Irrfan Khan is considered one of Indian cinema's most versatile actors, as well as India's most popular export to the West. The 48-year-old was recently seen in Piku as well as Hollywood blockbuster Jurassic World, playing a taxi-stand owner in one and an eccentric billionaire in another.
But when was the last time we saw Khan in a generic Bollywood 'party song', the kind that nearly every 'youth-oriented' Bollywood film seems to have nowadays?
The answer was 'never' until this video by comedy collective All India Bakchod came out on Monday morning. 'Every Bollywood Party Song' begins with AIB's members trying to convince an exaggeratedly arrogant Khan that he should try doing one of these numbers since they aren't exactly a hallmark of his regular feature film work.
The lyrics of the song, based on the tune of Yo Yo Honey Singh's runaway hit 'Party All Night' from Boss (2013), satirise the Hindi film industry's unimaginative and misogynistic leanings that often become apparent in the picturisations of such songs. Khan, who is seen wearing uncharacteristically blingy costumes and performing generic dance moves, maintains a hilariously deadpan expression throughout the video.
