Babil often shares posts remembering his father. On Wednesday, Babil shared a heartfelt post on his Instagram. He shared a throwback photo of his baba and penned a note remembering him.
Babil remembers baba Irrfan Khan
In his caption, Babil revealed how Irrfan Khan ‘loved being a father more than an actor’. He added that he misses baba’s laughter. The Qala actor wrote, “Those eyes that watch 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.”
Babil added, “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.”
The actor went on to add, “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 loved being a father more than being 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.”
Fans react to Babil’s emotional post
Fans got emotional. Reacting to Babil’s post, a fan dropped a comment saying, “He would be so proud of you Babil. I wanna see you thrive in this industry just like your baba did. He was an amazing actor he still is for sure.” Another fan commented, “The best.” “You are his reflection on earth. And you and your mom will always keep him alive in your actions and remembrance,” wrote a fan.
For the uninitiated, Babil made his acting debut with Netflix’s Qala. The actor will be next seen in the upcoming web series, The Railway Men. The show also stars R Madhavan, Kay Kay Menon, and Divyendu Sharma. Babil finished shooting for the show in May.
