Many Bollywood celebrities took to their social media handle to pay tribute to our legendary actor.

Akshay Kumar, who shared the screen space with the late actor in the film Patiala House, tweeted,

It’s not far off the mark to say B-town has been a roller-coaster ride as, within less than 24 hours, we witness the demise of two legends. Yesterday, the Internet was breaking with the death of Life Of Pi star Irrfan Khan.

It’s a big loss for the Hindi film industry.
