Irrfan Khan left a powerful impact on the global map with his performances. His death was a rude shock not just for his fans and colleague in India but for people out of the country as well.

Hollywood stars Chris Pratt, Salma Hayek and Bryce Dallas Howard have paid tribute to Irrfan and called him an 'exceptional talent'.

"So sad to hear that Irrfan Khan passed away, I was a big fan and had the honour to meet him. He was a great actor and a lovely man, may he Rest In Peace," Hayek posted on Instagram.

Pratt, who worked with Irrfan on their 2015 blockbuster 'Jurassic World', called him an "exquisite human being".

"So sad to hear about the passing of screen legend @irrfank . Irrfan Khan played Masrani in `Jurassic World`. He was an exquisite actor and human. He will be missed," Pratt tweeted.

'Jurassic World' Howard posted two pictures of herself with Irrfan from the Colin Trevorrow-directed adventure thriller, and condoled his death.

"Irrfan, you are an exquisite human being and we will all miss you dearly. These images are from the first and last day of filming, and I was lucky enough to spend them working with you. Love to you and your family always," she posted.

Author Paulo Coelho too remembered the actor with fondness and quoted a verse from the Bhagavad Gita in his tweet.
"A star joins other stars in the sky. Thank you for everything, Irrfan Khan “Death is as sure for that which is born, as birth is for that which is dead. Therefore grieve not for what is inevitable.” ― Bhagavad Gita(sic)" Coelho tweeted.
