Delhi Crime famed actor Rajesh Tailang expressed his grief over Irrfan Khan’s demise, said Paan Singh Tomar shared a connection with everyone.
Actor Irrfan Khan has died at the age of 54, after being admitted to Mumbai’s Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital on Tuesday, where was under observation for colon infection. The actor in 2018 had announced that he’d been diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumour.
Talking about Irrfan Khan and his demise, Rajesh said, “He was not just my NSD senior but we belonged to the same state. We both hail from Rajasthan. Everyone felt a connection with Irrfan Khan, as an actor he was so appreciated and loved. He created a whole new meaning of acting. His silence in his acting was so meaningful. He could portray any or all, simple and complex roles with ease and effortlessly”
Further adding Rajesh shared that he shared a personal connection with Irrfan Khan and losing him is like losing his brother.
He added, “I don’t know what to say, I lost my elder brother to cancer, some 3-4 years ago and I have lost one more brother. Although I was not able to get an opportunity to work with Irrfan Khan, and now I will always regret it. I met him regularly during NSD gatherings but now I will never be able to work with him, this is really sad and unfortunate for me. But I think, we all have learnt something or the other, watching him perform, with his work and legacy, I am sure he will always be alive and with us all the time, in our memory, acting and craft”
Rajesh Tailang will be soon seen in Mirzapur 2 and Delhi Crime 2 series.
