THE Khan! . This is the only picture I have with you … 2013, backstage, after winning our respective FF (critics) awards, we were ushered away to take ‘winner’ photos… you won for Paan Singh Tomar… a performance so real, it was unbelievable. We met several times after… I even sought you ought for advice, which you gave patiently… rolling a slim cigarette, sipping on black tea… laughing … talking cinema, politics, spirituality… Today you became one with God… your body suffered in the last two years immeasurably and you fought, fought hard! Even those who didn’t have the good fortune of meeting you feel cheated this morning… the loss is personal, there’s a heaviness about the day… and it will remain that way… perhaps that’s what it means to be a true artist, a people’s star! ? ? ⭐️ Those who knew you were lucky to be touched by your light… your humour, kindness, your evolved attitude towards life… perhaps that’s why God wanted you sooner ? My logical brain gets it, (and I am happy the suffering of your bodily form is over)… but my heart weeps… ??? I mourn along with millions. But the transmission doesn’t end, even when the instrument breaks down … the body maybe gone… but your soul lives on… your legacy is ours to rejoice in! When I miss your talent, I shall watch any of your countless performances… learn and smile … ❤️?? head bowed in respect… folded hands! You’re in a better place, we were lucky to have you for a little while! Gutted.
