After battling with cancer Irrfan finally bided adieu to the world, but his elaborate body of work continues to inspire not just the fans but some of the extraordinary talents from the film industry. Actor Pankaj Tripathi, who is emerging as the ultimate talent with his superlative performances in movies as well as in the web series, has no qualms in admitting the fact that Irrfan is the only Bollywood actor whose all movies he has watched to learn plenty from.
The Mirzapur actor doesn't talk much about his idols or inspiration otherwise, is all praise for Khan. "I think he is the only actor from our industry whose all the work (films) I have watched. When I watched him in Maqbool or The Warrior, I felt that he was doing something really different and that left an indelible impact on me. And that's what acting and the magic of movies is all about. I always wanted to share screen space with Irrfan sir. I always wanted to work with him, fortunately, I got that rare chance in the film called Angrezi Medium where I bagged a small part," shared Tripathi.
