2020 has surely not been a bearer of good news for the world, certainly not for bollywood. Amidst this emergency COVID 19 situation, the entertainment industry has had a loss nobody can ever make up for. Just a day after Irrfan left for his heavenly abode,veteran actor Rishi Kapoor said his final goodbye. With the untimely demise of Irrfan Khan & Rishi Kapoor bollywood has undoubtedly lost its finest.
“Irrfan was a strong soul, someone who fought till the very end and always inspired everyone who came close to him,” quoted his family. “We all pray and hope he is at peace “. The actor revealed that he had been diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumor via Twitter in March 2018.
“I trust, I have surrendered”; These were the some of the many words that Irrfan expressed in a heart-felt note he wrote in 2018 opening up about his fight with cancer. And a man of few words and an actor of silent expressions with his deep eyes and his memorable actions on screen. It’s saddening that this day, we have to bring forward the news of him passing away. Irrfan was a strong soul, someone who fought till the very end and always inspired everyone who came close to him.”
Irrfan Khan’s demise is a loss to the world of cinema and theatre. He will be remembered for his versatile performances across different mediums. My thoughts are with his family, friends and admirers. May his soul rest in peace.

“After having been struck by lightning in 2018 with the news of a rare cancer, he took life soon after as it came and he fought the many battles that came with it. Surrounded by his love, his family for whom he most cared about, he left for heaven abode, leaving behind truly a legacy of his own. We all pray and hope that he is at peace. And to resonate and part with his words he had said, “As if I was tasting life for the first time, the magical side of it.” is what his agent’s statement said.
