Life of Pi and Jurassic World star Irrfan Khan dies at 53


Yesterday, he was hospitalized in Mumbai for a kidney infection, but his condition is said to have deteriorated.

A statement by its representatives read as follows: “It is sad that on this day, we were to announce his death. Irrfan was a strong soul, someone who fought to the end and who always inspired everyone who approached him.

“After being struck by lightning in 2018 with the announcement of a rare cancer, he died shortly after and led the many battles that followed. Surrounded by his love, his family he cared about most, he left for paradise, leaving behind a real legacy.

“We are all praying and hope he is at peace. “

Khan had been treated for cancer in 2019 in London, after being diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumor.

His death came just days after the death of his mother, Saeeda Begum, at the age of 95. He attended his funeral on Saturday via a video link.

Khan, often known in India simply by his first name Irrfan, began playing on television, after moving to Mumbai from New Delhi, where he studied at the National School of Drama.
