Famous Jurassic World, Life of Pi Actor, Irrfan Khan Dies at 53

Famous Bollywood movie star, Irrfan Khan, widely recognized and reputed for his amazing roles in Slumdog Millionaire, Jurassic World, and Life of Pi has died at the age of 53.

According to a revelation by his spokesman in his official statement, Irrfan Khan breathed his last on Wednesday 29th April after struggling with medical complication believed to have been caused by colon infection.

Irrfan Khan, survived by his wife Sutapa Sikder, and sons: Babil and Ayan, was admitted to the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani hospital in Mumbai where he passed away.

Recall that in 2018, Irrfan disclosed on Twitter that he was diagnosed with an endocrine tumour, a rare illness affecting cells that release hormones into the bloodstream, the same illness that made him undergo treatment in London.

Exactly two months after, he wrote an open letter in another tweet about his experience with cancer and the treatment. In this tweet, Irrfan hinted the severity of the pain and the uncertainty of life.

However, he is now confirmed dead in a statement released on Wednesday, which reads;

“‘I trust, i have surrendered’; These were the some of the many words that Irrfan expressed in a heartfelt 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 his 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’.”

May his gentle soul rest in perfect peace.
