On Wednesday, 29th April, the world was rocked by the passing of cultural icon Irrfan Khan. One of the most accomplished actors of his generation, Irrfan also achieved international acclaim and popularity. News of his death has flooded social media with tributes and remembrances.
One moving tribute comes from filmmaker Anand Gandhi, the creative director of film Tumbbad. “I have been recording conversations between scientists, entrepreneurs, policymakers, and artists as a part of a continuing film project,” says Gandhi. “In a hotel lobby of the INK Talks Conference in 2015, I paired people who didn’t know each other together, for candid freewheeling conversations. I offered them only three cues – the self, the ecosystem, and the future of humans.”
On Twitter, Gandhi added, “Great artists are sieves through which the zeitgeist sifts it’s dreams, hopes, joys and anxieties. Irrfan Khan was one of the greatest artists I had the privilege to know. He has imprinted upon each one of us parts of himself that we shall carry and pass on.”
