Actor Irrfan Khan passed away on April 29 after a prolonged battle with neuroendocrine tumour. He was 53.

Director Kabir Khan, who directed Irrfan Khan in New York, recalled an incident when Irrfan got teary-eyed while watching Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s performance in the film. He added that Irrfan was not on the sets when that scene was shot but when he arrived on the sets, he wished to see it as that particular scene became the talking point.

New York, released in 2009, saw Nawazuddin Siddiqui playing the role of Zilgai, a victim of the Detention system introduced by former American President George W. Bush. The film starred John Abraham, Katrina Kaif and Neil Nitin Mukesh in the leading roles.

Post New York, Kabir Khan collaborated with Nawaz yet again in his 2015 blockbuster Bajrangi Bhaijaan, where he played an important role of a television journalist, who helps the protagonist (Salman Khan) make a young girl reach her hometown safely.
