Top Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan, renowned internationally for roles in the hit films Slumdog Millionaire and Jurassic World has passed away.

Khan was known for his nuanced and understated performances, with many calling him one of India's most talented actors.

In 2018, the actor revealed he had a rare cancer.

He later underwent treatment in a London hospital for the illness, which affects cells that release hormones into the bloodstream.

Khan had been in intensive care in a Mumbai hospital since Tuesday with a colon infection.

Tributes have started to pour in for Khan.

Slumdog Millionaire Director, Danny Boyle credits Irrfan Khan with propelling Slumdog Millionaire to Oscar glory.

Bollywood stars and politicians rushed to pay tribute on social media.

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan called the late Khan an incredible talent, a gracious colleague and a prolific contributor to the world of cinema.
