New Delhi:

Anil Kapoor's heartwarming eulogy post for his Slumdog Millionaire co-star Irrfan Khan will make you cry. Irrfan Khan died in a hospital in Mumbai on Wednesday. In a moving note, Anil Kapoor revealed "one of the many things that" he will "always remember about Irrfan" - Irrfan Khan's smile. Anil Kapoor shared a set of pictures featuring Irrfan and his other co-stars of Slumdog Millionaire including Dev Patel and Freida Pinto and wrote, "These pictures bring back so many memories! There was something about his smile that would instantly make everyone around him smile... One of the many things I'll always remember about Irrfan." Take a look:

A few days ago, Freida Pinto also shared an eulogy post dedicated to Irrfan and wrote about her "role model." She shared a picture from the SAG Awards and wrote an elaborate post remembering Irrfan Khan. "I have this one beautiful and powerful memory of Irrfan - unfazed by the glitzy glamour, no matter which Hollywood icon walked past us. Quiet but not silent- his responses to every interviewer were so meaningful and never lacking humour. He was representing India with achingly high levels of grace and dignity. He stood grounded in reality on every world stage, every red carpet- Grateful and so collected! How lucky was I, a complete little mess of a newbie, to have him as a role model," read an excerpt from her post. Take a look:

This one has hit me hard. A VOID that can NEVER be filled because there was simply no one like Irrfan Khan. His grace and dignity along with his monumental talent as an artist, actor - a portrayer of humanity in all it's shapes and forms made me not only have deep admiration for him but I instinctively wanted to emulate that grace in my career as well. . . There is a picture from the SAG awards( Irrfan, Dev, me and Anil) that sits on my book shelf in Mumbai and everytime I look at it, I am taken down a memory lane of all things so beautiful and joyous about Slumdog Millionaire and the awards celebrations. And in all of it I have this one beautiful and powerful memory of Irrfan - Unfazed by the glitzy glamour, no matter which Hollywood icon walked past us. Quiet but not silent- his responses to every interviewer were so meaningful and never lacking humour. He was representing India with achingly high levels of grace and dignity. He stood grounded in reality on every world stage, every red carpet- Grateful and so collected! How lucky was I, a complete little mess of a newbie, to have him as a role model! . . For those who know of his talent, you know it cannot be replaced. For those who have not yet been introduced to his talent...Oh, do not deprive yourselves please! His repertoire has something for everyone. Warrior, Namesake, Piku, Maqbool, Life of Pi, The Lunchbox, Paan Singh Tomar and ofcourse Slumdog Millionaire. Start somewhere, anywhere! I promise you...Irrfan Khan will be FOREVER carved in your memories too!
