Irrfan Khan was buried at Versova cemetery at 3pm on Wednesday
Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan, who was 54-years-old was buried in the presence of wife Sutapa Sikdar and sons Aayan and Babil at 3 pm on Wednesday.
Irrfan Khan passed away after a long battle against neuroendocrine tumours.
The funeral was small due to the restrictions in place due to lockdown. Not many celebs were present to say goodbye to the most talented actors in the world.
Irrfan was buried at the Versova kabrastan in Mumbai at 3pm this afternoon soon after the news of his passing away was announced. In presence were his family, close relatives and friends. Everyone paid their final respects and mourned the loss of his passing away. We pray for his peace and we hope he’s in a better place today. He was strong in his fight, and we all have to be strong too in this loss.
Filmmaker Tigmanshu Dhulia was seen at the hospital in a mask. Talking to Hindustan Times he said, “I knew him and became friends since National School of Drama (NSD) days, was two years senior to me (1986). This has happened at such a time of coronavirus to such a big actor. I am sad how small his ‘janaza’ (funeral) will be, else it would have been a ‘hujoom’ (mammoth turnout)…I am feeling so sad and living in Mumbai I can’t be a part of it.”
Filmmaker Vishal Bharadwaj, singer Mika Singh, actor Kapil Sharma were a few who had arrived to pay his last respects to the actor.
Irrfan Khan is survived by his wife Sutapa and sons Babil and Ayan.
