🌼🌼🌼 Celebrity deaths have never bothered me. I was never a Bollywood fan. Irrfan was one of the few people that kept my faith in Bollywood reaffirmed. Today that he is gone, it feels like a personal loss I have no words to express. . I shattered today when I heard the news. Art felt like the only way I could barely cope up for the loss. As I began to draw, all I could think of were dark colours and a blue heart, but no, I refuse to accept this. With a lump in my throat I chose the rainbow palette, for may his memories be painted only in colours of love and warmth and blossoms. Today, please let me believe, "An artist never dies". Let me find solace in that phrase, for I see no other way to heal. . Rest in peace, Irrfan Khan You will live in your creations forever. . Love, Aindriya 🌼🌼🌼 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #irrfankhan #rip #restinpeace #artforhealing #indiancinema #indianart #indianartist #artoftheday #bollywood #heartbreaking #ripirrfankhan #missyou #writersofinstagram #artistsofinstagram #artistscommunity #movienerd #bollywoodmovies #nationaldayofmourning #heartbreat #artforhealing #quarantineartclub #quarantinelife #piku #thelunchbox #lifeofpi
