Irrfan’s wife said one of his best qualities was he never lied, no matter what the situation was. “I feel the most precious quality about him, was that he never pretended. If he is angry with you, or he is in love with you. The main thing is when he is in love with you and says ‘I love you,’ he did not pretend. He did not say it, till he meant it.”
Filmmaker Shoojit Sircar, who directed Irrfan in Piku, was among the first ones to tweet about the actor’s death. “My dear friend Irfaan. You fought and fought and fought.
