#SushantSinghRajput's death is being hijacked by toxic elements with personal political agendas unrelated to him. Don't let them rob us of this chance to spotlight #mentalhealth. I am re-sharing here my recent interview with #Parvathy @parvatweets. #LetsTalkAboutDepression
It's sickening to see a tragedy being exploited by I-me-myself individuals, a political party & fakes who have grabbed the moment to target social groups they always target anyway, thus drowning out the cause they claim to espouse i.e. nepotism. #LetsTalkAboutDepression (Contd)
So I have decided to spend the next few days sharing articles & SM posts on #mentalhealth here & recommending works of art on the subject that have been a part of my learning process. Please return the favour and recommend shows etc to me 😊 #LetsTalkAboutDepression

When he arrived in Mumbai, he took up a job of an AC mechanic to make ends meet. And even visited Rajesh Khanna's house to fix his AC.

साधारण 15 वर्षांपुर्वी सकाळ वर्तमानपत्रात असताना इरफान खानची मुलाखत घेण्याची संधी मिळाली. एका नामांकित पबमध्ये भेट झाली आणि खूप वेळ गप्पा झाल्या. बाजुला वाजत असलेल्या मोठ्या संगीताच्या आवाजातही इरफानचा खणखणीत आवाज कानावर येत होता. १/७
- प्रभा कुडके, Indian Express #RIPIrrfanKhan
इरफानच्या आयुष्यातील सर्वात महत्त्वाची गोष्ट कुठली होती हे जाणून घेण्यासाठी मी त्याला भेटले होते. मुलाखतीच्या दरम्यान इरफानने त्याच्या लहानपणीची एक गोष्ट सांगितली. इरफानच्या आजीच्या अंगणात एक चमेलीचा वेल होता. चमेलीच्या फुलांचा सुगंध हा त्यांच्या अंगणात दरवळत असायचा. २/७
इरफान त्यावेळी बोलताना मला म्हणाला, त्या चमेलीच्या फुलांनी मला वेड लागायचं. ती फुलं सकाळी कधी उमलतात हे पाहण्यासाठी मी लवकर उठायचो. तो सुगंध मनात साठवुन ठेवायचो आणि माझ्या दिवसाची सुरुवात व्हायची. त्या चमेलीच्या वेलासोबत माझं एक नातं तयार झालं होतं असं त्याने सांगितलं. ३/७

This is a letter written by Irrfan Khan to Shamsur Rahman Farooqi sahib expressing his deep admiration for his magnum opus ‘Kai Chand the Sar e Aasman’ کئ چاند تھے سر آسمان۔ Reveals his good taste, grace & deep appreciation for civilizational heritage.
But equally also his great humility. What a loss!

“Dear shamsur rahman sahab, aadab. Firstly forgive my writing skills I am very very limited in converting my thoughts into written language. But will try non the less.
I was fortunate to speak to you as I have been trying
for quite some time to get in touch with you at last I could.
For years I have a relationship with stories being in the field of cinema.
Stories for me are the biggest platform for sharing my self with the audience…stories which become a part of me…stays with me, speaks to me

Remain to wait for your words & stories ...... #IrrfanKhan
Darya bhi main, darakht bhi main … Jhelum bhi main, chinar bhi main … dair bhi hoon, haram bhi hoon … Shia bhi hoon, Sunni bhi hoon, main hoon pandit … main tha, main hoon aur main hi rahoonga.”

Really sad news. RIP. You were brilliant.
Saw this portrait of him at an exhibition in Delhi some time ago. What a brilliant portrait, this #IrrfanKhan Image
I hardly watch Hindi films or bother about people working in these films. But for Irrfan Khan. So admirable. I recall crying inconsolably like a fool in theatre towards the end of Pan Singh Tomar. And that telephone scene in Billu Barber. He was brilliant.

ہزاروں سال نرگس اپنی بے نوری پہ روتی ہے
بڑی مشکل سے ہوتا ہے چمن ميں ديدہ ور پيدا
Hazaron Saal Nargis Apni Benoori Pe Roti Hai
Bari Mushkil Se Hota Hai Chaman Mein Didahwar Paida

+1 #IrrfanKhan #RIPIrrfanSir #RIPLegend Image
For a thousand years the narcissus has been lamenting its blindness;
With great difficulty the one with true vision is born in the garden.
