MUMBAI: It has been a month since Indian film industry lost its shining star - Irrfan Khan.

The actor's wife Sutapa Sikdar took to Facebook to share a heartwarming note remembering her husband and cherishing the time they spent together with a promise to meet again. The 54-year-old actor lost his battle to a rare form of cancer, and passed away in a Mumbai hospital on April 29, leaving behind his wife and their two sons - Babil and Ayaan.

Quoting Sufi poet Rumi, Sikdar wrote, "'Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I'll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass the world is too full to talk about.' It's just a matter of time... Milenge baaten karenge... Till we meet again."

Along with the note, she also shared two throwback photographs of the late actor.

Irrfan had stayed away from the public eye after being diagnosed with the neuroendocrine tumour in 2018 and later went to the UK for treatment.

The actor returned to the country in 2019 and shot for "Angrezi Medium", the sequel to his 2017 hit "Hindi Medium".

However, his health condition prevented him from promoting the movie, which hit the theatres in March just before the coronavirus-forced nationwide lockdown that began on March 25.
