Irrfan Khan’s demise has brought the entire film industry on a standstill. It was some time ago that the Bollywood actor took his last breathe at Kokilaben Hospital due to a colon infection, at the age of 53. Soon after the tragic news hit the internet, a streak of celebrities from different walks of life are paying tributes to the powerhouse of talent that Irrfan Khan was. Joining the likes of Amitabh Bachchan, Kiara Advani, Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn and others is Kareena Kapoor Khan, who worked with the late actor in his last Bollywood outing, Angrezi Medium.
Taking to her Instagram, the actress shared a BTS picture from Angrezi Medium’s set that featured a smiling Irrfan Khan, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Dimple Kapadia and Deepak Dobriyal. In her caption, Kareena revealed that it how it was her absolute honour to share screen space with Irrfan Khan and offered condolences to the departed soul. Kareena addressed Irrfan as ‘sir’ and that shows how respected the actor was throughout the film industry. “It was an absolute honour, sir. Rest in peace,” read her caption.
Indeed an irreparable loss for the entertainment industry. Check out Kareena Kapoor Khan’s heartfelt tribute below:
Some time back, Radhika Madan, too, expressed her sorrow. Her official statement read, “I don’t know what to say... my heart aches when I write this. He was one the strongest people I knew, a fighter. And so are Sutapa ma'am, Babil and Ayan. I’m just grateful that our paths crossed in this lifetime. He is and will always be an inspiration to many. A legend. The man who changed the wave of the Indian film industry. May his soul rest in peace.”
Our heartfelt condolences to Irrfan Khan’s family. (ALSO READ - Irrfan Khan Dies Of Cancer: Actor’s Last Rites To Take Place In Versova At 5 PM Today- EXCLUSIVE)
