Late actor Irrfan Khan's son Babil Khan could not control his tears after he received an award on behalf of his father. For the unversed, Irrfan was posthumously honoured with the Best Actor in a Leading Role and Lifetime Achievement Award for his final release 'Angrezi Medium' at Filmfare Awards 2021. Babil was all teary-eyed missing his father at the event.
Catching the emotional moment of her son, Sutapa Sikdar has shared a heartwarming poem dedicated to her son where she said that her son’s courage lies in his tears. The picture is from an awards show where he broke down as the host declared openly that Irrfan had won the Best Actor award for his last release, Angrezi Medium.
She wrote in Hindi, "Bada kadak launda hai, vo chup chup ke nahi sabke saamne zor zor rota hai vo, bada kadak launda hai, baap ke yaadon ko sametta hai naazuk ungliyon se bikherata hai unhen khushboo ki tarah... (He is a very strong man. He cries in front of everyone, not secretly. He is a very strong man. He gathers the memories of his father with delicate fingers, spreads them like a fragrance)."
Sutapa didn't attend him to the award show but she had helped Babil with his clothing for the event. During their conversation, Sutapa affirmed that she wished to come to the event but wouldn't accompany him.
After Babil asked her the reason, she said, "No, I can't face people." Babil gave her a hug and shared the video writing, "Mamma dressing me up." The Filmfare Awards were held in Mumbai of March 27. Babil attended the award show in his father's clothes.
Meanwhile, pursuing his father’s footsteps, Babil is all set to give rise to his acting debut with Anushka Sharma produced Netflix Original film Qala. The film furthermore features Tripti Dimri in the lead role.
