If you partake in Bollywood films then you’re no stranger to Irrfan Khan, the man has been in the industry for DECADES and has been part of some of the most iconic films made.
However most of you might know him from the film ‘Slumdog Millionaire’, ‘Jurassic World’ or ‘Life of Pi’…the man is a FREAKING LEGEND.
Khan sadly passed away Wednesday night in hospital after developing a colon infection, aged 53.
He had been fighting a rare type of cancer since 2018.
His team released a statement saying “Irrfan was a strong soul, someone who fought till the very end and always inspired everyone who came close to him,”.
The world has been rocked with his sudden passing with the Prime Minister of India even tweeting about it.
Irrfan Khan’s demise is a loss to the world of cinema and theatre. He will be remembered for his versatile performances across different mediums. My thoughts are with his family, friends and admirers. May his soul rest in peace.
