He ‘fought and fought and fought’: Irrfan Khan gone too soon

Apr 29, 2020 15:53 IST

Irrfan Khan, the actor who would light up and walk off the screen and come home with us, lost his battle with neuroendocrine tumor on Wednesday. Days after he watched his 95-year-old mother’s funeral through video, the actor was shifted to Mumbai Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital on Tuesday with ‘colon infection’. He was 53. Bollywood’s most recognizable face in the West, Irrfan had left India shocked in 2018 when he had announced that he’d been diagnosed with the debilitating diseases. As his filmmaker friend Shoojit Sircar announced Irrfan’s death, he reminded us that the actor extraordinaire fought and fought and fought.
