One of the most skilful and accomplished actresses, Priyanka Chopra took to her Instagram story to remember the legendary actor, Irrfan Khan, who was ‘more than an actor; he was a seeker.’, as Chandan Roy Sanyal puts in.
‘Remembering an incredible legacy. Irrfan.’, she writes as she shares a monochromatic picture of the actor smiling jovially. It was on this day that the brilliant actor was born, and not just Priyanka but several other celebrities like Bhumi Pednekar and Shruti Haasan too remembered the remarkable actor on his birth anniversary, grieving his absence.
The renowned actor breathed his last breath on 29th of April, 2020 in Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital, Mumbai. The cause of his demise was colon infection, something he had been battling since 2018! The strong actor didn’t give up and fought against the rare disease for two years. He left us early, at the age of 53 and his absence has, ever since, created such a cosmic gap in the industry that stands irremediable!
Having worked in countless masterpieces like ‘Life Of Pi’, ‘Piku’, ‘The Lunchbox’, ‘Puzzle’ etc., the actor had not only reigned over Bollywood but has also left a remarkable imprint over the Hollywood too!
