“We have not come to the terms that Irrfan is dead”, says two times Oscar winning director Asif Kapadia

After a year of Irrfan Khan death, Asif Kapadia and Amit Kumar in their recent interview spoke about their journey with Irrfan Khan.

Irrfan Khan’s First-ever international project ‘The Warrior’ was directed by Asif Kapadia, and the director was seen mentioning Irrfan Khan in his recent interview with PTI. Asif says he has still not come to terms with the fact that Irrfan Khan is no more. He says, “The last time I was in Bombay, Amit and I went to see Irrfan. We have not come to the terms with it. It’s also strange because I haven’t been able to travel really since all of this happened last year.”

Amit is a Mumbai based director. Amit’s Amazon Prime video show ‘The Last Hour’ was produced by Asif. “For me, he was such a warm person. There was more than just his physical being, you felt that there’s something special in him”, Amit added in the same virtual meeting.

Asif is popularly known for his documentaries like Seena, Amy and Diego Maradona. He was even honoured with Oscar for ‘Amy’ based on Amy Winehouse, which has now become the highest-grossing documentary in the United Kingdom. In 2016 he also won Oscar for ‘Best Documentary’.

The Actor of some blockbuster movies like Angrezi Medium, Life of Pi, Jurassic World passed away on 29th April of last year. The Actor passed away due to a neuroendocrine tumour, a rare form of cancer after battling it for two years at the age of 54.
