In the Academy-winning film Life of Pi, Irrfan Khan had said: “Even when God seemed to have abandoned me, he was watching. Even when he seemed indifferent to my sufferings, he was watching. And, when I was beyond all hope of saving, he gave me rest. That gave me a sign to continue my journey.” The actor spoke about having hope and God’s help.
