Irrfan KhanSutapa’s wife, in a Facebook post on Daughter’s Day, revealed that she and the actor “desperately” wanted to have a daughter. Irrfan, who died on April 29 this year, and Sutapa have two children: Babil and Ayaan. In her post on Sunday, Sutapa shared the story of her second delivery and said that after giving birth to a child, her doctor was unable to break the news to the couple and instead told them, “Congratulations! Healthy child! ” She wrote: “Irrfan and I wanted to have a daughter so desperately that in my second birth my doctor was unable to pronounce the word son and instead said, ‘Congratulations! Well child!’ I was disappointed. Yes, I was. That day for us and today, I feel sad that a girl was deprived of Irrfan raising a girl. ” Daughter’s Day was celebrated throughout India on September 27.

Remembering her husband Irrfan, Sutapa Sikdar often shares emotional posts on Facebook. In one of their previous posts, they posted a photo of themselves and quoted a verse from the Sufi poet Rumi poem A Great Chariot for this title: “‘Beyond the ideas of doing wrong and doing right, there is a field. I will find you there. When the soul lies down in that grass, the world will be too full to speak.’ It’s only a matter of time … milenge, baaten karenge … until we meet again “

On April 29, Irrfan Khan lost his battle with a rare form of cancer and died at the age of 53 at the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital in Mumbai. He is survived by Sutapa and his two children.

A few days after the actor’s death, Sutapa wrote a heartbreaking note, which read: “The only thing that I hold a grudge is; has spoiled me for life. His fight for perfection doesn’t let me settle for the ordinary at all. There was a rhythm that he always saw in everything, even the cacophony and chaos, so I have learned to sing and dance to the music of that rhythm, even with my muffled voice and my two left feet. “

On Monday, Babil also dedicated a post to her father on Instagram. He posted a photo of Irrfan Khan and wrote: “I am working Baba. You pushed the demons, you raised your feelings, no one understands, right? I would give every cell in my presence to remember your skin, my spine.” The cord will twist and my soul may implode, in a quest to feel you close, I wish I had known how it feels to end, so I can begin. “

Irrfan Khan, who worked on several critically acclaimed films such as Paan Singh Tomar, The Namesake, Maqbool, Haasil, Haider, Piku Y Talvar among others, was last seen in Middle Angrezi, which is a sequel to his 2017 hit Half Hindi.
