Slumdog Millionaire, Life of Pi Actor Irrfan Khan Dies Aged 53

The entertainment biz has grown a little duller with the recent passing of Bollywood and Hollywood star Irrfan Khan.

The 53-year-old Indian actor succumbed to a cancer on 29 April as a result of a colon infection caused by an endocrine tumour, which he was diagnosed with back in 2018. A spokesman confirmed Khan’s family was around at his death in a statement.

Indeed, showbiz was a lot richer with the presence of Irrfan Khan, who was one of the first modern Indian stars to enjoy considerable success in the West. He featured in the likes of Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire in 2008, Ang Lee’s Life of Pi in 2012, and Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World in 2015, and much more.

Khan’s achievements in modern cinema will not be forgotten. Rest in peace.
