After Irrfan Khan's demise, his team released a statement regarding the same.
“I trust, I have surrendered”; These were the some of the many words that Irrfan expressed in a heart felt 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 a 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 heaven 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”.
Irrfan Khan shot to fame with Mira Nair’s Academy-nominated Salaam Bombay in 1988. Since then he had won several awards and accolades for his performance. From National Award for his work in Paan Singh Tomar to other critically acclaimed awards for his films likes The Lunchbox, Talwar, Piku, and Hindi Medium, he earned it all in his lifetime of acting. He also worked in several Hollywood films which include the likes of Slumdog Millionaire, Jurassic World, and Inferno. May his soul rest in peace.
