Irrfan Khan left for heavenly abode when it was not his time. However, the Hindi Medium actor had been battling neuroendocrine cancer since 2018. A case of a Colon infection that took him away from the world. The loss is unprecedented and unbearable for his family and Indian cinema. Recently, the late Qarib Qarib Single actor’s son, Babil Khan and wife, Sutapa Sikdar attended the International Film Festival of India in Goa. There, Irrfan’s film, Paan Singh Tomar had been screened which left the mother-son duo highly emotional. Babil had also taken to his Instagram handle to express his emotions on seeing his father on-screen again.
After the event, Babil Irrfan Khan opened up on venturing into films and filmmaking. However, being busy with his graduation, the actor has put that dream on a hold for a while. Babil opened up on doing films in the Hindi film industry and carrying his father’s legacy forward, saying, “I have to do it the right way. I don’t want to do a big movie in which I am dancing, it makes a 100 crore and has no artistic value. My intention is to take his (refers to his father Irrfan) legacy forward. Not to become a star. It has to be done in the right way.”
Talking about attending the 51st edition of IFFI in Goa, a couple of days ago, Babil shared a post with Irrfan’s picture and a throwback of himself with his father. “Today, I need to share this as @iffigoa made it possible to watch and hear him on the big screen one more time, that to in Paan Singh Tomar. (This man exuded a younger energy than me in his late 40s even) P.C: @mridulvaibhav,” he wrote about his experience. Check out the post below:

Sutapa Sikdar gave a speech at the event. She said, “I remember Irrfan had dreams in his eyes. It’s a special moment because it’s an honour and privilege to be given a tribute. I’m happy to be here, this is the first time I’ve come out of home. But one needs closures to walk ahead, and IFFI is a closure. Irrfan’s finish line came too soon, but he played well. We’re proud of you, Irrfan.”
