Irrfan Khan, one of Bollywood’s precious gems wasn’t keeping well for the past couple of days and was admitted to Mumbai’s Kokilaben Hospital in the ICU ward. He has been facing health issues since 2018 ever since he was diagnosed with Neuroendocrine Tumour. A while back, we learnt that the actor breathed his last. A man of few words and deep eyes, Irrfan Khan was known for his impeccable acting abilities.
The news was confirmed by his good friend and film-maker Shoojit Sircar in his tweet which left actors from Bollywood and fans in shock! An official statement by his spokesperson was released too.
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 also lost his mother a few days and was unable to attend her funeral due to the ongoing Covid-19 scenario. We pray for the actor’s soul to rest in peace. Friends and peers from the industry like Taapsee Pannu, Mini Mathur, Neha Dhupia, Ira Dubey, Sonam Kapoor, and many others pay their tribute to the Angrezi Medium actor. It is indeed a great loss to the industry!
He may have gone from our sight but never from our hearts.
We’ll miss you, Irrfan! 🙁
