Actress Kangana Ranaut pays homage to Irrfan Khan: 'He was such a charming, happy person that everyone loved him'

With the loss of Irrfan Khan Bollywood has lost one of its most notable actors. Kangana Ranaut who shared the screen with Irrfan Khan in multiple films including Life in a Metro recently paid homage to the wonderful and charming actor.
 
Talking about the loss of Irrfan Khan, Kangana said, "The news has been extremely unsettling for everyone. He was such a charming, happy person that everyone loved him. It was very difficult not to like him. Even after the news of his health came about in the last two years, when he returned to films, everyone of us had high hopes about his recovery. My first Anurag Basu too has been through a situation where he's recovered. Irrfan Khan was one person who started off as a character artist and went on to become a big Hollywood star. In true sense, if there's someone who's had a breakthrough in Hollywood mainstream, it's him and it's purely because of his talent. The fact that he became an international star and rose from where he was, his goodwill made sure everyone around him was happy and proud of what he had achieved. Nobody ever had any feeling of jealousy with Irrfan sir and that's beautiful. Nothing will ever complete this void and we are all shaken, but he has lived a good life."
 
Kangana also remarked that Irrfan was an incredibly humble actor who loved poetry and ghazals. She said, "He loved poetry, ghazals and was an extremely liberal person at heart. He wasn't judgmental at all and was an absolute delight to spend time with. His parties would be different. It was never the usual Bollywood techno ones with loud music. He would call these budding poets and writers and there would be a poetry session. Six-seven of us would often chill at Sai Kabir's apartment. He was such a charming man, his sense of humour was terrific. He was a sucker for life and wanted to live every moment of his life to the fullest. And he did."
