Today marks one year since Irrfan Khan died, and celebrities have been paying tributes to the acting genius on social media to mark his first death anniversary. Among them is Radhika Madan, who was Irrfan Khan's co-star in his last outing,Angrezi Medium. Travelling down memory lane, the actress posted a behind-the-scenes still from the film sets on Instagram, accompanied by a touching caption. "I remember I was playing with his beard before the shot and he told me you know what maybe this is the reason 'Champak' would not have cut his beard...I was like exactly! And we laughed...," a part of the post read.
Adding that they created their own "own pool of memories" and "own bubble where there were no words", she continued, "Silences spoke out loud. Where I was trying very hard not to be this 'I wanna learn everything from you' fan girl and he was unknowingly teaching me either about life or art every single day. To endless silent teachings and love. To this phenomenon people call Irrfan".
Radhika concluded the note by saying that she misses the legend. Dil Bechara actress Sanjana Sanghi dropped a heart emoji in the comment section. Rasika Dugal of Mirzapur fame also responded with two hearts. While actress Tillotama Shome sent "Love. And more love", fashion photographer Atul Kasbekar called the picture, "beautiful".
Irrfan's son Babil, who will be making his acting debut with Anushka Sharma-backed Qala, also posted an emotional message on the day. Sharing a rare photo of his father, he wrote, "There is a legacy that has already been concluded by my Baba himself. A full stop. Nobody can ever replace him. Nobody will ever be able to. To the greatest best friend, companion, brother, father, I ever had and ever will have. I love you so much, for the rest of this chaos we are choosing to call life".
The late star's wife Sutapa Sikdar opened up about his last moments in the hospital and posted his snap on Facebook.
