Acclaimed Bollywood and Hollywood actor Irrfan passed away this morning. The actor breathed his last at Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital on April 29, 2020 early morning. He was admitted for a colon infection. He was 54-years-old.
Now, the official statement from the actor's spokesperson has been released. It reads, "'I trust, I have surrendered”; These were 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 a 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 heaven 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”.
PeepingMoon has exclusively learned that Irrfan's last words were to his wife Sutapa. He said, "Ab mujhe yakeen hai mai haar gaya hoon". He was constantly remembering his mother Sayeeda Begum who passed away 4 days back. Recalling his 'amma', the actor kept saying, "she is here in my room, mujhe lene aaye hai, dekho baithi hai mere paas".
After 1 am last night, the actor had stopped responding to medicines. Only 4 people were there with the actor at the hospital. His wife Sutapa, son Babil, ex-Manager Asif, and driver Hashmat. Shoojit Sircar was also present at the hospital since last night.
