Babil Khan is keeping his father, Irrfan's memories alive through anecdotes and throwback pictures on Instagram. On Friday, the actor got emotional and penned a heartwarming note remembering him. He shared a picture and went down memory lane.
Babil's caption read, "Nobody knew him like I did, nobody has known me like he did. It’s easy to say, to miss him, it’s easy. It’s easy to be cathartic and cry about losing him. It’s easy. Do you know what is hard? To remember the ecstasy in his voice when he would raise it in exaltation to scream “BABILUUUU!!!” every single time he’d see me. To remember then, how painful it would be to lose him for the stretches of barren time when he would be away shooting."
He added, "It is impossible to bear the memory of how his beard felt on my fingers when I would scratch his cheek as he read his script or how my fingertips would rest gently on his eyelids when he took a nap. His voice, was brilliantly deep, yet it evoked nothing but a gentle prayer from me, a prayer that could only rise from one’s within when an external force has calmed your existential jitters to stillness. I wish I could have one last dance with you. “And to tell you, that without your lessons, I never would have survived.” I will look for you. I will find you again. Somewhere. Beyond."
Babil followed his father's footsteps and became an actor with the Netflix film, Qala. He was last seen in the acclaimed web series, The Railway Men.
