Amma has come to take me: Irrfan Khan

The actor's last words were reportedly about his late mother

Entertainment Desk April 30, 2020

Bollywood's global icon Irrfan Khan died of colon infection at the age of 53 in the early hours of Wednesday. The actor was admitted to Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani hospital, which is where he breathed his last.

According to a report in DNA India, the actor remembered his mother right before dying. "Amma has come to take me," were reportedly Khan's last words.

Sharing the same, paparazzo Viral Bhayani posted an image on Instagram. "#rip #irfankhan," he wrote alongside the picture. Soon actor Sunil Grover shared a folded hands emoji on the same.


The Life of Pi star's mother Saeda Begum died due to natural causes on April 25, 2020. The actor could not attend his mother's funeral since she breathed her last in Jaipur. He, however, attended her funeral on a video call.

Khan’s younger brother Imran, speaking to Times of India, said how the actor had gone away to meet their mother, who died only a few days back.

He said, “It appears that as Bhaijaan was unable to make it for the burial of our mother, he has gone up there to meet her. Woh kehtey thhe, fikar na karo, main aaonga (he would say, don’t worry, I will be back).”

Imran was with his older brother in Mumbai for almost a month in January this year. “He was very normal and we had a good time. He promised that he would certainly come to Jaipur after he got his medical reports. He was always concerned about everyone, including my mother and others.”

A devastated Imran spoke feeling lonely having lost their father long back and now two other members of the family. “I remember when father passed away, how Irrfan went to Delhi and got admission at National School of Drama (NSD) and I was alone here. And now our mother and Bhaijaan too have left us, I am alone.”
