Slumdog Millionaire Actor Irrfan Khan Dies at 54

Today the world lost one of the finest actors, Irrfan Khan

Irrfan Khan, who won over millions of fans with his roles in numerous international and Indian films, is no more. A statement by his official spokesperson has confirmed the demise of the 54-year-old actor on Wednesday.

“‘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. Irrfan was a strong soul, someone who fought till the very end and always inspired everyone who came close to him. After having been struck by lightning in 2018 with the news of a rare cancer, he took life soon after as it came and he fought the many battles that came with it. Surrounded by his love, his family for whom he most cared about, he left for heaven abode, leaving behind truly a legacy of his own. We all pray and hope that he is at peace. And to resonate and part with his words he had said, ‘As if I was tasting life for the first time, the magical side of it,” said the statement, confirming the news of the actor’s death.

On Tuesday, Irrfan was admitted to Mumbai’s Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani hospital with a colon infection. Although a statement issued by his spokesperson in the early hours of Wednesday had dispelled rumours about his health condition, the confirmation of his demise came later in the day.

Expressing condolences to Irrfan Khan’s family, filmmaker Shoojit Sircar tweeted Wednesday morning: “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.”

Shoojit Sircar had directed Irrfan in his 2015 movie “Piku” which also starred Deepika Padukone and Amitabh Bachchan.

The actor has been ailing ever since he was diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumour a while back, and has been under medical attention for the same. He even went abroad for treatment.
