name to reckon with in the Indian as well as international entertainment world, shared that “Prime Minister Narendra Modi has asked for the hard copy of the letter to know what we are talking about, so we are getting that ready. If he invites, then we will go there.”
