International actor Irrfan Khan bid goodbye to the world yesterday and it is still hard to believe that the person who was an inspiration for many is no more with us and we are not going to watch him on the big screen anymore. Irrfan fought a pretty long battle with a rare type of cancer, neuroendocrine tumour which got developed in his colon.
Even after falling sick, Irrfan made it a point to share updates with his fans. In fact, when he came to know about his disease, he informed all his admirers and followers through a tweet:

Irrfan’s last movie was “Angrezi Medium” in which he worked with Kareena Kapoor Khan, Radhika Madan, Deepak Dobriyal, Ranveer Shorey, etc. and he had a video chat with some of the team members before the flick was released on Disney Hotstar. He also shared the screenshot of the video chat; however Irrfan’s face was not shown, may be because of the deteriorating condition of the actor. The film could not be released on the big screen because of the lockdown that has been imposed due to the coronavirus pandemic, so the makers decided to release it on the digital platform.
Irrfan wrote the caption, “Catching up with the #AngreziMedium family right before the #AngreziMediumPremiere was absolutely fun!”

The last tweet that was made by the “Maqbool” actor was the one in which she shared the dialogue of his movie “Angrezi Medium” which said that inside he is very emotional but outside, very happy. The caption was, “Mr. Champak’s state of mind: Love from the inside, making sure to show it outside!”

The “Haasil” star was also concerned about the environment and he said that humans should analyse what they have done to the Earth that is getting benefitted because of the lockdown.
Time to reflect why #humancourse have pushed planet and human beings against each other. When #humansarequartined #planet has started breathing again. Many animals are walking freely now, may be #antartica will see more ice.#KaronaKuch pic.twitter.com/Q9PBMSjbKk
