Actor Babil Khan often fondly remembers his late father, critically acclaimed star Irrfan Khan, who passed in April 2020 following his battle with cancer. Babil recently penned a heartfelt and emotional note remembering his father. He said that Khan senior was a better father than an excellent actor.
Babil Khan says Irrfan Khan was better father than an excellent actor: “It makes me feel like I didn’t value your concern enough”
Sharing a photo from the 8th Asian Film Awards in 2014, Babil Khan wrote, “Those eyes that watch you absorb a validation which you have already explored to spiritually absorb through internal means rather than the external illusions of self-worth, I’d blame your stubborn determination of committing a lifetime to transcending from innate survival instincts to a journey engraved in cultivating your creative ‘intuitions’, through means greater than ‘understanding and intellect’, and yet in your actions towards the compulsion of celebrity you were truthfully eager to live your/the physical experience of the very ironic phenomenon; as if even with the awareness of what was going to happen, you believed in the uncertainties of the known.”
The actor went on to talk about what he wants to learn from his late father and wrote, “And that for me is the seemingly unachievable mantle I want to hold in relation to the craft of acting; to be aware that a story might have a systematically planned narrative but the magic is the ability to create (through surrender) within the mechanics of artificiality, I want that enlightenment of process so dear in my palms.”
Babil added, “Although, I miss when you used to look at Ayaan and I with that glint in your eye as if nothing else existed, even after you had achieved more than a man could ask from himself, just in those moments I realised you were a better father than an actor, and imagine that after being the best actor in the world. It makes me feel like I didn’t value your concern enough. I miss our laughter baba.”
Meanwhile, Babil Khan made his Bollywood debut with 2022’s Qala. The actor will next star in YRF’s The Railway Men.
