Irrfan Khan passed away on April 29, 2020, at the age of 53 due to colon infection. Only his close friends could attend the funeral as it was conducted amidst the nationwide lockdown. As things are easing now, a fan of the late actor visited his grave and read his biography by Aseem Chhabra, which left the author in tears.
A user named Samar Iresh Gupta took to his Instagram handle to share that he has visited Irrfan Khan’s grave. He uploaded a picture of the tombstone, which has "Late. Sahabzade Irfan Ali Khan", written over it. Samar also shared that he read the introduction of IRRFAN KHAN: THE MAN, THE DREAMER, THE STAR, a book written by Aseem Chhabra. Take a look at his post.
#irrfan Aaj kabristan gaya. Late. Sahabzade Irfan Ali Khan se milne. Boht waqt se mann tha, par jaanta nahi tha ki yeh mumkin hai. Par aaj gya, aur mulaakat hui. Jiss din unke jaane ki khabar aayi, main boht roya, bebass mehsoos hua. Aaj roya nahi, bas unke saath waqt bitaya. Do hafte pehle main Bombay lauta. Jab maine @iamroysanyal ki post padhi ki vo bhi Irfan se milkar aaye, toh maine unse pta poocha, aur chala gya. Unke bete @babil.i.k ne bhi likha tha. Main apni diary saath lekar gaya tha aur maine unko vo nazm padhkar sunayi jo maine uss din unke jaane ke baad likhi thi - "tum jaldi chale gaye irfan." Maine @chhabs2 ki likhi hui Irrfan ki kitaab June mein mangwayi thi, par aajtak uska ek bhi panna nahi padh paaya tha. Kyunki shayad yeh mulakaat adhoori thi. Aaj wahan baith kar maine uss kitaab ka introduction chapter padha (swipe left) Jismein unki zindagi, unki @tabutiful ke saath boht khoobsoorat film 'The Namesake', unki patni @sikdarsutapa , aur baaki boht si cheezon ka zikr hai. Main Irfan ko jaanta nahi tha, unke saath kabhi kaam karne ka mauka bhi nahi mila, Bombay aur industry se kuch saal rehne ke baad unko aaj tak saamne se dekha tak nahi, par aaj Roohdaar se roohbaru hokar kuch adhoora sa poora hogya. तुम थोड़ा जल्दी चले गये, इरफ़ान। वो डोर जो तुम्हारे हाथ से छूट रही थी, काश खुद को लपेट लेती तुम्हारे चारों और। - समर @irrfan ❤️

I am so moved by this Insta post. This man visited @irrfank’s grave, read a poem to him and then sat and read the intro to my biography of the late actor! I had tears in my eyes reading this post. https://t.co/fYdo1GxOvO— Aseem Chhabra (@chhabs) October 13, 2020
How can one not cry? I just wrote a book on a man I admired. It was work. But I never thought Irrfan would leave us so soon and my book would take on a new meaning. pic.twitter.com/m7tB3Iow9p— Aseem Chhabra (@chhabs) October 13, 2020
