From the small screen to the big screen, Mohit Raina has already gained huge success with a great fan following. However,the actor was about to have an experience of a lifetime, of working with the late Irrfan Khan, before the actor fell ill.
As New Indian Express reports, film-maker Vishal Bhardwaj had signed both actors for a future project. “Before Irrfan sir was diagnosed with his illness, there was a project we were supposed to do together. I was excited that I was going to be part of this project. It was a feature film by Vishal Bhardwaj,” Raina was reported expressing.
He went on to add, “Then, he was diagnosed with the rare illness, and Vishal Bhardwaj decided that he wanted to make the film only with him. So, he put the project on hold. I was looking forward to working with him but unfortunately it didn’t happen. I was positive that as soon as things would be fine, he would return and the project would be revived.”
Khan had been diagnosed with cancer in 2018. He sadly passed away at the age of 53 on 29th April. Talking about Khan, Raina expressed, “It’s a huge loss for everyone. I was really looking forward to that one day when he would come back and we all will revive that project and work on it.”
“He will be remembered as someone who could never be fitted in a box for years. When you think about it, it’s painful that we lost a great artist and person. I feel blessed that I got an opportunity to interact with him a couple of times and meet him a couple of times”, he went on to express.
