It is Daughter’s Day today, and Bollywood celebrities such as Shilpa Shetty, Mira Rajput, Amitabh Bacchhan, Anil Kapoor, Ajay Devgn, Ayushmann Khurrana, Sanjay Dutt and many others have shared heartfelt posts for their daughters along with beautiful pictures. Late actor Irrfan Khan’s wife Sutapa Sikdar penned a note on social media wherein she mentioned how Irrfan Khan wanted desperately to have a daughter, and shared how on the delivery of her second child, her doctor got nervous about breaking the news that they became parents to a son once again.
Sutapa Sikdar, in her Facebook post, shared a video. In the note along with it, she wrote how she was disappointed and today she feels sad that a girl as deprived of Irrfan Khan’s parenting. She wrote, “Me and irrfan wanted to have a daughter so desperately that on my second delivery my doc could not utter the word son and said instead "congratulations!! healthy child!!". I was disappointed yes I was. That day for us and today I feel sad that a girl child got deprived of Irrfan's parenting of a girl.”
Sutapa Sikdar, in her post, further wrote, “Because just giving freedom is not enough to a girl child. Whatever is happening around makes me say freedom is not about only being vocal it's not about trodding on other's freedom only . Let's get up beyond being voyeuristic beyond the so called emancipation and do something more concrete meaning full for India.” Take a look:
Irrfan Khan passed away on April 29 after a two-year-long battle with neuroendocrine tumour. He is survived by his wife and their two sons- Babil and Ayan. A few days ago, Sutapa Sikdar wrote an emotional note and shared a picture of her hugging her son Babil as left for the UK. She wrote, “You have seen them grow and then they go. "Travel and tell no one live a true love story and tell no one, live happily and tell no one, people ruin beautiful things. '#kahlil Gibran#unconditionallove.”
