A year has passed since the demise of legendary star Irrfan Khan and yet, the void remains for his fans, friends, family and loved ones. The prolific actor and even more loved human being left his mark on people's hearts. On his death anniversary today, son, Babil Khan has now penned a note on social media where he expressed how the legacy that the actor left 'can never be replaced.' Further, Babil even shared a photo of the late actor from his chemotherapy days and showed everyone how Irrfan found joy in a simple thing such as building his own table or writing his journals. 

Sharing a note, Babil expressed that he is yet to find the pure joy in doing simple things like writing journals, building a table like his father in his chemotherapy days. Sharing a photo of Irrfan Khan from those days, Babil remembered his baba and wrote, "Chemo burns you from the inside, so to find joy in the simple things, like building your own table to write your own journals. There is a purity, I have not yet discovered. There is a legacy that has already been concluded by my Baba himself. A full stop.

Further, expressing how his father's legacy cannot be taken over, Babil penned how much he misses Irrfan. He added "Nobody can ever replace him. Nobody will ever be able to. To the greatest best friend, companion, brother, father, I ever had and ever will have. I love you so much, for the rest of this chaos we are choosing to call life. I miss you, more than all that shah-Jahan/mumtaz stuff; I would have built a space monument that could have taken us to the furthest parts of a blackhole singularity you were always intrigued by, but I would have been there with you Baba, and we could have gone together, hand in hand. (Exploring the last mysteries)"

Babil even shared a photo of Irrfan's note on a book's first page where he penned his thoughts in the 'last stages of evolution.' In his own handwriting, Irrfan penned a note about his 'life in London' on June 25th 2018. Sharing the photo of his baba's handwritten note, Babil wrote, "Need I say much? My Baba, last stages of evolution."

Anonymous : That table must be very precious to the family. And if his son wants to remember his dad on his death anniversary, let him be. If you don't like it, just ignore the messages. You are not forced to read it. There are a lot of fans who appreciate the memories that his son shares.
