Irfan Sir had a lot of struggle in his life.
It was proved when once someone asked him about life uncertainty
He said that if life gives lemon, then a lemonade should be made, as what is the other option, that means we have to be positive in every odd situation.
A real life full of sorrow and ups & downs. He was very clear, deep and liberal thinking.
And used to say that jihad is not to fight with any particular caste, but to fight with one’s own vices and negative thinking in everyday life is the real jihad.
Fighting and opposing satanic ideology is the real jihad. Irfan sir had such a great thought and insight.
Irfan sir was a diligent and professional actor.
Since 2018, he was battling with cancer, but till the last time he worked hard and completed the shooting of the film Angrezi Medium (2020).

All of us should pray to God to give peace to his soul and give his family the courage to fight this disaster.
