Irrfan Khan’s wife Sutapa Sikdar often shares her views on social media, and she recently took to her Facebook and wrote a lengthy note as to how she views the insider-outsider debate. She shared a message for ‘messiah of outsiders’, and added that Irrfan Khan wasn’t affected by ‘insiders’ not calling him for Holi parties, neither did he seek anyone’s approval in Bollywood. She clarified that her note had nothing to do with late actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
Sutapa began her lengthy note by giving her own example of how she is a sum total of varied cultures and what defines her today, is not just her roots. She then addressed the ‘messiah of outsiders and wrote, “I kind of feel you the one who is pretending to be the messiah of outsiders who most probably is not even from the industry is putting me into a bracket and underlining for the whole world to see I am an outsider and also hence pity me? I don’t want your patronization. Did you ask any “outsiders “ if they want this intervention??”
She then wrote how if people considered their work a spiritual quest, they wouldn’t be said if they didn’t get called for ‘parties’. Speaking about how none of this bothered Irrfan, and how he would focus on honing his craft, Sutapa wrote, “Irrfan did not get a cover page of a film magazine for many years he did not waste his time gossiping about people or bad-mouthing nor did he get depressed, he chiselled his craft ..and refused to be part of it till he got the cover page and he did. (he got mostly depressed not clinically but sad, looking at the disparity in the society.)or once or twice went to brink of breakdown preparing for roles not because so-called insiders did not call him for holi parties.”
She added that no one owns Bollywood unless one thinks there are some people who own this industry. “The Bollywood couldn’t do a sh*t about Irrfan getting Hollywood offers.” She also added that Irrfan didn’t feel the need to be a part of these ‘parties’ and questioned about those that feel left out. “In one hand we call them toxic and on the other, we are offended if they don’t include you. It’s a weird desire you are yourself giving them the power by seeking for their validation,” she wrote.
