Khan won the Best Actor (Male) in a Leading Role for the film, while Hindi Medium was crowned the Best Film. Saba played the lead in the first part of the movie.
Irrfan Khan was one of Indian cinema's finest actors and among its most successful exports to Hollywood.
Khan lacked the looks for a traditional Bollywood romantic lead but made his name as a character actor in Hindi cinema and in Hollywood productions like Life of Pi, Slumdog Millionaire and Jurassic World.
Irrfan Khan starred in the Hollywood blockbuster, Jurassic World. He played the ill-fated, billionaire owner of the dinosaur park.
He was born Sahabzada Irfan Ali Khan on 7 January, 1967 in the Rajasthan village of Tonk. His mother's family had a royal lineage and his father was a wealthy, self-made businessman who owned a tyre business.
Condolences and tributes poured in for popular actor Irrfan Khan who passed awayat the age of 54, after a two-year battle with neuroendocrine tumour. The news of his death was first shared by filmmaker ShoojitSircar.
