This is what Irrfan Khan told son Babil minutes before breathing his last

New Delhi: One of the most seasoned and loved actors of Bollywood, Irrfan Khan, lost the battle of life against cancer last year on April 20 at the age of 53 in Mumbai’s Kokilaben Hospital. Late actor’s wife Sutapa Sikdar and his son Babil recently appeared in an interview with Film Companion, where his son revealed what his father said to him in his final days.

“I was there in the hospital, two-three days before he died,” said Babil while talking to interview host Anupama Chopra and added, “He was losing consciousness and one of the last things he said…he just looked at me, smiled and said ‘I am going to die’.”

“And I told him ‘No, you are not’. He then smiled again and went back to sleep,” added Babil during the online interview.

Irrfan Khan has given us memorable films like ‘The Namesake’, ‘Paan Singh Tomar’, ‘Haider’, ‘Maqbool’, ‘Piku’ and ‘The Lunchbox’. On Babil’s Instagram feed, one can easily find priceless memories of the son-and-father duo- some from his films while others from his quality time with his family.

The actor was also remembered in the In Memoriam segment of the Academy Awards this year.

In the same interview, wife Sutapa Sikdar shared that Irrfan Khan “never pretended.” Talking about “the most precious quality” about the late actor, Sutapa said, “He never pretended. If he is angry with you, or he is in love with you. The main thing is, when he is in love with you and says ‘I love you’, he did not pretend. He did not say it till he meant it.”

Irrfan Khan and Sutapa Sikdar’s son Babil is all set to make his acting debut from Anushka Sharma-produced Netflix Film ‘Qala’, in which he will be seen next to Tripti Dimri.
