Actor Chandan Roy Sanyal recently shared pictures from his visit to the late actor and friend Irrfan Khan’s grave on Twitter. “Was missing Irrfan since yesterday, beating myself for not having gone to his tomb for 4 months. Today I went, there he was resting alone with no-one around with plants. In silence. I left him some Rajnigandha and took a piece of him back with his blessings. So long #IrrfanKhan,” Sanyal tweeted on September 20, along with pictures of his grave, enveloped by greenery.
Khan, who left us for his heavenly abode a few months ago, was a well–known name not only in Bollywood but in Hollywood industry as well. With his back-to-back hits and outstanding performances, he had bagged a fan following not just in India but all over the world. He is survived by his wife Sutapa Sikdar and two sons — Ayan and Babil.

Upon his demise, his wife had penned an emotional letter, as released by the media, which read, “It’s unbelievable for us but I would put it in Irrfan’s words, ‘it’s magical’ whether he is there or not there, and that’s what he loved, he never loved one-dimensional reality. The only thing I have a grudge against him is; he has spoiled me for life. His strive for perfection doesn’t let me settle for ordinary in anything. There was a rhythm which he always saw in everything, even in cacophony and chaos, so I have learnt to sing and dance to the music of that rhythm, even with my tone-deaf voice and two left feet. Funnily, our life was a masterclass in acting, so when the dramatic entry of the ‘uninvited guests’ happened, I had by then learnt, to see a harmony in the cacophony. The doctor’s reports were like scripts which I wanted to perfect, so I never miss any detail that he sought for in his performance.”

Moreover, recalling his father’s struggle in the film industry, his son Babil, had earlier written on Instagram, “My father gave his life trying to elevate the art of acting in the adverse conditions of noughties Bollywood and alas, for almost all of his journey, was defeated in the box office by hunks with six-pack abs delivering theatrical one-liners and defying the laws of physics and reality. Photoshopped item songs, just blatant sexism and same-old conventional representations of patriarchy (and you must understand, to be defeated at the box office means that majority of the investment in Bollywood would be going to the winners, engulfing us in a vicious circle).”
