“Saddened by the untimely demise of noted actor Irrfan Khan. A rare talent and a brilliant actor, his diverse roles and remarkable performances will remain etched in our memories. A big loss to the world of cinema and millions of film lovers. Condolences to his family & admirers,” the President tweeted.

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,” the Prime Minister tweeted.

One of Bollywood’s finest actors, Irrfan Khan had worked in several famous Bollywood films, like “Piku”, “Sunday”, “The Lunchbox”, “Aan: Men at work”, and “Ghaath”.

He had won over millions of fans with his roles in international and Indian films.

His acting career spanned 30 years, encompassing Indian, Hollywood and British films. He was last seen in “Angrezi Medium”, which hit screens before the nationwide lockdown in mid-March.

A National School of Drama (NSD) alumnus, Irrfan Khan shifted his base to Mumbai and acted in numerous television serials, including Chanakya, Bharat Ek Khoj, Sara Jahan Hamara, Banegi Apni Baat, Chandrakanta, Shrikant (Doordarshan), AnooGoonj, Star Bestsellers and Sparsh.

Having made his big screen debut with the Mira Nair’s Academy Award-nominated film Salaam Bombay! (1988), Irrfan Khan came into his own with grey characters in films, like Haasil (2003) and Maqbool (2004).

A national award for Paan Singh Tomar (2011) and accolades for mainstream outings, like Hindi Medium (2017), were only some feathers in the actor’s cap.
