‘Slumdog Millionaire’ and ‘Life of Pi’ Actor Irrfan Khan Dies at 53

Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan, known internationally for roles in Slumdog Millionaire and Jurassic World, has died at the age of 53.

Khan was known for his nuanced and understated performances, with many calling him one of India’s most talented actors.

He was so highly respected, director Wes Anderson once wrote him a part just so he could work with him.

In 2018, the actor revealed he had an endocrine tumour, a rare illness.

He later underwent treatment in a London hospital for the illness which affects cells that release hormones into the bloodstream.

Bollywood stars and politicians have rushed to pay tribute to him on social media.
