Irrfan Khan's mother, Saeeda Begum, passed away on Saturday morning in Jaipur. She was 95. 

Owing to the travel restrictions implemented across various parts of the world due to the coronavirus pandemic, Irrfan paid his last respects through video conference. According to family sources, Irrfan is in Mumbai.

Hailing from Rajasthan's only Muslim state during the pre-independence era, Tonk, Saeeda Begum belonged to a Nawabi family and was also a poet. She left behind three sons: Salman, Imran and Irrfan. Saeeda Begum and her husband were residents of Tonk and Irrfan's childhood was also spent there.

Her younger son Salman said, "My mother had been ill for some time. But suddenly her health deteriorated on Saturday morning. Recently, she had inquired about Irrfan bhai's health."  

Given the restrictions due to the lockdown, only a handful of family members could participate in the burial ceremony at Chungi Naka graveyard on the outskirts of the city.

Irrfan, who was recently seen in English Medium, has also been ill for some time. In June 2017, he went abroad for the treatment of neuroendocrine tumour and has been recovering ever since. He has kept giving updates related to his health to fans through social media.
