- Neha Dhupia and Irrfan Khan played in the Hindi medium
- Irrfan Khan died in April this year
- The mural was painted by the Bollywood Art Project
Neha Dhupia shared photos of an alley decorated with murals in Bandra near her house in Mumbai, which descends the nostalgic path of all moviegoers. “The art in our corridors … #RIP … #legends … #bandra … # within2kms”, she wrote in legend. Neha Dhupia and Irrfan Khan acted in Hindi Medium and Qarib Qarib Singlle. Meanwhile, artist Ranjit Dahiya, founder of the Bollywood Art Project, and his team painted portraits of actor Irrfan Khan (who lost the battle for cancer in April), actress Sridevi (who died in February 2018) and a scene from an iconic film Mughal-e-Azam, with actor Dilip Kumar and late actress Madhubala.
Here’s what Neha Dhupia shared on Instagram:
Here is the same fresco by Irrfan Khan in progress:
Earlier, actress Nimrat Kaur too traveled by the same mural Irrfan Khan and she wrote: “By chance on this striking mural work in the village of Ranwar in race today. In addition, some houses below that where Saajan Fernandes’ house is located The lunch box. A threatening and festive confluence of life and art. Who would have thought … #IrrfanForever. “
Nimrat Kaur and Irrfan Khan starred in Ritesh Batra The lunch box, in which Irrfan played Saajan Fernandes – the one Nimrat talks about in his tweet. The lunch box is one of the many critically acclaimed films by Irrfan Khan.
Here is Nimrat Kaur’s post:
You came across this striking wall art in the village of Ranwar in the race today. Incidentally, a few houses below the one where Saajan Fernandes’ house is located in The Lunchbox. A threatening and festive confluence of life and art. Who would have thought … #IrrfanForeverpic.twitter.com/ahi79KtNH3
