Bollywood Actor and Slumdog Millionaire Star Irrfan Khan Dies After Suffering From Rare Disease
The famed Bollywood star and actor — who had over 150 credits to his name, including notable roles in Slumdog Millionaire, Jurassic World, Life of Pi, and The Amazing Spider-Man — had been experiencing health issues in recent years and was diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumor in 2018, a rare condition affecting cells that release hormones into the bloodstream.

"Sometimes you wake up with a jolt, with life shaking you up," Khan wrote at the time. "Little had I known that my search for rare stories would make me find a rare disease. I have never given up and have always fought for my choices and always will."
Earlier this week, Khan had been admitted to hospital in Mumbai with a colon infection, CNN reported. His representatives confirmed his death to media outlets on Wednesday.

He is survived by his wife, Sutapa Sikdar, and two grown sons, Babil and Ayan.

His own mother died last week, CNN reported, but Khan was unable to attend her last rites due to worldwide coronavirus lockdowns.
