Popular Bollywood actor, Irrfan Khan, who crossed over to Hollywood, is dead.

He died at the age of 53 on Wednesday in India’s entertainment capital, Mumbai, after being admitted to hospital for a colon infection earlier this week, BBC reports.

Khan was diagnosed with a high-grade neuroendocrine cancer in March 2018.

The deceased starred in iconic Indian films such as Vishal Bhardwaj’s crime drama Maqbool, the comedy Piku and his breakout performance in Mira Nair’s Academy Award-nominated Salaam Bombay.

In his later years, Khan transitioned to Hollywood where he starred in Jurassic World, Inferno and The Amazing Spider-Man and Life of Pi.
