People around the world were saddened to hear the demise of Irrfan Khan, Rishi Kapoor and Sushant Singh Rajput this year.
The Indian Film Festival of Melbourne will be honouring the late actors Irrfan Khan, Rishi Kapoor and Sushant Singh Rajput. As a part of IFFM’s tribute section, the festival will be screening Irrfan’s ‘Song of Scorpion’, Rishi Kapoor’s ‘102 Not Out’ and Sushant’s ‘Kedarnath’ this year.
In a statement, festival director Mitu Bhowmick Lange, said, “Artistes live on through their legacy. These were some fine men who did some incredible movies that resonated with everyone. It was important for us to celebrate their memory. We handpicked some great films for our audience so that we relive a little bit of their lives with them. Their loss to the film industry is irrevocable but the magic of their movies will continue to entertain generations hereafter.”
Irrfan Khan passed away on April 29 after battling with neuroendocrine tumour. Rishi ji passed away the next day, on April 30 after battling cancer. Sushant was found dead on June 14 at his residence. The CBI is currently investigating his death case.
