It’s a special day for Irrfan Khan’s admirers.
The great actor who bid farewell to the world last year would have turned 54 today. And though he is no more with us, his memories and work will forever be etched in our hearts.
On his birth anniversary, Irrfan’s son Babil has shared a small clip from the old days and wrote a beautiful note along with it. Giving a glimpse of the personality of the actor and how he believed in celebrating each and every day, Babil shared a moment from his birthday.
In the video, Irrfan could be seen having a difficult time with the technology as the family tries to send their greetings to Babil. In the special note, Babil also wrote, “You never identified with institutions such as contractual marriage and birthday celebrations. Perhaps, that is why I don’t remember anyone’s birthdays because you never remembered mine and never encouraged me to remember yours. It was just normal to us what seemed absurd from the outside, we celebrated everyday (bringing personal experiential authenticity to the cliche). On the occasion, Mamma would have to remind us both; but this time I could not forget yours if I tried.
It’s your birthday Baba.” and gave a huge shoutout to all the technologically inept parents.
Yash Raj Films also took to their social media handle to share a post on the birth anniversary of the brilliant actor. Along with the words ‘Remembering Irrfan Khan’, the production house shared a picture of Irrfan and made us miss him even more.
