Irfan and cricketer brother Yusuf Pathan have a joint foundation called Cricket Academy of Pathans, which is a self-funded project for the under-privileged children.
"We have a foundation- Cricket Academy of Pathans- and it is our dream project that we launched last year," Irfan said.

"It is a self funded project where we help under-privileged children... coach them, give them equipments and other things. So whatever funding I get from here, we will use it there," he said.
For Irfan, a self-confessed non-dancer, the challenge of grooving on a national platform made him sign 'Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa Reloaded'.

"This offer came to me and I took it as a challenge. It took time for me to accept the show... I took two-three months. I am a non-dancer. And this show is about the journey of non dancers and this thing attracted me to do the show," he said.
The all-rounder thinks if there is a fun element involved in a song then he enjoys it a bit more. He has started the rehearsals and he is having a tough time.

"It has just been two days since I started rehearsing and I am finding it difficult. I think hitting fours, sixes, playing cricket is easy. But that (cricket) is also difficult thing as you go out there and play the game," he said.
