'I have cried to the heavens': Babil Khan pens emotional note on Irrfan Khan's death anniversary

New Delhi: 

It’s been two years to Irrfan Khan’s demise and we have still not processed the fact that the prolific actor is not among us. On this day, in 2020, Irrfan succumbed to colon infection at the age of 53. Babil Khan, Irrfan’s elder son who looks forward to his acting debut this year, has penned an emotional note in his baba’s memory.

Taking to Instagram, Babil shared a candid picture of Irrfan sitting beside his wife Sutapa Sikdar. In the picture, the couple is accompanied by some foreigners on a boat. The picture is from their family trip to Norway. Sharing the picture, Babil wrote,

Dear baba. 

I’m trying to remember that perfume you wore, when we travelled north to watch lights dance in Norway. I remember exactly, the feeling of your smell, but I can’t remember the materialism of it.

Babil added, “I remember the sensation on my fingertips when you spread my palms to tell my fortunes but it frightens me to forget your playful pinch on my nostrils. I have begged, and I have cried to the heavens, to let not my body forget yet; for my soul is not ready to forfeit. I am not ready to move on, and I am alright with the idea that possibly I will never be, we were never governed by logic.

He also penned down a poem as he shared his father’s fond memory. 

You and I, singular and cosmic.

Everything is, and yet it is not;

You’re a perfect teardrop in my asylum.

I was mindful and yet I forgot,

my intonations of violence.

You still breathe, in my thoughts;

and our institutions of madness.

I miss that, what I fought;

your explorations of silence.

“A creation of yours, Babil,” he signed off the post. 

Meanwhile, Babil is all set to make his acting debut with Netflix film ‘Qala’. The film, produced by Anushka Sharma and her brother, will feature the debutant alongside Tripti Dimri of Bullbul fame.
