Akali Dal leader Manjinder S Sirsa on Wednesday condoled the death of Actor Irrfan Khan who has died at the age of 53, after being admitted to Mumbai’s Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital, where was under observation for colon infection. Taking to Twitter, Sirsa wrote, "India lost a super talented actor and a wonderful human being. May Waheguru bless his soul!"

The actor in 2018 had announced that he’d been diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumour. 

Irrfan Khan's team announces actor's demise:

“I trust, I have surrendered”; These were the some of the many words that Irrfan expressed in a heartfelt note he wrote in 2018 opening up about his fight with cancer. And a man of few words and an actor of silent expressions with his deep eyes and his memorable actions on screen. It’s saddening that this day, we have to bring forward the news of him passing away. Irrfan was a strong soul, someone who fought till the very end and always inspired everyone who came close to him. After having been struck by lightning in 2018 with the news of rare cancer, he took life soon after as it came and he fought the many battles that came with it. Surrounded by his love, his family for whom he most cared about, he left for heavenly abode, leaving behind truly a legacy of his own. We all pray and hope that he is at peace. And to resonate and part with his words he had said, “As if I was tasting life for the first time, the magical side of it”.
