Here’s How International Media Bid Adieu To Irrfan Khan And His Legacy

Celebrated Bollywood actor Irrfan took his last breathes at Mumbai’s Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital on April 29. The news of his sudden demise not only came as a shock for the entire nation but also internationally. Known for his international performances across genes, foreign publishers also covered his sudden death with a heavy heart. Have a look:

1. The New York Times

The New York Times headline lauded the veteran’s talent to mend in both home and foreign art-forms. The paper compared him to some of the megastars like Om Puri.

Mr Khan was among the first Indian actors to make a consistent mark in Western cinema, after earlier crossover pioneers like Saeed Jaffrey, Roshan Seth and Om Puri.”

2. Daily Mail

Daily Mail reported about his prolonged illness and his friendship with Priyanka Chopra and many other Hoyloodd personalities. The website also mentioned one of his most celebrated works, Slumdog Millionaire.

3. BBC

All that BBC’s headline was reeking was truth in a nutshell. British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) wrote a detailed obituary, writing about the illustrious career and personal life of Irrfan. 

BBC went on to add how he didn’t want to be seen as a person from a specific religion. The report adds that“he tried to drop the family name Khan – preferring to be called simply Irrfan in the credits of his films. He also upset Muslim leaders by criticising animal sacrifice during the Shia religious festival, Muharram.”
