Irrfan Khan stood out for his generosity, says Hollywood star Angelina Jolies as she remembered her “A Mighty Coronary heart” co-star, who handed away after a battle with most cancers. The 54-year-old actor died in a Mumbai hospital on Wednesday after a two-year battle with a uncommon type of most cancers. He was buried on the Versova graveyard.
Jolie and Irrfan collaborated on Michael Winterbottom’s 2007 movie about US journalist Daniel Pearl who was killed in Pakistan in 2002.
She performed the position of Pearl’s widow Marianne, whereas Irrfan appeared as Zeeshan Kazmi, the chief of Karachi Police.
In an announcement, Jolie mentioned it was a “privilege” for her to work with Irrfan as she hailed for his dedication to his craft.
“I had the privilege of working with Irrfan Khan on the set of A Mighty Coronary heart. He stood out for his generosity as an artist, which made it a pleasure to work in any scene with him,” Jolie mentioned.
“I keep in mind the depth of his dedication, and equally his smile. I ship my condolences and my sympathy to his household, his mates, and all admirers of his work, in India and world wide,” she added.
Irrfan had adopted up “A Mighty Coronary heart” with Hollywood movies similar to “The Superb Spider-Man”, “Lifetime of Pi”, “Jurassic World” and “Inferno”.
