New Delhi: Indian cinema’s legendary actor Irrfan Khan breathed his last on Wednesday, April 29, 2020, leaving behind a legacy unparalleled. The 53-year-old actor was rushed to Kokilaben hospital due to colon infection a day before. The actor par excellence battled a rare form of cancer – Neuroendocrine Tumour for two long years and had shared the news of his illness first on social media.
In all of his struggle, his wife and NSD companion Sutapa Sikdar stood like a rock with him. A month ago on March 21, Sutapa had changed her Facebook profile picture and put one with Irrfan. The image is now being widely circulated on social media.
This will probably warm the cockles of your heart, especially at a time when not only the country but also globally fans and celebs are mourning Irrfan’s untimely demise.
Irrfan’s last rites were performed today at the Versova Kabrastan in Andheri, Mumbai. His relatives and close ones paid their last respects.
“The legendary actor was buried at the Versova Kabrastan at 3 pm this afternoon soon after the news of his passing away was announced. In presence were his family, close relatives and friends.
