Here are recent posts shared by Babil with subtitles, “Memories in that house by the beach.”
Irrfan Khan, who was diagnosed with cancer in 2018, died in Mumbai on April 29. He is survived by his wife Sutapa Sikdar and his sons Babil and Ayan. Babil is studying movies and he frequently shares lessons he learned from his father about movies, film and acting.
Late on Wednesday, Babil also shared photos of his Madh Island home and said, “This is my father’s old room near the beach before we moved to town. This is where he did most of his work.“
This is my father’s old room near the beach before we moved to town. This is where he did most of his work. As I study acting now, I think of one of the ideas I used to implement; that the trade has immense emotional similarities with playing as a child. At 9 years old, when you hold that cricket bat inside the walls of your room, you can feel the roar of a stadium and see a bowler running to hit your head. When I was holding that nerf gun in my hands, my father’s empty room always echoed in the silence of Madh Island, but at that time there was John Wick surrounded by bad guys with machine guns, gunfire everywhere, and you can hear them, you know . ? I was a woman once, after seeing the Indian chak and I was excited to haggle around imaginary defenders and then I really shot that solid ball with my hockey stick and broke something. Oh, I would always break something, Mom would be very angry. I think you should find the child inside you and keep him alive, no matter how old you are.
Irrfan Khan was one of the leading actors in India who also catapulted to international stardom after appearing in such films as The life of Pi, The namesake, Jurassic world and Hell, among others. At home, he starred in critically acclaimed films like Piku, Haider, Paan Singh Tomar, Maqbool and The lunch box.
