Not Angrezi Medium, Irrfan Khan’s last film was Vishal Bharadwaj’s Sapna Didi

Late Irrfan Khan was Bollywood’s most gifted performers. The actor breathed his last on 29th April this year.
It has been a month to his untimely demise which left a void in the hearts of his fans and admirers. Bollywood and all his fans and admirers are still trying to come to terms with this huge loss. Irrfan Khan was last seen in Kareena Kapoor and Radhika Madan starrer Angrezi Medium.

His role and performance gained attention and positive reviews in the film but the film couldn’t unfortunately run in theatres for a long time due to the coronavirus lockdown. But little did we know that Angrezi Medium was not the last film that the actor did. Yes, you heard that right!


According to a report by Pinkvilla, a source close to Irrfan has revealed that he had shot for Vishal Bhardwaj’s ‘Sapna Didi’ for three days before falling sick. Sapna didi is loosely based on the adaptation from a chapter of Hussain Zaidi’s novel Mafia Queens of Mumbai. For this movie, he did record a few action sequences but he fell terribly ill and as a consequence, the shooting has to be stopped.

The same report stated after Irrfan fell ill and Vishal promised that he would not resume the film until Irrfan is well enough to continue. Unfortunately, the day never comes and it never will. Now, Vishal is just left with a few scenes shot by Irrfan on those three days along with the various memories he left for the director and for us.
