Irrfan Khan’s death has not only shocked and saddened the entire Bollywood fraternity but also the entire nation. The actor, who nailed each and every character he opted for, has left for heavenly abode leaving his beloved family and fans under trauma. We still can’t believe the actor par excellence, who was full of life and struggled for months with cancer, has left the world at the age of 53.
Kangana Ranaut, who was fortunate enough to share the screen space with talented actor Irrfan Khan, shared her side of the story. Kangana has worked with the actor in two movies - Life...In A Metro and Knockout. Panga actress was under shock when he heard this news. While speaking to Times Of India she said, “The news has been extremely unsettling for everyone. He was such a charming, happy person that everyone loved him. It was very difficult not to like him. Even after the news of his health came about in the last two years, when he returned to films, every one of us had high hopes about his recovery.”
“My first Anurag Basu too has been through a situation where he's recovered. Irrfan Khan was one person who started off as a character artist and went on to become a big Hollywood star. In true sense, if there's someone who's had a breakthrough in Hollywood mainstream, it's him and it's purely because of his talent. The fact that he became an international star and rose from where he was, his goodwill made sure everyone around him was happy and proud of what he had achieved. Nobody ever had any feeling of jealousy with Irrfan sir and that's beautiful. Nothing will ever complete this void and we are all shaken, but he has lived a good life," she added.
Well, not only this but she also added, “He was a very colourful, happy positive person. He loved poetry, ghazals and was an extremely liberal person at heart. He wasn't judgmental at all and was an absolute delight to spend time with. His parties would be different. It was never the usual Bollywood techno ones with loud music. He would call these budding poets and writers and there would be a poetry session. Six-seven of us would often chill at Sai Kabir's apartment. He was such a charming man, his sense of humour was terrific. He was a sucker for life and wanted to live every moment of his life to the fullest. And he did.” (ALSO READ: Irrfan Khan Demise: When Irrfan Khan And Deepika Padukone Joked About Him Doing Pushups To Build Chemistry For Piku-Video)
Speaking about working with Irrfan, Kangana Ranaut told the leading website that they were very close friends. When she was doing Revolver Rani, they were part of the same circle because of Tigmanshu Dhulia and Sai Kabir. She also said that all used to jam together. “When they worked together in Knockout, we didn't strike a bond then. But later, we were planning to do a film together which was an Indo-French production called Divine Lovers and we were romantically paired opposite each other. That was the time when I got to spend a lot of time with him. Unfortunately, that film got shelved although I know Irrfan ji tried reviving that film later as well,” she added.
