Bollywood icon Irrfan Khan has tragically passed away at the age of 54.

According to Hindustan Times, the Hindi Medium actor was rushed to Mumbai’s Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital on Tuesday and was under observation for colon infection. Unfortunately, as a result, he lost his battle with neuroendocrine tumour.

Irrfan's mother had passed away less than a week earlier.

In the wake of this morose news this morning, condolences from fans are pouring in by the thousands, with many expressing disbelief and shock at the deeply saddening news.


The The Lunchbox actor has long been cited as an inspiration to many actors, and is regarded as a benchmark in acting talent, not just in Bollywood but across the globe. His 1988 debut film, Salaam Bombay! is an Academy Award nominated film.


Fans expressed dismay at the news, sharing how the world deserved to see more of his work - we could not agree more.

Indeed, Irrfan's demise is a great loss for not just Bollywood but for aspiring actors across the globe.
