IRRFAN’S SON BABIL PENS HEART-TOUCHING NOTE IN DAD’S MEMORY
Babil Khan, who is still coming to terms with Irrfan’s death, wrote a heart-touching note remembering his father. “Chemo burns you from the inside, so to find joy in the simple things, like building your own table to write your own journals. There is a purity, I have not yet discovered. There is a legacy that has already been concluded by my Baba himself. A full stop. Nobody can ever replace him. Nobody will ever be able to. To the greatest best friend, companion, brother, father, I ever had and ever will have (sic),” he wrote.
He added, “I love you so much, for the rest of this chaos we are choosing to call life. I miss you, more than all that shah-Jahan/Mumtaz stuff; I would have built a space monument that could have taken us to the furthest parts of a black hole singularity you were always intrigued by, but I would have been there with you Baba, and we could have gone together, hand in hand. (Exploring the last mysteries) (sic).”
Irrfan’s last film, Angrezi Medium, released in 2020. He is survived by his wife, Sutapa Sikdar, and sons, Babil and Ayaan.
