Extraordinary and stunning Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan passed away on Wednesday in Mumbai’s Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital at an age of 53 years, where he was under treatment for a colon infection. Irrfan Khan was diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumour in March 2018, soon after which he left for London for his treatment. He returned to India in February 2019 to shoot his last film, Angrezi Medium and returned back to London after a brief stay. The actor returned to India in 2019’s September after his treatment and a surgery in London.
“‘I trust, I have surrendered’; These were 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 has done several outstanding movies such as Hindi Medium, Angrezi Medium, Life of Pi, Blackmail, Slumdog Millionaire, Piku, Jurassic World, Madaari, and several others. He was last seen in the film Angrezi Medium.
