I can’t believe he’s gone. Not him. I can’t say anything. My mom and I have been crying for the past 2 hours. The most versatile actor in India (in my eyes) bid adieu today. Those who don’t know him let me tell you something about him.
After posting my recent post on WordPress, I went on Google to see news headlines and in big bold letters I find this:
Let me introduce you to the best actor in India:
Irrfan Khan (7 January 1967 – 29 April 2020) was an Indian actor, known for his work predominantly in Hindi cinema, in addition to British and American films. In a career spanning over 30 years and featuring in more than 50 domestic films, Khan had received numerous awards, including a National Film Award and Filmfare Awards in four categories. Film critics, contemporaries and other experts consider him to be one of the finest actors in Indian cinema. In 2011, he was awarded the Padma Shri, India’s fourth-highest civilian honour.
Khan made his screen debut with a small role in Salaam Bombay! (1988), which was followed by years of struggle. After starring in the British film The Warrior (2001), he had his breakthrough with starring roles in the dramas Haasil (2003) and Maqbool (2004). He went on to gain critical acclaim for his roles in The Namesake (2006), Life in a… Metro (2007), and Paan Singh Tomar (2011). The last of these earned him the National Film Award for Best Actor. Further success came for his starring roles in The Lunchbox (2013), Piku (2015), Talvar (2015) and No Bed of Roses (2017). He had supporting roles in the Hollywood films The Amazing Spider-Man (2012), Life of Pi (2012), Jurassic World (2015), and Inferno (2016). His highest-grossing Hindi film release came with the comedy-drama Hindi Medium (2017), which won him the Filmfare Award for Best Actor. His final appearance was in its sequel Angrezi Medium (2020).
As of 2017, his films have grossed $3.643 billion at the worldwide box office. In 2018, Khan was diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumour. He died at the age of 53 on 29 April 2020.
I have watched his movies since childhood. I remember his role in Slumdog Millionaire, the first time I saw him. From Slumdog Millionaire and Life In A Metro to Jurassic World and English Medium, Irfan Khan has been a great actor and human being who left behind his wife, 2 children, sad actors and crying fans.
My most favourite movie that always makes me laugh whenever I am crying or I feel sad. I can’t believe he is gone. This post is a tribute to the best actor in India. I will miss his sweet smile and cheerful attitude.
- Irrfan Khan was being treated for a colon infection in a Mumbai hospital, was diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumour in March 2018 and died today morning.
This post is a tribute to him. I don’t care if you don’t like it. Today I lost my favourite movie star and I couldn’t get more depressed.
That’s it for today. Follow my blog on:
