Irrfan Khan’s passing away is still a massive shock for all of us. Time and again in the past couple of months, the world has remembered the icon in many ways. The latest is The Academy Of Motion Pictures Art & Science who have uploaded a video montage of some of the cult films, that also included Irrfan’s Life Of A Pi.
Sharing the video montage that also has Irrfan Khan, The Academy (Oscars) wrote, “A celebration of hope—through the lens of movies we love.” The video includes some of the classic films including The Shawshank Redemption, Her, Children Of Men, Captain Marvel, Little Woman, Anchorman, Life Of A Pi and others.
The montage is enough to give goosebumps to a cinephile. But the end will surely make your eyes wet. The video ends with the scene from the Life Of A Pi where the man asks Irrfan if his story had a happy ending. To which Irrfan Khan replies, “well, that’s up to you.”
