No stereotypical looks, no six-pack, no fancy dance steps, no dynastic claim to a place in Bollywood. It was just talent & a breathtaking screen presence. #IrrfanKhan your courage to speak up when others chose silence was your biggest asset & will be missed the most. God speed.— Omar Abdullah (@OmarAbdullah) April 29, 2020
With the untimely demise of #IrrfanKhan, we lost a versatile actor.— Devendra Fadnavis (@Dev_Fadnavis) April 29, 2020
Not just a hardworking actor but he was also a good cricketer but couldn’t persue due to lack of funds. His TV and film presence is unparalleled and has been giving confidence & motivation to many.
His body of work and dedication to the craft was in a league of its own. The world of cinema lost a gem today, but his work will continue to inspire generations.— Sonakshi Sinha (@sonakshisinha) April 29, 2020
Rest in peace #IrrfanKhan 🙏 pic.twitter.com/ODGVEDYAU1

This is just too sad. I'd worked with #IrrfanKhan in Supari, not our best, but we had a wonderful time together. We met a few times after that & will always treasure the warmth. Not to mention the loss of an incredible actor. Will rewatch his flims to celebrate his life and work.— Nandita Das (@nanditadas) April 29, 2020
Don’t know how to react to the news of #Irrfan’s demise.— Gautam Chintamani (@GChintamani) April 29, 2020
A conscious part of our memory for three decades, there isn’t a day when you don’t think of his great performances.
Few actors can infuse life into characters in a single moment. Irrfan had a million of those.
Unbelievable. This is shocking news. We have lost a magnificent actor today. To know that his mother passed away just two days ago and he passes away so young is unbelievable. We bid you farewell into an eternity of peace, Sir. Om Shanti. 🙏#IrrfanKhan pic.twitter.com/WKKxZyTAoh— Anjali B. (@TheWayfarerSoul) April 29, 2020
Oh my dear friend @irrfank, why?— Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri (@vivekagnihotri) April 29, 2020

My prayers for Sutapa and family.
Rest in peace, my friend.
IRRFAN KHAN. There shall never be one like you . RIP.— Paresh Rawal (@SirPareshRawal) April 29, 2020

He etched every character in our memories with sheer talent. From the passion of Pan Singh Tomar to a floundering father in Angrezi Medium #IrrfanKhan was an actor to behold. How do you mourn his passing away for he breathes in the characters he left behind .. Om Shanti 🙏— Smriti Z Irani (@smritiirani) April 29, 2020
