Kareena Kapoor is one of the few actresses to have worked with all the Khans of Bollywood. She has worked with Badshah Shah Rukh Khan (Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, Aśoka, Ra.One, Don), the perfectionist Aamir Khan (3 Idiots, Talaash), bhaijaan Salman Khan (Bodyguard, Kyon Ki, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Main Aurr Mrs Khanna) and not to forget her husband Saif Ali Khan (LOC Kargil, Tashan, Agent Vinod, Kurbaan). Yet, Begum Khan doesn't think any of them, including Saif, is big enough when compared to this Khan!
And no, it's not her son Taimur Ali Khan. It's actually Irrfan Khan.
During a recent interview with IANS, Bebo was asked who the biggest Khan in Bollywood is, and to everyone's surprise, she had a different answer than what we expected. She said for her, it's Hindi Medium actor Irrfan Khan, someone who the 38-year-old actress still hasn't worked with yet, but has waited a long time to be fortunate enough to.
Irrfan Khan has just returned from the USA after a year-long battle with Neuroendocrine Tumor, a rare type of cancer, and is back on set to resume his next Angrezi Medium. Sequel to the hit film Hindi Medium, Irrfan is playing the role of Champak ji, who is a sweet vendor in Udaipur, Rajasthan. The makers of the film shared this picture on Instagram and captioned, "Champakji is 'sweet' like that! 😉."
For the first time, Kareena will be sharing screen-space with her favourite Khan in Angrezi Medium, in which she's playing a cop. She told the news agency, "Oh God, I am super excited for this film. I have worked with all the Khans - Shah Rukh, Salman, Aamir and Saif. But for me, it is an honour and privilege to work with Irrfan Khan. He is the pioneer, one of the finest actors among all the Khans if I may say, and he is the biggest Khan for me. So, I had to tick that box of acting with Irrfan Khan."
She just wrapped up shooting for her upcoming film Good News that co-stars Akshay Kumar, Diljit Dosanjh and Kiara Advani.

The Veere Di Wedding actress is all set to start shooting for the Irrfan Khan-starrer from May 15. "I know it is a small role but that does not matter. I know I am too excited, and I am really looking forward to this one,” she added.
