The internationally renowned actor Irrfan Khan died in April this year at Mumbai’s Kokilaben Hospital while battling a rare kind of cancer. The 53-year-old actor was last seen on screen in Angrezi Medium. He was not a part of the film’s promotions owing to his ill health.
A few days ago, Irrfan’s son Babil had revealed that ‘he had a strange understanding of rain’. He beautifully said in the post ‘he could only explain it to me through the limits within what words would let him, but there was a connection that I cannot envelop even in the most beautiful language’. Sharing a picture of the Angrezi Medium star, he can be seen sitting in a desert, in front of the camel.
With critically acclaimed films like The Lunchbox, The Namesake and Paan Singh Tomar to his credit, Irrfan was regarded as one of the finest actors in the Hindi cinema.
