Aamir Khan To Priyanka Chopra, Bollywood Celebrities Mourn Irrfan Khan's Demise


Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan has passed away in Mumbai. He was 54. The shocking news of the Angrezi Medium star's demise was first shared by his close friend and colleague director Shoojit Sircar on social media. Irrfan is survived by his wife Sutapa Sikdar and two sons Babil and Ayan.

On Tuesday, Irrfan was admitted to Mumbai's Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani hospital with a colon infection and was kept in the intensive care unit (ICU). The actor's demise is a big loss to the Hindi cinema.

Irrfan passed away just a few days after the actor's mother Saeeda Begum breathed her last. She died in Jaipur on Saturday where she used to stay. However, owing to the ongoing lockdown, the actor could not physically attend his mother's last rites and reportedly paid his last respect through video conferencing.

Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Priyanka Chopra, Ajay Devgn, Shabana Azmi, R Madhavan, Sonam Kapoor, Shoojit Sircar, Mini Mathur, Neelesh Misra, cricketer Hemang Badani, Bhumi Pednekar, Parineeti Chopra, Sanjay Suri, Akshay Kumar, Kajol, and many others mourned the actor's death on social media. Check out some of the reactions of celebs below.

My 3rd film, my first day on set & I had the pleasure of standing in frame with you. It felt surreal then & it feels gut wrenching now to know that's all the time we had together. Thank you for all the amazing work. Hope the pain is lesser wherever you are.

अभी तो time आया था तेरा मेरे भाई। अभी तो कितना काम करता तू जो इतिहास में लिखा जाता। क्या यार? थोड़ी ताक़त और लगाता भाई। पर लगाई तो होगी ही तूने सारी। ठीक है, जा। आराम कर। दो साल बहुत लड़ा तू। थक भी गया होगा। एक बार बैठना चाहिए था हम सारों को, दारू पीते। पर बैठते नहीं हम।

The first shot that I witnessed as an asst. director was of Irfan khan . Calm , poised and so naturalistic , unlike anything i had seen before.A casual intensity that no other actor could pull off. Thank you Irfan for inspiring us. You will live on in our hearts forever.
