May 29, 2020, marks one month anniversary of the day when a shining star extinguished forever, leaving a big void on the interface where 'art' meets 'perfection'. The finest actor of our generation, whom we were fortunate enough to witness in action, breathed his last, making irreparable damage to the industry. Irrfan Khan was one of those actors, who appear once in a lifetime and count your blessings, you managed to exist at the same time he did! Scroll down to check out Irrfan Khan's wife, Sutapa Sikdar's heartfelt note, on his one-month death anniversary!
Sutapa shared a couple of pictures of Irrfan Khan on his first month death anniversary and remembered him in a note which can be read as "Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and right-doing there is a field. I'll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass the world is too full to talk about. It's just a matter of time...milenge baaten karenge.... Till we meet again." In the first picture, the actor could be seen lying on the grass basking in the sunlight, while in the 2nd picture, the happy couple could be seen posing for a selfie. As always, Irrfan Khan had looked beautifully calm and handsome in his own way! Sometimes, it's almost unbelievable that he is not with us anymore, such was his charisma and his ability to bring life to characters!
On his demise, Irrfan Khan's wife, Sutapa Sikdar had released an official statement, citing her pain, her loss, her love and her hope on losing the love of her life. Her letter for Irrfan and his fans had stated, "How can I begin to feel alone when millions are grieving with us at the moment? I want to assure everyone that this is not a loss, it is a gain. It’s a gain of the things he taught us, and now we shall finally begin to truly implement it and evolve. Yet I want to try to fill in the things that people don’t already know. It’s unbelievable for us but I would put it in Irrfan’s words, “It’s magical” whether he is there or not there, and that’s what he loved, he never loved one-dimensional reality. The only thing I have a grudge against him is; he has spoiled me for life. His strive for perfection doesn’t let me settle for ordinary in anything. There was a rhythm which he always saw in everything, even in cacophony and chaos, so I have learnt to sing and dance to the music of that rhythm, even with my tone-deaf voice and two left feet."

The letter had further talked about the 'uninvited guest' that had disrupted their lives for once and all. The letter could be further read as "Funnily, our life was a masterclass in acting, so when the dramatic entry of the “uninvited guests” happened, I had by then learnt, to see harmony in the cacophony. The doctor’s reports were like scripts which I wanted to perfect, so I never miss any detail that he sought for in his performance. We met some amazing people in this journey and the list is endless, but there are some whom I have to mention, our oncologist Dr Nitesh Rohtogi (Max hospital Saket) who held our hand in the beginning, Dr Dan Krell (UK), Dr Shidravi (UK), my heartbeat and my lantern in the dark Dr Sevanti Limaye (Kokilaben hospital)."
