The demise of Rishi Kapoor has left the entire fraternity in a state of shock. While people weren’t able to get over the news of Irfan Khan’s passing away yesterday, the loss of another stalwart has left the entire nation in a state of shock. While fans and celebrities have been taking to social media to express their grief, we came across actor Chandal Roy Sanyal tweet where he pointed out about an eerie connect between Irrfan Khan and Rishi Kapoor that he had witnessed. To know more about the incident, we got in touch with him exclusively. Here’s what he had to share about his first meeting with Irrfan Khan in presence of Rishi Kapoor.
Talking about Irrfan’s demise, Chandan said, “The shocking news about Irrfan Sir’s sad demise came as a shock to me because he was like a messiah to all actors, who come from outside. He was an actor, who was maturing and going to the next level with each performance. While we all knew about his health condition but when I heard about his news yesterday it left me in a state of shock.”
Furthermore, the ‘Chef’ actor also opened up about his first meeting with Irrfan in Rishi’s room. “I remember the first time I met Irrfan Sir, it was in Rishi Sir’s room in Ahmedabad. As a junior, I was listening to them as they talked about acting, Raj Kapoor, Guru Dutt Ji, Naushad Saab. In fact, yesterday I was listening to one of Rishi Sir’s interview on the radio and he’s not there today. The biggest regret is that such talented and famous actors had to pass away like this, in a time when people can’t even go and pay their last respects to them. It’s a very, very sad day for everyone,” he said.
