Irrfan Khan’s son Babil Khan made his Bollywood debut with the Netflix film Qala which was released on December 1. The latest post on his Instagram timeline contains glimpses of his special meeting with noted theater director “Prasanna sir” who was Irffan Khan’s mentor. Babil posted a few returning gems which featured Prasanna, Irrfan Khan and his wife Sutapa Sikdar. There is also a video showing Prasanna and Babil discussing some nuances of acting. It doesn’t end here. That Qala the actor also attached a heartfelt note alongside. He tried to encapsulate his recent experiences in a detailed caption.
Babil wrote: “For the first time, in recent days, I experienced the other side of being an actor. The business of it, the promotion of yourself. Although I committed to it with sincerity and honesty, it was something that did not feel true for me. It was hard because the idea of feeding your own narcissism made me feel dissociated with the spirituality of ‘spectating’ as an art form. I begged for life itself, I searched within myself and I cried one night , I said “please show me a way to stay true to myself.” A few days later Prasanna sir came to our house (one of the greatest acting teachers, baba’s most significant mentor) and discussions with him brought me closer to my roots, I felt closer to my art. I believe that if we think of life as a dear friend and want changes in ourselves, life will return to you, stay close to you and give you opportunities to develop you. I believe life is your only true friend.”
Looks like Babil Khan’s entry went down well with many other actors. Actress Dia Mirza commented, “So true. And so true,” with two heart emojis. Actor Tillotama Shome also wrote, “How wonderful Babil. Campaigns are very difficult; you are asked to explain the unexplainable.” To this, Babil replied with a laugh and two heart emojis. Actor Manav Vij commented, “Lovely.”
Earlier, Babil Khan shared the trailer to Qala, on Instagram. “Anvitaa Dutt’s 2nd World comes to you on December 1 only on Netflix!” wrote Babil.
Babil Khan often shares throwback pictures with Irrfan Khan to relive the memories. Babil shared these photos showing the father-son duo engrossed in a conversation. He wrote: “22 years of subconscious learning.”
Qala is a psychological drama directed by filmmaker Anvitaa Dutt. The film also features Triptii Dimri and Swastika Mukherjee.
