While everyone extended their warm wishes, renowned director Shoojit Sircar, in one of his interviews discussed his loving relationship with the actor. He said that the vacuum of his absence can never be fulfilled and losing Irfaan Khan was the biggest loss of 2020. Shoojit knew Irrfan as a person and was influenced by him. In an exclusive conversation with ETimes on Irfaan’s birth anniversary, Shoojit shared his thoughts on the actor.
He said “He has left a vacuum. If you ask me what the biggest loss was in 2020, I would say Irrfan Khan was the biggest loss to the film industry. I wish him luck and joy wherever he is in his magical world that he would always speak about. I GUESS HE is finally in his magical world. What stood about Irrfan was his spirit as a human being. His simplicity of belief in humanity. Those things I remember about him. Especially during his later days, he would talk more about spirituality. We would discuss it. We exchanged books in the last two years when he was going through his treatment. We had a lot of conversations about many other things minus the cinema.“
