According to Aseem Chhabra's book, Irrfan Khan: The Man, The Dreamer, The Star, Irrfan Khan was once in an LA restaurant when he spotted Avengers actor Mark Ruffalo. This was right around the time when Slumdog Millionaire was renowned across the globe for winning several awards at the Oscars. The book details that Irrfan Khan wanted to talk to the Avengers actor but was unable to approach him. 

Irrfan was disappointed when he had to leave the restaurant without meeting Mark Ruffalo. However, right before he left, the Avengers actor spotted and recognized him. Mark Ruffalo then approached Irrfan Khan himself and put his hand forward. The Avengers actor then told Irrfan that he "loved" his work. According to Aditya Bhattacharya, who was dining with Irrfan at the time, the Angrezi Medium actor "probably saw sparkling lights all over" after his interaction with Ruffalo.
