The sudden demise of versatile actor Irrfan Khan sent a shockwave across the entertainment. Irrfan Khan passed away on April 29, 2020, in Mumbai after battling with cancer for two years. The actor was admitted to the hospital a day before his death following colon infection and deteriorating health conditions. The whole of Bollywood fraternity mourned the death of the late actor who has left behind a legacy for the budding artists to follow.
Meanwhile, Irrfan Khan’s Piku co-star Deepika Padukone shared a throwback video on the occasion of their film completing 5 years. She shared a video of them playing tennis together on the sets of Piku and Deepika urged Irrfan Khan to come back.
She captioned the throwback BTS video, “Please come back! #irrfankhan.”
The video surely brings back all the memories of the legend we lost and how he can’t be replaced. In a throwback video of Deepika Padukone hugging Irrfan Khan which is making rounds on the internet, the Bollywood actress is seen happily calling late Irrfan her ‘most favourite person’.
The Shoojit Sircar directed Piku also starred Bollywood’s legendary star Amitabh Bachchan alongside Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan. The movie was lauded by the audiences and the critics alike and everyone still has their road trip embedded in the memories.
Bollywood industry surely lost a gem actor whose acting doesn’t even seem like acting. He would get into the skin of the character offered to him and get the best out of it. Irrfan was last seen in Angrezi Medium opposite Radhika Madan, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Deepak Dobriyal, and Dimple Kapadia.
On the work front, Deepika will be seen in Ranveer Singh starrer ’83. The Kabir Khan directed film revolves around the Indian cricket team lifting their maiden cricket World Cup in 1983 after defeating West Indies in the finals.
The film was slated to release on April 10, 2020, but has been delayed due to the on-going coronavirus crises.
