However, after fighting for hours together, this morning at around 11 am IST, Irrfan Khan gave up and surrendered. At the age of 54, the man who gave the Hindi Cinema innumerable remarkable characters and movies, left for heavenly abode.
When contacted, Irrfan Khan’s Spokesperson shared:
“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”.
Earlier this week, Irrfan recently lost his mother Saeeda Begum. While his mother’s last rites took place in Jaipur the Piku star attended the funeral through a video call given the nationwide lockdown imposed to combat COVID 19 outbreak in India. It was reported that Irrfan also missed the funeral owing to his ill health and wasn’t able to travel outside Mumbai.
We pray for his departed soul to rest in peace and also pray that God grants strength to his family member in such difficult times.
In the year 2018, the Hindi Medium star had announced to the world that he’d been diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumour.
