A few days ago, Irrfan’s mother Saeeda Begum passed away. This happened in Jaipur. Irrfan could not be a part of her funeral physically due to the lockdown. He saw it through video conferencing and paid his last rites. She was 95.

I am content that we have been able to make a happy film. So, the answer is: no, I am not nervous. I am just happy and nothing else.”
The actor fought a hard battle with cancer for almost a year. He was getting treated in London. Fans prayed his quick recovery. Our best wishes are with his family at this moment.
