He was said to be a strong soul who inspired everyone who came close to him.
Unfortunately, Irrfan Khan’s mother Saeeda Begum passed away on Saturday morning in Jaipur. She was 95. Irrfan couldn’t attend the last ceremony due to the lockdown. He paid his last rites through video conferencing.
This is how Bollywood reacted to the passing away:
'Simply Irrfan' was known to be a man of few words. The actor was unconventional in a way that he didn’t take up regular macho roles like most male stars. Most of his roles had substance and his films had a message to convey to society.
He made his screen debut with Academy Award-nominated film Salaam Bombay. Besides Bollywood, he worked in British films and Hollywood. He was awarded the Padma Shri, India’s fourth-highest civilian honour for his contribution to the field of arts. The actor was last seen in the movie ‘Angrezi Medium’.
