Irfans Khan’s son Babil Khan recalled the devastating phase of his life when he lost his father in April 2020 after a long battle with a neuroendocrine tumour. The Qala actor revealed that he locked himself in his room for one and a half months.
In a recent interview with the Qala team on Bollywood Bubble, Babil recalled, “When it first happened, the first day, I didn’t believe it. One week had passed and it hit then. And then I just went into a really bad spiral. I just locked myself in my room for one and a half months.”
He added, “Back then he used to shoot so much that he’d be gone for a long shooting schedule. When it just happened, I had somehow convinced myself that he’ll come back after the shooting schedule. And then I slowly started realising that this is an indefinite shooting schedule. He’s not coming back. I just lost my best friend. It was devastating on a level that I can’t really put into words.”
However, his co-star Swastika Mukherjee revealed that Babil remembered his father in a happier way. The young actor also spoke about how he was motivated to dive into acting after his father’s death.
Babil Khan made his debut with Netflix’s psychological drama ‘Qala’ as a promising singer. Helmed by Anvitaa Dutt, Qala also stars Bulbbul fame Triptii Dimri.
Meanwhile, he will be next seen in the Yash Raj Films web series The Railway Men. Directed by filmmaker Shiv Rawail, the webseries will be based on the 1984 Bhopal gas tragedy.
