The whole nation is still mourning his demise and remembering his work. Ritika Vats, who worked as a makeup artist on the sets of ‘Angrezi Medum’, which was Irrfan Khan’s last Bollywood movie, also felt nostalgic while talking to about the legendary star. She did not work for Irrfan, but did Radhika Madan, Dimple Kapadiya, Ranveer Shorey and a few other actors in the movie. However, she was lucky enough to watch Irrfan Khan live in action both in front and behind the camera, and thus, while talking to us she said “In the world of ‘heroes’, we have lost an ‘actor”. “It was a privilege and a dream turning into reality to be on sets with him (Irrfan Khan). I as a celebrity makeup artist have come across many celebrities and had a good experience but when I was on sets with Irrfan sir, it was a different experience, I didn’t feel like that I was working with ‘THE IRRFAN KHAN’, he was so humble, gentle, and a very common man I can say”, said Ritika. Recollecting memories from the sets of ‘Angrezi Medium’, Ritika added “I remember, on sets he used to treat his team like a family, even the entire crew used to support and respect him in the same manner. Also he maintained a good balance between his work and health. Irrfan sir was so down to earth, that I and even the team present on set never felt that we are working with a global star. I guess this is one of the reasons people are going to miss him forever. Especially the ones who have spent time with him on sets.” Since Ritika got a chance to catch Irrfan as a live wire in front of the camera, she couldn’t help but narrate what she saw. “He was a one-take actor. His acting was so natural. He was so into his character, that even on sets right after cut he continued acting, like he was unstoppable. I must say Indian cinema has lost a gem”, she said. “I feel so blessed that I have met him personally and seen him acting, which was a dream for many. He was and he will be the greatest talent of our nation. Our entertainment industry will never be the same without him. It would not be wrong to say that he was and till date is the exact definition of an ‘artist’. In the world of ‘heroes’, we have lost an ‘actor’”, she added. “And lastly I would like to say, his wife Sutapa ma’am, what a strong lady she is. Heartfelt condolences to his family. I wish the almighty would give them all the strength to deal with the loss”, concluded Ritika Vats.
