Irrfan Khan left for heavenly abode after battling for months with cancer. He was 53. The actor is survived by two sons and a wife. In 2018, Irrfan was diagnosed with Neuroendocrine Tumor and he had flown down to London for the medical treatment. Last year, Irrfan returned to India and soon begun shooting for Homi Adajania’s Angrezi Medium with Kareena Kapoor Khan. Apart from his serious acting chops, Irrfan always made news for his fashion sense. Thanks to his stylist the actor never minded experimenting new things.
As India is mourning the loss of the legend actor, his stylist Isha Bhansali and manager Manpreet Bacchhar have taken to social media to pen a tribute to the actor. Sharing a couple of pictures wearing stylish ensembles, his stylist Isha wrote, “No artist can sink in the loss of her muse. It’s a void of expression. Irrfan Sir, the unmatched legendary actor we always knew, was quite passionate about fashion. Lover of all things art. I did a couple of looks for Piku promotions with him. But it was during the promotions of Hindi Medium when I discovered how much fashion holds dear to him. He knew his fabrics. He knew his fits (I barely remember doing fittings with him). Black won’t be as bold without him now. His personality was a magnet. At his age, he had elegance and swag in equal measure. Not many have them both.
And even today I daresay no one can carry off a lungi the way he does. He spelt it with charm, suave and made it look absolutely royal. Cinema aside, Indian fashion has lost a dear muse. I’m forever grateful to his former manager Manpreet @mann012 for having introduced him to me. It’s been an honour. My love goes out to her and Sir’s family.
I remember that one time I dressed him up in a suit. He asked me if he looked fine. I said “Sir, tennu suit suit karda.” He blushed and it was confirmed, you cannot escape that smile. Sir, there won’t be another like you. I’m pretty sure you’re in your fashionable best right now. And being the cinematic legend you are. #RIPIrrfanKhan (ALSO READ: Irrfan Khan Demise: When Irrfan Khan And Deepika Padukone Joked About Him Doing Pushups To Build Chemistry For Piku-Video)
