“Darya bhi main, darakht bhi main … Jhelum bhi main, chinar bhi main … dair bhi hoon, haram bhi hoon … Shia bhi hoon, Sunni bhi hoon, main hoon pandit … main tha, main hoon aur main hi rahoonga.”– Irrfan dialogue from Haider movie.
Without any stereotypical looks, six-packbody , dynastic claim in Bollywood.It’s been just talent & a beautiful screen presence that makes the Irrfan Khan special from other actors.
After being admitted on Tuesday to Mumbai’s Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital, Actor Irrfan Khan died at age 54 where he was being treated for colon infection. The star revealed in 2018 that a neuroendocrine tumor had been diagnosed.
The career of Irrfan has spanned decades and industries. The actor was also remembered for playing his role in Indian cinema by many international blockbusters such as Slumdog Millionaire, Jurassic World, The Amazing Spider-Man, and Life of Pi.
Most famous movies of Irrfan khan are :Hasil, salaam Bombay, Maqbool (2004), ROG,Paan Singh Tomar (2011), Saheb Biwi Gangster,The Lunchbox (2013), Haider (2014), Madaari,Gunday (2014), Piku (2015) and Talvar (2015) , Hindi Medium (2017) and Many more.
For his strong performance in sports drama ‘Paan Singh Tomar,’ Irrfan won a National Award.
Irrfan is survived by his wife Sutapa and sons – Babil and Ayan.
‘I trust, I have surrendered,’” were the words with which his family confirmed his death, while adding, “ 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’.”
The last film by Irrfan Khan was ‘Angrezi Medium’ which hit the screens days before the announcement of the lockdown.

यूँ मौत को सीने से लगाता नहीं कोई..!”?#RIPIrfankhan pic.twitter.com/RhJgSJe8L3
