Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan is missed by family and friends since his demise last year. The actor’s wife, Sutapa Sikdar and elder son Babil Khan constantly post pictures and videos of him and remember Irrfan. Sutapa Sikdar said she did not cry ‘as much as (she) should have’ after her husband’s demise. The writer revealed in an interview that she tried to be too strong post-Irrfan’s death. However, last month, Irrfan Khan’s wife just cried and cried for days.
Speaking with the Times of India, Sutapa Sikdar shared she drove down to Jaipur from Mumbai for a family wedding. She continued, “And when I went there, I just cried and cried. I cried uncontrollably for days... for seven-eight days. 24/7 I cried. I’m not sure why...” The writer added, “One, I think, my children were not there with me, I had gone alone – I didn’t have to be strong.” Sikdar mentioned she is not sure of what happened to her and said maybe it’s the place because the late actor was there. She spoke about getting hints of him being around too. Irrfan Khan’s wife said, “And secondly, I don’t know what happened, maybe it’s the place and he was there since it’s Rajasthan. I think it still holds that connection and it’s very strange, you know, I do get hints of him being around.”
Sutapa explained why she did not cry much after the actor’s demise. Sutapa said, “I think I tried to be too strong, you know. I pretended to be too strong and I took to family responsibilities and duties and everything else. Too early, too strong. My intellect comes in front of my emotional thing. Your mind is always controlling your emotions.” She revealed she does not talk to people much about such topics. Sikdar continued, “I don’t talk to people (about such topics) because I find it so embarrassing to cry in front of people, you know. So probably that’s why I didn’t cry as much as I should have. I don’t know. Probably it’s all bottled inside.”
Irrfan is survived by Sutapa and their sons, Babil and Ayaan. The actor passed away on April 29 last year. He is deeply missed since then. Recently, during the 93rd Academy Awards, Khan was remembered in the ‘In Memorium’ segment.
