The year 2020 has nothing great to offer, at least until now. We, in fact, have been majorly coming across the news people either dying or getting infected with the deadly Coronavirus, something that the world is battling with for more than a month now. The film industry, too, is waking up to some of the tragic news. It was only recently that the legendary Irrfan Khan and Rishi Kapoor left us for their heavenly abode. Another such sad news came recently after the demise of Aamir Khan's personal assistant Amos, who breathed his last due to a heart attack on May 12. Amos was extremely close to the Khan family and has been professionally and personally associated with Aamir for more than two decades.
His death, unsurprisingly, came as a huge shocker for Aamir Khan and his family, including daughter Ira Khan. Taking to her Instagram, the aspiring filmmaker remembered Amos through a heartwarming note. She thanked him for teaching her several things. "R.I.P Amos. Thanks for teaching me how to make home-made coffee look cool, playing saat-aath with us and showing me what efficient packing really looks like. Didn’t think you’d ever not be around," read Ira's post. She also wrote, "Legends don't die," using an Instagram sticker.
Amos, on Wednesday morning, was taken to the Holy Family hospital by Aamir Khan, his wife Kiran Rao and their team after getting collapsed. However, he couldn't make it.
Take a look at her post:
Yesterday, Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao attended Amos' funeral at a Christian cemetery in Sewri. The couple was spotted wearing masks. A picture showed Aamir silently standing and prayer in front of Amos' coffin. It was indeed a personal loss to the actor.
