During the Netflix roundtable 2022, Rajkummar Rao called Irrfan Khan’s death the biggest loss to the industry. The actor admitted that Irrfan impacted his life in a big way. The Bareily Ki Barfi actor recalled his meeting with Irrfan in London during his last days. He revealed that they met for lunch. Rajkummar added, “I think those 2-3 hours I would always cherish because that guy who knew what was coming and still the way he was portraying himself and he was still so curious about things, about life and he wanted to travel and he became very sufi-type, very sufiyana. And of course, I don’t think there would be another Irrfan Khan ever in this country. The biggest loss in the industry.”

Rajkummar Rao added that another actor who inspired him is Shah Rukh Khan. He said that he has never met anyone like him. “The way that he treats you, we all know him, though. I think the greatest guy. We all love him.”
