Bollywood actor Padmashri Irrfan Khan died on Wednesday at the age of 54. Irrfan Khan was admitted to the ICU of Kokilaben Hospital in Mumbai on Tuesday due to a sudden deteriorating health. He was admitted because of a colon infection.
Filmmaker Shoojit Sircar shared the news of Irrfan Khan’s death on Twitter. He wrote, ‘My dear friend Irrfan, you fought, fought and fought. I will always be proud of you .. We will meet again. Shanti and Om Shanti. Salute to Irrfan Khan.
Earlier, Irrfan spokesperson was quoted as saying that “yes it is true that Irfan Khan has been admitted to the ICU of Kokilaben (Hospital) in Mumbai due to Cologne infection. We will keep you updated. He is under doctor’s supervision. His strength and courage has helped him fight the fight so far and we are confident that due to the tremendous will and prayers of all his well-wishers, he will fully recover soon. Is placed in attention.”
On the other hand, Irrfan’s mother has died recently. The actor’s mother Saeeda Begum breathed her last in Jaipur on Saturday. However, Irfran could not attend the mother’s funeral amidst a nationwide lockdown. He prayed on his behalf through video conferencing.
Other members of Irrfan Khan’s family said that his mother’s last wish was that his son Irrfan Khan would return home after winning the battle to death and he would be fully recovered. But this could not happen. He was neither able to see his mother on her death nor did his mother pray that her son would be cured. Born on 7 January 1967, Irrfan Khan has acted in more than 30 Bollywood films. Irrfan is also a well-known name in Hollywood. He has also appeared in the films A Mighty Heart, Slumdog Millionaire and The Amazing Spider-Man.
