You beautiful man.. You were such a rare talent, a thinking mind, a learned man, a Sufi soul with a crackling sense of humour. You always lit up a room with your smile and that infectious laughter. Too many regrets.. but the biggest being never getting to work with you and spend more time with you. Your shadow will look over us forever and your loss will not be forgotten anytime soon. You have left a dent in our souls and a hole in our hearts. @irrfan You are gone too soon. I love you. We love you. I wish you just knew how we are all feeling right now. Your art has touched so many hearts that we feel you are ours. Your art will live on. Your smile will live on. I hope you reunite with your mother on the other side beautiful soul. Fly away! Sour high! Like you always liked it. You are in a better place my friend, you are free now. I love you Irrfan Khan. You will be in my heart, always.

His quiet, electrifying performance in @asifkapadia1 The Warrior rendered me speechless. There was no role he could not make his own. But a little unknown fact, is I met Irrfan on the set of my first Hindi film #Kasoor. He played the opposing lawyer in a courtroom scene, and even in this small role he was impossible to ignore. ‘Well done’ he told me afterwards. He had removed his lawyer’s costume and walked with an even more dignified authority, though he was a struggling actor in those days. He’s a once in a generation artist who set new standards in cinema in India and aboard. I feel irredeemably grief stricken, but in the end we need to celebrate what he illuminated for us on screen through his humane performances. I read that when he embarked on treatment for cancer he asked life to embrace him with the fervour of the lyrics of one of his favourite songs: ‘Lag jaa gale ki phir yeh haseen raat ho na ho, shayad phir is janam mein, mulakat ho na ho’ #IrrfanKhan #devastated #legend
