Sutapa Sikdar gave a speech at the event. She said, “I remember Irrfan had dreams in his eyes. It’s a special moment because it’s an honour and privilege to be given a tribute. I’m happy to be here, this is the first time I’ve come out of home. But one needs closures to walk ahead, and IFFI is a closure. Irrfan’s finish line came too soon, but he played well. We’re proud of you, Irrfan.” Also Read – Irrfan Khan’s son, Babil, reveals that he’ll look at film offers after his graduation in May

Paan Singh Tomar was made by Tigmanshu Dhulia, who is one of his closest friends. Talking about his late friend, he told the Hindu, “The industry will look to someone else [to fill his spot] but the people who really knew him know the kind of loss not having Irrfan around is. Very few people, and I can count myself in that list. I have not seen anybody around who can prove themselves worthy of his space. More than that, the kind of human being he was, and the actor that his humane qualities made him… aisa banda hai nahi koi (there is nobody like him).” Also Read – Trending Entertainment News Today: Fukrey 3 villains, Haathi Mere Saathi release date, The Family Man 2 release date

Well, Haasil completed 17 years recently and Tigmanshu Dhulia became all nostalgic. He wrote on Twitter, “I remember the title came to my mind at his rented evershine nagar flat…brainstorming twenty years ago…Haasil.

Irrfan Khan won the Filmfare Award in 2003 for his fabulous performance as Ranvijay Singh, a hot-headed and violent student leader. Critics still rank it as one of his finest. The film was a critical hit but did not rake in much moolah. Today, it ranks as one of the finest films of the 2000’s. Later, Irrfan and Tigmanshu teamed up for Paan Singh Tomar. He has spoken at length how mastering steeplechase was a tough task for Irrfan Khan but he was sporty enough to take it up. He also described him as a keen observer of life, something that contributed immensely to his performances. Also Read – PK actor Sai Gundewar passes away after battling with brain cancer
