Deepika Padukone with Irrfan Khan in a still from Piku
For Irrfan, ‘Piku’ Co-Star Deepika Posts Black Screen And Broken Heart
New Delhi: Among the many, many tributes to Irrfan Khan – all of them heartbreaking – perhaps the most powerful and most moving came from his Piku co-star Deepika Padukone, who simply posted a blank black image on Instagram with a broken heart emoticon and the actor’s name as a hashtag. No words – both for Irrfan Khan’s death and for Deepika’s post. Mr Khan died in a Mumbai hospital today. He was 53 and had been battling cancer for the last year-and-a-half. Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan worked very closely in 2015 film Piku; they were also meant to co-star in a future project based on Mumbai’s women gangsters.
