Several celebrities are mourning for Khan’s passing. Khan is popular for his films “Jurassic World,” “Life of Pi” and “Slumdog Millionaire.” The “Maleficent” star and “Quantico” actress looked back and shared how Khan touched their lives.

Jolie had the chance to work with Khan on the set of the 2007 drama “A Mighty Heart.” According to Brad Pitt’s ex-wife, the late actor was very generous in his craft.

“He stood out for his generosity as an artist, which made it a pleasure to work in any scene with him,” Jolie told the BBC.

“I remember the intensity of his commitment, and equally his smile. I send my condolences and my sympathy to his family, his friends, and all admirers of his work, in India and around the world.”

Chopra also worked with Khan for “7 Khoon Maaf” in 2011. For her, Khan brought charisma to everything he did.

“The charisma you brought to everything you did was pure magic. Your talent forged the way for so many in so many avenues. You inspired so many of us. #IrrfanKhan you will truly be missed. Condolences to the family,” Chopra wrote on Twitter.

Konkona Sen Sharma, an Indian actress and director, praised Khan for having the courage to be himself in the industry. She added that the world is a “lesser place” without Khan and people will surely remember him.

Khan and Colin Trevorrow worked together for “Jurassic World.” According to the director, he was deeply sad after hearing Khan’s passing.

“Deeply sad to have lost #IrrfanKhan. A thoughtful man who found beauty in the world around him, even in pain. In our last correspondence, he asked me to remember “the wonderful aspects of our existence” in the darkest of days. Here he is, laughing,” Trevorrow wrote as caption to a photo of the late actor he shared on Twitter.

Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India, also paid tribute to Khan. According to Modi, the actor’s “demise is a loss to the world of cinema and theatre.”

Khan died on Wednesday (April 29) at the age of 53. He was laid to rest at Mumbai’s Versova burial ground, Khaleej Times reported.
