Trigger Warning: This article contains references to suicide and death.

Years may have passed since Irrfan Khan’s death, but his memories are etched in the hearts of his fans and especially his family. There was a time when his son Babil Khan, who has been walking in his footsteps and entered the glamor industry, dropped posts about him almost every other day.

He treated his followers with hidden gems from his archives to keep the Piku star’s legacy alive. Although all of his posts about his father grabbed eyeballs, his last night’s post sparked concern amongst his fans. Days before the death anniversary of Irrfan, Babil (in a now-deleted post) spoke about going to him.

Babil Khan shares cryptic post

A user on Reddit shared a screenshot of the now-deleted Instagram story of Irrfan Khan’s son Babil Khan. The Railway Men actor took to his Instagram stories last night and wrote: "Sometimes I feel like giving up and going to baba". Although the actor deleted his post, eagle-eyed fans grabbed a screenshot of the same and expressed their concern about such a statement made by him.

Babil Khan shares pictures of Irrfan Khan

Just a couple of weeks ago, Babil Khan shared a couple of old pictures featuring Irrfan Khan and Sutapa Sikdar. In the first picture, we could see the late actor and his wife, in the middle of a conversation. In the next picture, we could see Babil holding a camera and looking ready to shoot.


The third picture is quite a blurry one, which showcases Irrfan on a film set. Then comes a picture of Babil’s ID card, which had his childhood picture on it. Sharing the pictures, Babil wrote, “Im gonna miss you, you know? Standing under my umbrella. I going to miss you too, but I guess It’s time to dance in the rain now.”
