Irrfan Khan Passes Away: I Had Asked Him In November '17 If He's Really Fine Since He'd Lost Too Much Weight- EXCLUSIVE
Well, the marvellous actor Irrfan Khan was standing with his back facing me as I entered the hall (in Novotel, Juhu) where I was supposed to interview him. The month was November and the year, 2017. I tapped his shoulder and he looked back and smiled. But believe it or not, I didn't have a smile on my face. I was just shocked to see him so thin. I knew he had lost at least 5-6 kg if not more (especially on his waist and legs) and I asked him: 'Sir, are you fine?' He replied: 'Yes, what happened?'

I told him that 'he had lost too much weight'. He shrugged it off and said that 'it was for a role'. I don't know which role he was talking about but somehow I was not fully convinced with his answer. 


After the interview, his weight loss was still playing on my mind. And I couldn't forget it whenever I thought of him. And then, the shocking news of his neuroendocrine cancer burst into our faces in March 2018. Lekin uske pehle se hi, buzz was that he's suffering from a serious illness.


Why is destiny so cruel? His mother passed away just 4 days back (on Saturday). And now, he himself! Where have we reached? Why is God taking so many harsh decisions, nowadays?

We will be reproducing his last interview with me, shortly.
