One of the finest actors of Bollywood, Irrfan Khan, left for his heavenly abode on April 29, 2020, leaving the nation heartbroken. He has left a deep void in the Indian film industry that will be difficult to fill in the coming times. Post his demise, the Angrezi Medium star’s wife Sutapa Sikdar and son Babil Khan have been cherishing his memories on social media by sharing throwback pictures, videos, BTS glimpses of movies, anecdotes, and other related stuff.

Babil Khan has recently shared a few BTS pictures from the sets of Irrfan Khan’s movie Qarib Qarib Singlle. He also recalls a story while he was assisting with the camera team. Babil writes, “There was a shot needed on a Gangtok street but the people would crowd around the set and Baba, soon after a few takes it started seeming impossible to shoot the sequence. So, Tanuja ma’am handed me a guitar and said go 100m away and start performing.” 

He further writes, “She called out a loud “PACK UP!” for the crowd to hear and then I started singing with the guitar and the crowd dissipated towards this new divertissement. As I sung they quickly shot the sequence using natural light and finished the job. True story. Funny. Experience to use for all filmmakers, use your interns in the most creative ways.” Babil ends the post with a hard-hitting note where he takes a jibe at selected news and media outlets. He adds that they control the information that is being distributed to the people and are running a similar divertissement.”

So the story is: I was assisting with the camera team on QQS. There was a shot needed on a Gangtok street but the people would crowd around the set and Baba, soon after a few takes it started seeming impossible to shoot the sequence. So, Tanuja ma’am handed me a guitar and said go 100m away and start performing. She called out a loud “PACK UP!” for the crowd to hear and then I started singing with the guitar and the crowd dissipated towards this new divertissement. As I sung they quickly shot the sequence using natural light and finished the job. True story. Funny. Experience to use for all filmmakers, use your interns in the most creative ways. (The sad truth is most of the times our politics and selected news and media outlets that control information being distributed to our people also are running a similar divertissement.)
