Irrfan Khan passed away in Mumbai after suffering from colon infection. The actor was battling cancer for a year and emerged victorious from the same.
During that time, he had a special message for his fans, which was announced ahead of his comeback film ‘Angrezi Medium’ trailer release. The heartwarming message has now made way into fans’ hearts yet again.
Irrfan spoke about the ‘unwanted guests’ and started his message saying, “Hello brothers and sisters. This is Irrfan. I’m here with you and yet I’m not. This film, Angrezi Medium, is very special for me. I truly wanted to promote this film with the same love with which we made it. But my body has been gatecrashed by some unwanted guests, with whom I’m negotiating right now. Let’s see where the conversation goes. Whatever happens, I’ll share with you all.”
He then added, “The saying goes – when life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. Sounds good, but when you get a handful of lemons it isn’t that easy to squeeze them. And yet we always have the choice to stay positive. In situations like these it’s up to us to make lemonade. And with this positivity we made this film.”
Sharing a message of hope, the actor had said, “I hope this film will give you something, and make you laugh, cry and probably laugh again. Enjoy the trailer and be kind to each other and watch the film. And yes, wait for me.”

It is a similar situation for the world right now, where they are divided between staying positive or focusing on the matter at hand – coronavirus. Meanwhile, ‘Angrezi Medium’ was helmed by Homi Adajania. The director remembered Irrfan as someone he ‘laughed about dying’ with. Kareena Kapoor Khan, who was also part of the film, paid her last respects by stating that it was an honour working with Irrfan. The movie also featured Radhika Madan, Deepak Dobriyal and Dimple Kapadia.
