Irrfan Khan has died at the age of 53 after being admitted to Mumbai’s Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital on 28th April 2020. This 53-year-old actor was hospitalized in Mumbai Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital. He was suddenly Deteriorated which required immediate medical attention. He was diagnosed with cancer in March 2018, returned to India this year after his treatment abroad.
“‘I trust, I have surrendered,’” were the words with which his family confirmed his death while adding, “ 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 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’.”
Irrfan’s mother Saeeda Begum died last Saturday in Jaipur due to the nationwide lockdown he was unable to attend and pay the last rites for his mother.
