The beloved actor, who starred in Slumdog Millionaire and Life of Pi, died on Wednesday at the age of 53.
"It's saddening that this day, we have to bring forward the news of him passing away," his rep said in a statement (via CNN). "Irrfan was a strong soul, someone who fought till the very end and always inspired everyone who came close to him."
