Shabzade irfan khan dog
  • Irrfan Khan loves to raise animals and said during an interview he said “Dad always used to take us along when he went hunting. For us it was adventurous; but when I went with my sister or my little brother, it was a bit traumatic because evebn though we enjoyed the mystery of the jungle and being in a new environment when a wild animal was ultimately killed we used to imagine what would happen to the animal’s family or its mother. We used to create an emotional connect with the animal. I learnt how to use the rifle, but I never hunted with it. I also strangely did not eat non-vegetarian food; maybe I didn’t enjoy the taste
