Irrfan Khan Passes Away At 53

Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan has lost the battle against tumour and passed away at the age of 53. He was admitted to Kokilaben Hospital on Monday due to colon infection. The sad news of Irrfan Khan’s death was shared on Twitter by filmmaker Shoojit Sircar who wrote, “My dear friend Irfaan. You fought and fought and fought. I will always be proud of you.. we shall meet again.. condolences to Sutapa and Babil.. you too fought, Sutapa you gave everything possible in this fight. Peace and Om shanti. Irfaan Khan salute.” Irrfan Khan’s representative told the media, "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.” Last week, the actor’s mother had died at the age of 95. It is a hard time for Irrfan Khan and his family. Irrfan Khan was last seen in Angrezi Medium alongside Radhika Madan. May his soul rest in peace.
