National Award-winning actor Irrfan Khan, who was admitted to Mumbai's Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital with a colon infection, passed away on Wednesday afternoon.

As leading personalities mourned the death of Irrfan Khan, his fans, too, paid tributes to the extraordinary actor. The 53-year-old Piku star battled a cancerous tumour for several months and returned to Mumbai a few months ago after being treated in London.

Filmmaker Shoojit Sircar was among the first to confirm the news on Twitter.

Soon after the news of Khan's death broke, his fans across the globe were left heartbroken. #IrrfanKhan, #RIPIrfan and other hashtags related to the actor became the top trends on Twitter. Many even refused to accept the news, labelling it as rumours.


Another Twitter user @ChaudharyChakit, wrote, "With passing away of #IrrfanKhan, Indian Cinema has lost one of its brightest stars today. A brilliant actor who mesmerised everyone with his versatility and performance, went too soon. Our deepest condolences to his family and friends in this hour of grief. (Sic)"


The self-effacing multiple awards winner, who acted in films as diverse as Life of Pi, The Namesake and Maqbool, had stayed away from the public eye after his diagnosis in 2018 when he went to the UK for treatment. He returned home in 2019 and shot for Angrezi Medium, the sequel to his 2017 superhit Hindi Medium. However, his health condition prevented him from promoting the movie, which hit the theatres in March just before the lockdown, that began on March 25.
