Irrfan Khan, an Indian filmstar who brought a modern sensibility to recent hit movies and featured in several Hollywood films such as Life of Pi and The Namesake, died on Wednesday.


Khan’s death, after a prolonged battle with cancer, was confirmed by a spokesman for the actor in a brief statement.


Khan was among the first Indian actors to make a consistent mark in western cinema, following earlier crossover pioneers like Saeed Jaffrey, Roshan Seth and Om Puri. Reuters
