Irrfan Khan (1967-2020)

Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan has died after a two-year battle with neuroendocrine tumour, reported Hindustan Times.

He was 53.

The report stated that the actor was admitted to a hospital in Mumbai, India, on Tuesday (April 28), where he was under observation for colon infection.

He was diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumour in 2018

Irrfan had not only carved a successful acting career in India, he was also known globally having appeared in Western-produced films like Life Of Pi, Slumdog Millionaire, The Darjeeling Limited, The Amazing Spider-Man, Jurassic World and Inferno.

Although he was battling cancer, Irrfan didn't stop acting. His latest was this year's Bollywood film Angrezi Medium which was released just before India's lockdown.

Another outlet reported that Irrfan’s mother passed away a few days ago. Due to the lockdown, Irrfan couldn't attend her funeral and witnessed it remotely via a video link.

Irrfan is survived by wife Sutapa Sikdar and sons, Babil and Ayan.
