Last Letter Of Irfan Khan From London Hospital Bed | Remembering The Veteran Indian Actor
Irfan Khan (1967-2020) more commonly known simply as Irfan, was a veteran and renowned Indian actor and film artist who died in April 2020 after being diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumor. His career spanned thirty years during which he acted in hit films both domestically and internationally, including Life of Pie, Slumdog Millionaire, The Amazing Spiderman 2, The Namesake, Life In A Metro, and his final release, English Medium.
The release of his final film English Medium was interrupted midway on the big screen due to the COVID pandemic and was released on OTT platforms instead.
Bollywood and the international film fraternity will always remember Irfan Khan and the way he fulfilled each of his on-screen roles, most memorable of which are Piku, Makbool, and Pan Singh Tomar, for which he was awarded with the National Filmfare Award.
Here is his letter to journalist Ajay Brahmatmaj from his hospital bed in London, written soon after his diagnosis with this rare illness. He compares his life to a train ride with all his dreams and hopes riding along, only to be interrupted by the TC saying: ‘your stop has arrived’.
