Son follows his mom till the end! Irrfan Khan passes away in Kokilaben Hospital at 53
Entertainment Desk (Pankaj Khanna): One of India’s finest actors passed away this morning. The actor who’s done various Hollywood films as well was battling with cancer since 2018. He’s survived by his wife and his two children. It’s shocking as only four days ago he lost his mother aged 95 and couldn’t see her at the last moments. The actor who’s done films like Hindi Medium, Angrezi Medium, Life of Pi to name a few, has left the world amidst Corona lockdown. He was admitted to hospital on Tuesday for Colon infection.
“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 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”.
