letter from the editor

Two tragic! The news that Irrfan Khan had passed away on April 29 came in as a bit of a shock. Yes, he was suffering from neuroendocrine cancer. But we believed that he had beaten the disease after spending a year in Britain. Alas, our hopes were short-lived as the actor died due to complications arising out of colon infection. He was just 53. He was getting the best offers in his career currently when death cruelly snatched him away from us. There was a therav in his acting. One liked seeing him on screen not just for the way he said his dialogue but also for the way he used silences. In Piku, for instance, there’s a scene where he’s asked by Amitabh Bachchan’s character to fix a pump. He…

“i’m here to stay…”

You’re most likely to recognise Shona Sharma’s pretty face, as one of the leads, from the friendly power cast of Wizcraft’s Broadway-type musical Balle Balle. You can also recall her as one of the lovely sopranos in Raell Padamsee’s My Fair Lady. She’s both a gifted singer and an actor. Mostly, home-schooled, she had all the time to learn things her way. “I absorbed much from watching films and TV,” she says. Young Shona left Gujarat in 2013 to reach for the stars in the maximum city. She told her parents she wanted to train as a flight stewardess though the world of performing arts was her dream destination. Mumbai took her on a journey of self-awareness given the struggles. “I began to understand myself better. I know what I…

insider outsider

One was filmdom royalty. The other wanted to play down his royal lineage in Jaipur. One cake-walked into films being the son of the Showman. The other, moulded at the National School of Drama, had to rough it out for decades before turning into a scene-stealer. One was spontaneous. The other studied. But both sensitive. The two actors sharing the screen in Nikkhil Advani’s D-Day was a watershed moment for cinema lovers. Two men. Two missions. One fate. Both killed back-to-back. In real life too, both battled cancer since 2018. Both died within 24 hours of each other. Both will live on eternally. Filmfare pays tribute to the late Rishi Kapoor and Irrfan Khan in a special issue dedicated to the legends……
