Irrfan Khan has 'elegance and swag in equal measure', says actor's stylist in condolence post
Celebrity stylist Isha Bhansali paid a tribute to Irrfan Khan and said that he was passionate about fashion.
Irrfan Khan passed away today, at the age of 53, after suffering from a colon infection. Amitabh Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu, Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Karan Johar, Anushka Sharma, Dulquer Salmaan, and Shekhar Kapur were among the few personalities from the film industry who paid tribute to Khan.
While the actor has always been heralded as one of the best actors Bollywood has had to offer, his sartorial choices also tread the path of unconventional. Celebrity stylist Isha Bhansali took to Instagram to share that Khan was passionate about fashion and wrote, “He knew his fabrics. He knew his fits (I barely remember doing fittings with him). Black won’t be as bold without him now."

No artist can sink in the loss of her muse. It’s a void of expression. Irrfan Sir, the unmatched legendary actor we always knew, was quite passionate about fashion. Lover of all things art. I did a couple of looks for Piku promotions with him. But it was during the promotions of Hindi Medium when I discovered how much fashion holds dear to him. He knew his fabrics. He knew his fits (I barely remember doing fittings with him). Black won’t be as bold without him now. His personality was a magnet. At his age, he had elegance and swag in equal measure. Not many have them both. And even today I daresay no one can carry off a lungi the way he does. He spelt it with charm, suave and made it look absolutely royal. Cinema aside, Indian fashion has lost a dear muse. I’m forever grateful to his former manager Manpreet @mann012 for having introduced him to me. It’s been an honour. My love goes out to her and Sir’s family. I remember that one time I dressed him up in a suit. He asked me if he looked fine. I said “Sir, tennu suit suit karda.” He blushed and it was confirmed, you cannot escape that smile. Sir, there won’t be another like you. I’m pretty sure you’re in your fashionable best right now. And being the cinematic legend you are. #RIPIrrfanKhan
Bhansali revealed she had worked with Khan on a couple of looks for the movie Piku and also shared a few anecdotes from the shoot of Hindi Medium. She added, “His personality was a magnet. At his age, he had elegance and swag in equal measure. Not many have them both. Cinema aside, Indian fashion has lost a dear muse.”
Khan is survived by his wife, television writer and producer Sutapa Sikdar, and sons Babil and Ayan.
