Fahadh Faasil pens an emotional note for Irrfan Khan

Acclaimed actor Irrfan Khan 's untimely death sent shockwaves across the country. The 53-year-old actor passed away on Wednesday after battling cancer. Celebs across the country paid their tributes to the much-revered actor.

Malayalam star Fahadh Faasil joined his colleagues to mourn the loss of the talented actor. Sharing a touching note in which he said he owes his acting career to Irrfan Khan, Fahadh acknowledges that he had never met Irrfan or even seen him in person as it was after watching the 'Piku' actor's films that he was inspired to quit engineering school in America and return home to act. Fahadh also writes that in the 10 years that he has spent in the film industry, he regrets not having met Irrfan Khan and shaken hands with him.

I don't think I would have come this far if I hadn't picked up that DVD and watched an actor who changed my life."Recalling an incident when he used to rent DVDs from a store, Fahadh wrote, "On one such visit, Khalid Bhai, the store owner recommended a film called ‘Yuh Hoya to Kya Hota’. The first thing I noticed was that the film was directed by Naseerudin Shah...That night, few minutes into the film, when the character Salim Rajabali (Irrfan Khan) came on screen, I turned to Nikunj (friend) and asked “who is this guy?”. I mean, there are actors who are intense, who are stylish and who are charming. In all honesty, this was the first time I ever saw an actor who was ORIGINAL on screen. And his name was IRRFAN KHAN (sic)."
