Actor Irrfan Khan has passed away. The Namsake actor breathed his last at a Mumbai hospital on Wednesday morning. The actor was suffering from cancer and was undergoing treatment for two years. The 54 year old actor who was last seen in Angrezi Medium is survived by his wife Sutapa and his two sons Babil and Ayan.
According to sources he was admitted to the hospital just a few days before his mother passed away in Jaipur. The actor was taken to the hospital after he developed a colon infection though we don’t know the cause of death.
An official statement from the family said, ““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.”
