Irrfan Khan’s unfortunate demise on April 29 was a major blow to his fans and colleagues. His loss will always be difficult to fathom for his fans and family - especially for his son, Babil. The budding actor often shares priceless throwback pictures in the memory of his father.
Keeping up with this trajectory, Babil Khan took to Instagram on Monday and shared a major throwback picture with his dad and it's too cute to be missed. Reminiscing about his childhood days, Babil shared a picture which was apparently clicked when Irrfan Khan was shooting for Maqbool in 2003.
In the picture, a young Babil can be seen gazing at Irrfan Khan who is dressed in a black kurta. His caption read: “Maqbool ke bambi ke kisne haath dala?”
Babil’s caption refers to dialogue in Irrfan Khan's 2004 crime drama, starring Tabu, Pankaj Kapur and Masumeh Makhija. The film is an adaptation of Shakespeare’s popular play Macbeth. Helmed by Vishal Bhardwaj, the film did not perform remarkably at the Box Office but won the director international acclaim.
Shortly after Babil shared the post, a fan wrote, “We all miss dear irfankhan”. Another one commented, “Xerox copy”.
Earlier, Babil had shared a screenshot of his chat window with his father and said that he was deleting old and unnecessary chats from his WhatsApp when he chanced upon these messages.
Sharing the post, Babil wrote, “This was intense on a level I could not explain. I was deleting unnecessary chats from my WhatsApp and I found this. For f**k’s sake. I was almost about to text him back just for the thrill of feeling like “mera bhai idhar hi hai mere saath.”
Meanwhile, on the career front, Babil Khan will make his acting debut with 'Qala' starring Tripti Dimri.
