Versatile Bollywood Actor Irrfan Khan passed away today. The actor was 53 years old, and was admitted to the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani hospital in Mumbai yesterday due to health complications.

Irrfan was diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumour in 2018 and sought treatment in the UK for a year. The actor returned to India in February 2019 and shortly resumed shooting for his film, Angrezi Medium. Khan’s mother, Saeeda Begum, died on Saturday (25 April) at the age of 95, with Khan attending her funeral via video chat.

The Padma Shri (2011) Awardee made his Bollywood debut with Mira Nair's Salaam Bombay in 1988, and has worked in numerous films since then. In his illustrious career spanning for over two decades, Irrfan Khan portrayed a wide range of leading and supporting roles in films of all genres.

He has made his presence in only one South Indian film, titled 'Sainikudu' (2006) directed by Gunasekhar.
