Babil Khan is keeping alive the memories of his late father Irrfan Khan in the forms of pictures and videos. He has been treating all the Irrfan Khan fans with some unseen pictures and videos of the late actor. Now, Babil has shared about a book that he gave to his father when he was 12 years old. Babil rediscovered this book in Irrfan Khan's cupboard and found the notes his father had been writing for him. Babil has shared a few notes too with fans.
Babil has shared the video of the book. As it opens, Babil has addressed Irrfan as the 'Greatest Dad'. In the caption, Babil has mentioned that Irrfan Khan hated being called as a 'dad'. Calling it a 'Book of Eli', Babil wrote, "I just found this book in Baba’s cupboard that I had given him when I was like 12 (he used to hate it when I used to call him ‘Dad’ but whilst puberty global westernisation was beginning to ripen) He had been writing notes on acting for me in it that I think he was going to teach me after film school, so I guess I have just found the ‘Book of Eli’."
Further, he shared the initial few notes on acting that Irrfan Khan penned. "1. The intent - general but specific emotion like displacement, if you are unable to identify with a specific situation. 2. The text is holy in context eg. the woman in the man, self-pity, sexual politics etc. 3. Follow the action of the text sincerely and the required emotion will arise - the intention of the lines are to tell a story and not to pass information. 4. Drama has to be created, it cannot be represented or portrayed like a fact." Check out Babil's post here:
This book can in fact serve as a theory to those wanting to learn acting.
