“We all die. The goal isn’t to live forever, the goal is to create something that will”. It feels like this amazing quote was just written for the late legendary actor Irrfan Khan.
He is no more with us physically, but he will always be having a special place in our hearts. We lost this gem on 29 April 2020 and Since the actor passed away, no one could match the aura of this astounding performer. The impact that he created with his remarkable performances is alive in every fan’s heart.
On the late actor’s birth anniversary on January 7, 2022, his son Babil Khan paid an emotional tribute to his father. His tribute has left every other person in tears.
Debutant Babil Khan pays an emotional tribute to his ‘baba’
Babil Khan is the son of Irrfan Khan and he recently made his debut with Netflix’s critically acclaimed show called Qala.
A few days ago, it was the late actor Irrfan Khan’s birth anniversary. It was the day when the actor would have turned 56 years old. On this special day, his little one dedicated a speech to him which is now going viral on the internet.
Babil Khan performed an emotional speech at Spoken Fest 2022 where he said as we quote,
“Baba was around forever. He’s going to be around forever. So then life decided that it was time for Baba to move on from this world. And then, Baba, my bestest friend, my soul mate, disappeared forever from my life.”
The audience went numb as Babil went on to deliver the speech. Everyone had teary eyes.
He went on to narrate a beautiful story of how Irrfan made him meet the god
In the almost 10 minutes video, Babil was seen narrating some beautiful experiences with his father. One was how Irrfan Khan made him meet the god. He shared the tale with the audience as he said,
“One day after his night shoot, Baba came back and I was like baba I want to pray, I want to talk to God. I want to meet God. So Baba was like okay, we’ll go meet God. Baba got the car ready the next day and put me in the car and we left for Igatpuri. He took me to the stream and laid me on the water, with my back on the water.”
“So, I was floating with my back and he let me go, and as soon as the river started to take me, I hesitated, I splashed around and I tried to regain control. For nine days straight, this man has put me on the water with my back on the water, he’s let me go. And for nine days straight, I’ve hesitated. But on the tenth day, I didn’t hesitate,” he added.
The actor concluded by saying,
“Baba watched me float away and as soon as I think a rock was about to hit my head, he lifted me off the water and he said, today, you have prayed, today you surrendered, today you met God.”
Babil also recalled the time his father would make him practice scenes, as he got emotional
Babil shared that,
“Every time he would make an attempt to bond, I would dismiss him. And baba somehow he caught onto the desire that I want to be an actor. So, he would come to me and he’d like, ‘Babilla come, we’ll practice this scene.’ And I would shrug him off. And I’d be like, it’s okay, we’ll do it tomorrow, what’s the hurry?,” said Babil Khan in his performance.
It was definitely one of the most emotional tributes that left every other person in tears.
