Chris Pratt paid tribute to his Jurassic World co-star Irrfan Khan, who passed away yesterday. People on Wednesday morning woke up to the unfortunate news of the death of the brilliant actor. Khan’s death was reportedly due to him suffering from a colon infection after being diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumor in 2018. The actor’s untimely demise comes just days after the death of his mother. Moreover, due to the lockdown restrictions in India to stop the spread of COVID-19 pandemic, Khan could not be by her his mother’s side.
