Irrfan Khan, one of Bollywood’s most beloved stars who had achieved considerable success in the west, died aged 53. He had been admitted to the intensive care unit of Mumbai’s Kokilaben hospital on Tuesday with a colon infection and on Wednesday morning a statement was released confirming his death.

Best known to English-speaking audiences as the police inspector in Slumdog Millionaire and for his roles in Jurassic World and Life of Pi, Khan was a Bollywood mainstay, acting in hits such as Haider, Piku and Hindi Medium. 

Khan was born Saahabzaade Irfan Ali Khan in Jaipur, the son of a tyre seller, and went to drama school after failing as a cricketer. Initially, he struggled to make headway in the film industry.

Leaders like PM Narendra Modi, Rahul Gandhi and others condoled his death.
