A piece of news that broke every Bollywood buff’s heart came in this morning when Irrfan Khan passed away to the heavenly abode due to his deteriorating health. The Angrezi Medium star who gave us all some precious and valuable memories with stellar performances on screen left the world at the age of 53. Irrfan wasn’t just a name, he was much more than that. An actor, a performer, a son, a husband, a father and more importantly, a good human being. 

Born in Jaipur, Rajasthan, Irrfan wanted to be a cricketer and was also selected for CK Nayudu Tournament for emerging players under 23 years. But, as luck would have it, he could not pursue it due to lack of funds. Khan went on to complete his MA in a college in Jaipur and then joined the National School Of Drama to study acting in 1984. His journey in Bollywood began much later with a small role in Salaam Bombay in 1988. However, post that Irrfan had to struggle a lot.
