Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan passes away after battle with cancer
Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan passed away at Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani hospital in Mumbai on Wednesday.
The actor was hospitalized on the evening of April 28 and held at ICU due to a colon infection. He was 54.
The legendary film star leaves widowed Sutapa Sikdar, and two sons Babli Khan and Ayan Khan.
The news comes just two days after the actor’s mother Saeda Begum took her last breath in Jaipur on Saturday where she used to live.
However, the actor did not physically attend the last rites of his mother due to the continuing lockdown, and reportedly paid his last respect through video conferencing.
Irrfan Khan was last seen in the comedy film Angrezi Medium by Homi Adajania, the last-released Bollywood film before COVID-19 forced a full shutdown of cinema halls.
In March 2018, he was diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumour, and a few days later he left for his treatment in London.
In February 2019, he returned to India, and filmed Angrezi Medium during his brief visit. He traveled to London a few months later to begin the diagnosis, and returned to India in September 2019 after his surgery.
