Late actor Irrfan's son Babil Khan took to social media on Wednesday to remember his father and his contribution to Indian cinema as the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) Goa paid a heartfelt tribute. Babil and mum Sutapa Sikdar were invited for the screening of Paan Singh Tomar at IFFI, Goa, in memory of the late actor. For the unversed, Irrfan had won a national award for this film which was directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia. 

Post the film screening, Babil took to Instagram to share two photos of Irrfan as he wrote, "Today, I need to share this as @iffigoa made it possible to watch and hear him on the big screen one more time, that to in Paan Singh Tomar. P.C: @mridulvaibhav." Take a look at Babil's latest post:

Looks like Babil was definitely moved by watching his baba on the big screen again. Meanwhile, at the film screening, Irrfan's wife Sutapa Sikdar also teared up as she spoke about Irrfan and his legacy. "IFFI couldn''t have chosen a better film. It talks about a race, an athlete. To quote Irrfan''s dialogue from the film, ''you have to finish the race. Whether you lose or win. You have to touch the finish line.' Irrfan''s finish line came too soon. But he played well. We are proud of you Irrfan," an emotional Sutapa said while addressing the audience. She also revealed that it was the first time since her husband's demise that she was attending a public event.
