A little excerpt from his long note can be read as "Never imagined shouldering the burden of your loss would weigh so heavy on my heart. “Thank you Irrfan Bhai for standing by me in my times of crises. You were there when not many wanted to even acknowledge me. You are one of a kind and I will continue to use the present tense because for me human beings like you never die. Your persona, your aura, your love for cinema and your philosophy of life will continue to remain an inspiration and guide me.”

According to the Hindustan Times, Irrfan’s family gave a statement that can be read as “Irrfan was a strong soul, someone who fought till the very end and always inspired everyone who came close to him. After having been struck by lightning in 2018 with the news of rare cancer, he took life soon after as it came and he fought the many battles that came with it. Surrounded by his love, his family for whom he most cared about, he left for heavenly abode, leaving behind truly a legacy of his own. We all pray and hope that he is at peace. And to resonate and part with his words he had said, ‘As if I was tasting life for the first time, the magical side of it’.” (Also Read: Ruslaan Mumtaz Captures A Beautiful Mother-Son Moment Of Rayaan Mumtaz And Nirali Mehta)
