He has won hearts of critics and audience with his character Jagan, a talented singer in the 1930s. Babil’s mother, Sutapa Sikdar today shared a lengthy post praising her son and also expressed gratitude towards the people who raised him.


In her post, Sutapa also wrote that she misses Irrfan as she desires to discuss their son Babil’s performance in Qala. She wrote that she ‘feels lonely as a single parent’.

Sikdar shared a few childhood pics of Babil Khan with his caregivers and started her post, “It takes a whole village to raise a child.” How very true is that!! in this case it was not a village but a city and babil was raised by irrfan and me , two working people ..he didn’t have the luxury of a joint family of nana dada or a fancy nursery but watching him in “qala” and specially promotions of the film I realized he was brought up well.”

She further wrote, “Will have a long chat with you irrfan on the other side and that’s what I am missing the most today. The biggest desire and want in me is to to wait for you and me to meet and discuss qala our son’s first work.after a long again I felt sooooo lonely as a single parent.”

Towards the end of her post, Sutapa thanked the entire “village” who loved Babil so much and took care of him when he was a child.
