Irrfan Khan’s wife Sutapa Sikdar has shared a heartbreaking tribute to her partner, on the first anniversary of his death.

The Slumdog Millionaire star died on April 29 last year following a battle with a colon infection aged 53.

Sharing tributes to social media overnight, both Khan’s wife and son, Babil, penned beautiful messages, with Sutapa opening up on the final moments of Khan’s life.

The writer shared on Facebook: ‘The nurses were looking at us strangely as they were used to religious chants in critical times but I had overdone that for you Irrfan – morning, evening, and night – for two years, and since they told me it was time, I wanted you to go with memories you loved.

‘So we sang songs.’

Sharing the star died at a ‘mystical’ time, she went on: ‘The clock had stopped at 11.11 on 29 April for me .…Irrfan you had a keen interest in the mystery of numbers, and funny you had three 11’s on your final day. Some say actually many say this is a very mystical number 11/11/11.’

Sutapa added she was hesitant to change her name, as she dealt with all the upheaval in her life.

She wrote: ‘My fingers kept stopping on that how could I just take his name away and make it Sutapa, I was unable to sign, took a day off and the name game played on my mind.’

Sharing a sweet recollection, she went on: ‘It’s been a long journey of correcting each other spanning a life time. Fighting arguing laughing evolving together. You were the loner in a crowd. And now a whole crowd has followed you up there..

‘All of you stay in peace remember us that we loved you, all of you. And remember all of you is missed by some one or the other ..all your families grieve ..may you all rest in peace! I hope there is enough space I hope some of you will forgive us for not been able to give a respectable cremation [sic].’

The pair’s son Babil also shared a memory of Khan alongside a shot of the actor assembling a desk.

He penned on Instagram: ‘Chemo burns you from the inside, so to find joy in the simple things, like building your own table to write your own journals. There is a purity, I have not yet discovered.

‘There is a legacy that has already been concluded by my Baba himself. A full stop. Nobody can ever replace him. Nobody will ever be able to.

‘To the greatest best friend, companion, brother, father, I ever had and ever will have. I love you so much, for the rest of this chaos we are choosing to call life. I would have built a space monument that could have taken us to the furthest parts of a blackhole singularity you were always intrigued by, but I would have been there with you Baba, and we could have gone together, hand in hand. (Exploring the last mysteries).’

Khan was rushed to a Mumbai hospital for treatment on Tuesday, April 28, 2020, and placed in intensive care due to a colon infection. However, he died the day later, with reps confirming the news with a statement.

The Bollywood icon had a tough time with his health, also battling a tumour in March, 2018.
