Filmfare Awards honoured late actor Irrfan Khan with the Lifetime Achievement Award and the Best actor award for his role in the movie Angrezi Medium. The awards were collected by his son Babil who grabbed a lot of eyeballs for it. He was spotted wearing the same clothes that his father wore for GQ Fashion Nights 2017. Now, Babil has shared a video on his Instagram, which shows his mother Sutapa Sikdar dressing him up. Babil also revealed the story behind the clothes; check it out!
In a post on Instagram, he shared a video of his mother helping him with the specific final touches of styling. Further in his caption, he also wrote the speech he gave while accepting the award on his father’s behalf. “So in my little speech while accepting baba’s awards from @jaideepahlawat @rajkummar_rao @ayushmannk , I basically said “this is not my place to say anything. People always say that you cannot fit into your father’ shoes but at least I can fit into his clothes. I just want to show all my gratitude to the audience and our industry because of the warmth and love that you have hugged our family with, and all I can really say is that you and I will make this journey together and take indian cinema to new heights, I promise.””
Sharing the story behind the clothes, Babil wrote that Irrfan Khan hated participating in fashion shows and ramp walks, but he did so in these clothes, to break out of his comfort zone. “That is exactly what I was doing last night, tearing though into new spaces that I’m uncomfortable with,” he wrote.
Babil also took to his Instagram stories to reveal that he was asked if he was ‘high’ at the Filmfare Awards last night, because of the shape of his eyes. Read the entire post here.
