Actor Irrfan breathed his last on Wednesday at the age of 53. The Angrezi Medium star was admitted to Mumbai’s Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital, where was under observation for colon infection. Just last week, Irrfan Khan's mother Saeeda Begum died at the age of 95 on Saturday morning in Jaipur.

Official statement on Irrfan Khan’s demise: 

“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.”

The news of his death was first shared on Twitter by Irrfan's Piku director Shoojit Sircar. “My dear friend Irfaan. You fought and fought and fought. I will always be proud of you.. we shall meet again.. condolences to Sutapa and Babil.. you too fought, Sutapa you gave everything possible in this fight. Peace and Om shanti. Irfaan Khan salute,” he wrote.

I remember when I saw it in the news two years ago that Irfaan ji had colon cancer, it was just the few weeks we where still grappling with the sudden demise of Sridevi ji, I had this sudden tight knot in the pit of my stomach, immediately I knew it wasn't a question of if but when, my spirit became unsettled. Every now and then I will see it on the news he was undergoing treatment in London. I will sigh deeply and say a prayer but deep down I feared for his life, again I will see another news that he is back acting in a movie but I couldn't shake of that dread. Yesterday, in the news again, he is in the hospital, I went to bed with that tight knot in my stomach, I wake up this morning and this, he has gone. Today yes I can't help it, I am mad at God, angry why the most talented actor of them all. I didn't know this man personally but I have followed his career for years, gifted,an effortless actor. I have read his interviews, one that still makes me smile is where he said that once he starts making money that he was going to give his mother a suitcase full of cash. 53 years old is too young to die, he still had so much to give us, Irfaan ji may your soul rest in perfect peace. This is indeed a sad day.

Still in disbelief over this heartbreaking news. He is a huge and irreplaceable loss and this couldn't have happened at a worse possible time. Moreover, I would like to add that I hope after this pandemic is over the audience is less tolerant of mediocrity and less partial towards sub par nepotistic products so that higher quality actors and outsiders can enter the industry and scale greater deserving heights with the audience's support and the standards for our cinema will automatically be raised if the audience makes it happen.
