Mumbai: Bollywood stars have been making headlines everyday for their generous donations to help those in distress during the coronavirus-induced lockdown.
Irrfan Khan didn’t, despite doing his bit, because he believed that charity work should be done ‘silently and with dignity.’ No wonder that very few people knew that hhad contributed for Covid-19 patients.
Recently, while talking to Pinkvilla, one of the close friends of late Irrfan revealed that the actor made donations for Covid-19 patients but didn’t discuss about it with anyone.
“With the coronavirus situation we were creating funds to help people. When we spoke to his brother, he was ready to help and even Irrfan helped us with funds for poor people. His only clause was nobody should know that he had helped. As a family, they believe that the right hand shouldn’t know what the left hand has given. For him, it was more important that people feel relieved”.
‘Maqbool’ actor Irrfan passed away on April 29, 2020, at the age of 53. He was suffering from colon infection and was diagnosed with neuroendocrine cancer in 2018.
He is survived by his wife Sutapa Sikander and two sons, Babil and Ayan.
