Saif Ali Khan who is not on any social media issued a statement that read, "I have always thought of Irrfan Khan as perhaps the best, most watchable and most natural actor of our times. He was way too young to go. Very very sad news. My thoughts and prayers are with his wife, children, and family. May God bless his soul."


You will be missed and will forever remain in our hearts.. Irrfan Khan, legend... RIP

"I feared that he would be gone much before his time but didn't expect that it will be so devastating and ravaging to me personally. It feels as if I am torn into two parts. A part of me has died with him," said Vishal Bharadwaj. 


What a devastating loss. Absolutely heartbroken.
