Irrfan Khan’s son Babil has revealed that he stopped sharing memories of his late father as many accused him of using Irrfan to promote himself. Babil is expected to make his acting debut with Netflix’s Qala and has already completed one shooting schedule.
An Instagram user had asked Babil, “When will you share something about Irrfan sir?” Babil responded with, “I loved sharing and then I get these Dms all the time saying that I use it to promote myself and that really hurts when I was really sharing memories to fill the void left in his fans. So I’m so confused about what to do. “
He added, “I’m trying to figure out but it really hurts when random people message me saying I’m using his memory to win clout, like I needed to, I’m already son of him, I never needed to do that to win anything. Now I’m confused and a little hurt tbh. So I’ll share when I feel this is the right time. “
Babil shared a photo of his comment section on Instagram Stories and wrote, “For Baba fans wondering why I stopped sharing memories about her.”
Irrfan died on April 29 last year, after two years of battling a neuroendocrine tumor. Babil often shared unseen photos of the actor and his private moments with the family. He also shared stories of their life, treating Irrfan fans to memories of the actor Angrezi Medium.
Sharing a snapshot of his first appearance, Babil wrote last week, “Tripti freaking Dimri is back again !!!!!! Whooooooo !!! (and a little bit of me) Also I’m a bit skeptical about the phrase ‘get launch it ‘because the audience should launch their seats while watching our film and not any single actor. ” By the creators of Bulbbul, Clean Slate Filmz and Anvita Dutt, we’re bringing you #Qala, Netflix’s Original movie. Qala will soon be here to share her story of her struggle for a place in her mother’s heart. “
Amitabh Bachchan has also extended his best wishes for the first appearance of Babil. He wrote, “Anvita ji .. Wishing you all the best .. looking very different .. good to see the make too ..”
