Irrfan Khan Diedvia

One of the most talented and promising actors Irrfan Khan passed away at the age of 53. He was admitted to Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital for a colon infection on Tuesday. Irrfan is survived by his wife Sutapa Sikder and two sons Babil and Ayan. On April 25, Irrfan Khan lost his mother at Jaipur, but due to lockdown, he was unable to attend the funeral of his mother. He was not well since 2018 and was battling with cancer. Irrfan Khan was unable to promote his last movie Angrezi Medium because of the disease. He was awarded the prestigious honor Padma Shree in the year 2011.

The official statement on Irrfan Khan’s death,

“‘I trust, I have surrendered'”; These were the some of the many words that Irrfan expressed in a heartfelt 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 his heavenly 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.”

Many celebrities, friends, and colleagues of Irrfan Khan have poured their heartfelt condolences. Check out their heartfelt wishes.
















We will miss you, Irrfan Khan. You were a gem of an actor and the vacuum created by your loss will never be fulfilled. Rest In Peace Irrfan Khan.
