Angrezi Medium actor Irrfan Khan died today on 29th April 2020 at Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital. He was sadly suffering from colon infection. He was seriously an unmatched actor with a separate fan base. In London, he was seeking treatment of tumors and then returned to India after becoming well. The whole Bollywood industry is mourning the death of the legend. It is sudden and saddening news in the midst of this coronavirus pandemic.
A lot of actors are opening their heart out on Twitter. Their grief clearly pops out in the words they are writing to remember the great and talented actor of our time.

He etched every character in our memories with sheer talent. From the passion of Pan Singh Tomar to a floundering father in Angrezi Medium #IrrfanKhan was an actor to behold. How do you mourn his passing away for he breathes in the characters he left behind .. Om Shanti 🙏

It is the most saddening news for the fans. It is also said that he was surrounded by his family in his last hours. Irrfan Khan was serious and shifted to the ICU yesterday as confirmed by his spokesperson. Read the statement given by his family. “‘I trust, I have surrendered’; These were the some of the many words that Irrfan expressed in a heart-felt note he wrote in 2018 opening up about his fight with cancer. And a man of few words and an actor of silent expressions with his deep eyes and his memorable actions on screen. It’s saddening that this day, we have to bring forward the news of him passing away. Irrfan was a strong soul, someone who fought till the very end and always inspired everyone who came close to him. After having been struck by lightning in 2018 with the news of a rare cancer, he took life soon after as it came and he fought the many battles that came with it. Surrounded by his love, his family for whom he most cared about, he left for heavenly abode, leaving behind truly a legacy of his own. We all pray and hope that he is at peace. And to resonate and part with his words he had said, ‘As if I was tasting life for the first time, the magical side of it’.”
He was really fighting the battle very hard. He spent months in London to get well and only came to India to finish the shooting of the Angrezi medium. Then after the shoot, he flew back to finish his treatment. Really a Star has been fallen from our industry but his work and talent will always make him unforgettable. RIP Irrfan Khan
