Actor Irrfan Khan is a Bollywood star who has also appeared in many films from Hollywood, he has worked with Mira Nair, Wes Anderson and Ang Lee and given Oscar-winners (Slumdog Millionaire) and blockbusters (Jurassic World) alike. But the actor has his life put on hold as he undergoes treatment in London for a neuroendocrine tumor, a rare form of cancer.

Although Irrfan Khan’s life now is very different from only a few months ago, he still has movies that he worked on as recently last year coming out, including Puzzle, a poignant character drama expanding to 11 US cities this weekend.

The indie film from Oscar-nominated producer Marc Turtletaub (Little Miss Sunshine) is about a stifled suburban housewife, played by Kelly Macdonald, who forms a connection with a more cosmopolitan man, (Irrfan Khan), over a shared interest in puzzles. The 51-year-old actor is proud of the film and eager to share about it, but he knows how unpredictable his life has become.

Puzzle is appreciated by those who have seen it, the actor says he was looking for something for a long time in American cinema, Hollywood cinema. He has been reaching for this, for a personal experience, something which is unknown. The character he plays had complexity and a strange unpredictability.
