National Award-winning actor Irrfan Khan passed away early today at the age of 53 at Mumbai’s Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani hospital. “Irrfan was buried at the Versova kabrastan in Mumbai at 3 p.m. this afternoon soon after the news of his passing away was announced. In presence were his family, close relatives and friends. Everyone paid their final respects to the versatile actor.
“I tell life: ‘Lag Jaa Gale Ki Phir Yeh Haseen Shaam Ho Naa Ho, Shayad Is Janam Mein Mulaqaat Ho Na Ho [Embrace and hug me life, for your never know if we will ever have this magical evening like this or not, Perhaps we may meet or never meet again in my lifetime],” said Khan in an exclusive email interview with Gulf News tabloid.
He was last seen on the big screen on March 12 with ‘Angrezi Medium’, a warm and fuzzy father-daughter tale directed by one of Bollywood’s finest directors Homi Adjania who famously waited for the actor to recover so that he could begin filming.
