Irrfan Khan died last year on the 29th of April after having fought a two-year-long battle with cancer. News of his death sent shockwaves throughout the film industry especially since it was immediately followed by news of actor Rishi Kapoor’s death. A year later, much has changed in the world but the vacuum left behind by these stars hasn’t been filled yet. Khan’s last film was Angrezi Medium where he starred opposite actor Radhika Madan, Khan took home the Best Actor in a Leading Role (Male) Award at the Filmfare Awards 2021 for the same.
Now, on his first death anniversary, Madan has shared an emotional post remembering him. “I remember I was playing with his beard before the shot and he told me you know what maybe this is the reason ‘Champak’ would not have cut his beard…I was like exactly! And we laughed,” she wrote. “We had created our own pool of memories, our own bubble where there were no words. Silences spoke out loud. Where I was trying very hard not to be this ‘I wanna learn everything from you’ fan girl and he was unknowingly teaching me either about life or art every single day. To endless silent teachings and love. To this phenomenon people call Irrfan,” she added.
