Irrfan Khan needed immediate medical attention after his health worsened on Tuesday. AajTak had reported that the 53-year-old actor was in ICU and his wife Sutapa Sikdar and two sons were with him.
Here’s the official statement on Irrfan Khan’s death:
“‘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 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.”
Irrfan Khan was diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumour in 2018 and his health has been fragile since. As a result, he was kept under medical supervision. The 53-year old actor lost his mother on Saturday but could not attend her funeral due to the nationwide lockdown.
Irrfan Khan was last seen in Angrezi Medium also starring Kareena Kapoor Khan and Radhika Madan. The film hit the theatres a few days before cinema halls were shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic.
