Tributes are pouring in from across Bollywood and Hollywood for Irrfan Khan. The actor, who was 53 years old, passed away today in Mumbai. The Paan Singh Tomar star was admitted to Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital. He was under observation for colon infection. Following his demise, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Dulquer Salmaan and Amitabh Bachchan were among the many stars who took to social media and remembered the actor. Deepika Padukone also joined the fraternity and paid her tribute towards the actor. 

For the unversed, Deepika worked with Irrfan on Piku. The duo shared a heartwarming bond on-screen in the Shoojit Sircar directorial. Instead of showering words for the actor, Deepika chose to offer her silence to show her respect for the actor. Without uttering a word, Deepika painted Instagram black with a blank post and the hashtag, "#irrfankhan" and a heartbreak emoji. The post denoted several emotions.

Piku director Shoojit Sircar was among the first Bollywood celebrities to share their thoughts on Irrfan's demise. Not only did he confirm the heartbreaking news, but he also showered the actor with love. "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 tweeted. 

Irrfan was laid to rest at the Versova kabrastan in Mumbai. The procession took place at 3 PM on April 29. He was buried in the presence of his family, close relatives and friends. "He was strong in his fight, and we all have to be strong too in this loss," read the statement from his family. Announcing the demise, Irrfan's family said, "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."

TBH was really upset with dp and her jnu stunt but you got to give the girl a break. She is no rocket scientist but she has a good heart and she must have cried on hearing this news. With respect to Piku AB sr. Irrfan and deepika were the perfect trio. Deepika had to up her game in the presence of actors par excellence and she passed the test. Irrfan brought out the best in her. In a sense they are similar.....their eyes do the talking. Irrfan Sir you have left an indelible mark in the hearts and minds of the people. You were a statesman and a good human being. You would be missed. Rest in peace.

Now is the time for stupid talk. Maybe go back and read what Irrfan had to say about Deepika and her acting skills in his interviews. Maybe you will think twice about making comments like you are. There was obvious fondness between these two. It was very obvious in all interviews post Piku.

I dont think he left us or the world of cinema. Recently saw Angrezi Medium, and not a single fake moment by Irrfan. He eyes were full of life, love for life and his craft. his body could keep up, so what? He will be back... he has a lot left to give to the world.

Piku was all 3 of these powerhouses and one of my favorite hindi films. Neither of them were replaceable. I’m sad there wont be anymore collaborations between these wonderful artists. The sweet banter with Irrfan and Deepika was unexpected.

It's bothering when a good actor dies. I have like a hard time watching Sridevi movies nowadays honestly, especially Mom, English Vinglish etc. because you think of all the other movies she COULD be making if she was alive. Irfan died of natural causes, so like, it couldn't really be stopped, but still how can anyone watch Piku now without only thinking about him, especially since it is a movie subtly about death?

I meant the person is a soul who said "Piku was piku because of Irfan and AB not because of DP. She was the most replaceable part of the film and most mediocre. "

What a strong statement. If they didn't learn to be strong from him, they didn't learn anything. He was a versatile actor the film world cherishes and proud of. He knew that as well as how much his family witnessed and learned. I am sure that he was proud that he made a mark in film world and on his family.
