Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan passed away on Wednesday at Mumbai's Kokilaben Hospital. He was 53.

He was admitted to the hospital on Tuesday for a colon infection. He was diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumour in 2018.

"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"," an official statement from the actor's representative read.

"I trust, I have surrendered"; These were the some of the many words that Irrfan expressed in a heartfelt note he wrote in 2018 opening up about his fight with cancer. And a man of few words and an actor of silent expressions with his deep eyes and his memorable actions on screen. It's saddening that this day, we have to bring forward the news of him passing away. 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 a rare cancer, he took life soon after as it came and he fought the many battles that came with it," the statement said.

Meanwhile, there was no doubt that Irrfan Khan's is Bollywood's most versatile actor, Netflix's video "Irrfan Khan: Bollywood's MOST Versatile Actor" drives the point home.

"Main tha, main hu, aur main hi rahunga. Witness Irrfan Khan's versatility in Haider, Billu, Life in a ... Metro, Paan Singh Tomar and The Lunchbox," reads the video description.
