actor

Khan
was
also
honoured
by
the
Producer’s

However,
the

was
spelt
wrong.

Irrfan Khan,

The
2021
edition
Producer’s
Guild
of
America
(PGA)
Awards
were
held
virtually
on
Wednesday
(March
24).
The
pre-tapped
production
of

honoured

to
his
performances
in
movies
like

Inferno,
A
Mighty
Heart,
Life
of
Pi,
Amazing
Spider-Man
,

Notably,
Variety.com
reported
that
the
awards’
pre-tapped
production
messed
up
the
actor’s
name
which
was
displayed
with
wrong
spelling
as
‘Irrif
Kahn’
instead
of
Irrfan
Khan.
Another
typo
was
also
spotted
at
the
awards
show
when
the
name
of

Minari

star
Steven
Yeun
was
misspelled
as
‘Steven
Yuen’.
Steven
had
appeared
as
one
of
the
presenters
at
the
event.

For
the
unversed,
Irrfan
Khan
passed
away
on
April
29,
2020,
after
fighting
a
two-year
battle
with
cancer.
The
actor’s
last
appearance
in

released
a
month
before
his
untimely
passing.
