RIP Irrfan Khan (1967 - 2020)

This sucks. I always enjoyed his performances.


Irrfan Khan Dies at 53: Tributes Pour in for Late ‘Slumdog Millionaire,’ ‘Life of Pi’ Actor

Irrfan Khan, the Indian actor who became a Bollywood and Hollywood star with credits including Slumdog Millionaire and Life of Pi, has died at the age of 53. Khan was diagnosed with neuroendocrine cancer in March 2018 and passed away in the early morning of April 29 after checking into a hospital in Mumbai, India earlier this week for a colon infection. Khan continued to act in the two years between his diagnosis and death.

The actor achieved crossover success in the U.S. by starring in Mira Nair’s The Namesake (2006) and Ritesh Batra’s The Lunchbox (2013), which resulted in memorable supporting roles in Hollywood tentpoles such as The Amazing Spider-Man, Life of Pi (2012), Jurassic World (2015), and Inferno (2016). Khan would go on to win the Filmfare Award for Best Actor for his role in the Hindi-language comedy-drama Hindi Medium (2017).

Wow, thatís too bad. It seems like his Hollywood career was picking up steam over the last few years.

RIP...a truly tragic loss.

I just recently saw him in Ritesh Batra's The Lunchbox, which was excellent. I highly recommend that one for anyone who hasn't seen Khan in a starring role.

He really was. That's where I discovered how good he was - and he was solid in everything I saw from him after that.

Really enjoyed him in everything I saw him in. So sad as it sounds like he had suffered for quite some time. He really brought a lot of heart to each of his performances. Mesmorizing in everything from Namesake to Slumdog Millionaire to Life of Pi and even great in a smaller, yet very memorable role in Jurassic World. Will have to check out In Treatment, Puzzle and Lunchbox (as well as many others I have missed).

53 is too young to die

Puzzle was a great movie that people should check out with Kelly MacDonald from Boardwalk Empire.
