One of India’s finest and versatile actors, Irrfan Khan, lost his battle against a rare form of cancer yesterday. He died in a Mumbai hospital on Wednesday and was diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumor. For Irrfan’s family, it is the second tragedy as his mother, Saeeda Begum (95-year-old) passed away last week in Jaipur. Irrfan could not attend his mother’s funeral due to the nationwide lockdown.
Irrfan made his mark both in Indian as well as international cinema. From doing intense roles to light-hearted ones, Irrfan brought method acting in Bollywood. He returned home in September’19 for Angrezi Medium’s (prequel to a super hit 2017 movie – Hindi Medium) shoot. He could not do much promotion due to health conditions. The movie hit the theatres right before the lockdown.
Here are 10 enlightening lines that Irrfan shared about his life, religion, success, and much more.
