Bollywood industry has witnessed many outclass stars who shined all over the world, and the whole world illuminated by their sparkling light. Irrfan Khan is one of those celebrities who will never be forgotten over the time.
Khan was brought to Kokilaben Hospital in Mumbai with a complaint of colon infection in a critical situation and admitted to the intensive care unit on Tuesday. The following day, Wednesday, the sad news came out with the statement: “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 was born in Jaipur to a tyre seller. After failing in his cricket career, he admitted himself in a drama school. He worked diligently in this field despite no clear signs of improvement.
To his disappointment, he could only manage to appear in dramas and television industry. His first work was a letter writer in Salaam Bombay in 1988. He was not satisfied with his current situation and thus never stopped putting in more and more effort. The time turned around and he was successful in making a breakthrough to his career by getting a role in “The Warrior”, which was shot in India and was released in 2002. After this success, his way into mainstream indian film industry became clear and he paved it with perfection.
