Irrfan Khan:-

Sahabzade Irrfan Ali Khan (7 January 1967 – 29 April 2020), more popularly known as Irrfan Khan or simply Irrfan, was an Indian actor who worked in Hindi cinema as well as in British and American films. Often cited in the media as one of the finest actors in Indian cinema, Irrfan’s career spanned over a very short period of 30 years and earned him numerous awards, including a National Film Award, an Asian Film Award, and four Filmfare Awards. He was awarded the Padma Shri, Indian nation’s fourth highest civilian honour, for excellence in the field of cinematic activities.

His untimely demise, after a short period of illness has brought about the nation’s population to grief and brought about condolences. Unlike any other of the contemporary stars , he was one who connected with millions of the common populace, much unknown to the Hindi film stardom. Depicting a common man’s presence, he connected with the man on the street, unlike the other contemporary actors. He was much akin the common man portrayed in R.K.Laxman’s cartoon series, one everyone could identify with, but unique and stand apart type.

An acquaintance of Irrfan, from the early days in Mumbai recalls “He had such passion to learn, surrender and adapt, I knew he would go far. It was his sincerity, which took him ahead, so far ahead.” Noted author Paul Coehlo commented “A star joins other stars in the sky. Thank you for everything, Irrfan Khan”.

Even though he grew in stature, his friends admire his ability to maintain connections with them, even after tasting success and prominence.

That’s what should be in the minds of every Indian, gratitude for the privilege of Irrfan’s company, however short, but extremely fruitful and colourful it has been.

His contributions towards the world of cinema and cinematic creativity will be remembered and recalled forever.
