“I am Irrfan, just Irrfan. I’ve taken out Khan from my name… I do not want to be known by my religion, surname or lineage.” Eight years ago I had interviewed Irrfan & ever since continued to be in awe of this man’s humility and craft. #IrrfanKhan https://t.co/1uAdkUjWzM

मैंने दिल से कहा
ढूँढ लाना ख़ुशी
नासमझ लाया ग़म
तो ये ग़म ही सही
When I wrote these lines for “Rog” I thought I was writing then about my life — but I wish they hadn’t seemed like his autobiographical words right now. 🙏 @irrfank #IrrfanKhan #RIPIrrfanKhan #इरफ़ान_ख़ान pic.twitter.com/qSRIQfKnB0

This is just too sad. I’d worked with #IrrfanKhan in Supari, not our best, but we had a wonderful time together. We met a few times after that & will always treasure the warmth. Not to mention the loss of an incredible actor. Will rewatch his flims to celebrate his life and work.
