loss. Only few artists leave the void that he has, and fans as well as colleagues continue to miss him deeply. One of them is Nimrat Kaur, who was Irrfan’s co-star in the much acclaimed film The Lunchbox.

Among numerous tributes that Irrfan received, one is a mural of him, in Mumbai’s Bandra area. Incidentally, that was the same area where Irrfan’s character in The Lunchbox also lived. Nimrat stopped by to take a picture of the mural, and shared it on Instagram. “Chanced upon this arresting mural in Ranwar Village on an errand run today. Incidentally only a few houses down the one where Saajan Fernandes’s house was located in The Lunchbox. Such an ominous yet celebratory confluence of life and art. My heart felt compliments to the artist @bollywoodartproject and a million thoughts and loving prayers for this immortal soul. All that came to the mind was, who knew…#IrrfanForever,” she wrote.
