Irrfan Khan the Legend of Bollywood

The actor was fighting with cancer from many past months. His brilliant talent and sheer passion for work made him one of the finest actors of the film industry. His bad health posed as an obstacle in his way forward and he left this world on Wednesday. Actor's mother passed away just 4 days ago and because of lockdown he could not travel to meet her for the very last time and saw her last time through a video conferencing session.

Union Minister Smriti Irani said he 'etched every character in our memories with sheer talent'. 'How do you mourn his passing away for he breathes in the characters he left behind,' she said.

Actor statement I think, I have surrendered, while fighting cancer in 2018, Irfan Khan wrote these words in a note written from a heart. A man with a low voice, a calm voice with his deep eyes, and a memorable action on the screen ... It is very sad that on this day we are reporting that he did not live in this world. Irfan was a very strong soul who kept fighting until the end and always inspired the man who came close to him. After the news of rare cancer in 2018, she took life as she came in front of her and fought all the battles that came with it. He has moved to Jannat among his love, the family he cared the most, leaving behind his true legacy. We all pray that he may have peace.
