Babil Khan took to Instagram stories and shared the post. Irrfan’s wife Sutapa Sikdar recently took to Facebook and penned a heartfelt note after Qarib Qarib Single completed 4 years.
Take a look:
Sutapa shared a Facebook memory from 2017 where Irrfan had shared the critics’ reaction to his film Qarib Qarib Singlle. Along with it, she wrote, “When the sleep disorder still continues even after one and a half year. And FB opens the flood gate of memory a new one each day and sahir saab says ‘tum hote toh yeh hota” as irrfan really wanted to recite this poetry once somewhere.” For the uninitiated, Irrfan breathed his last on April 29 last year after a prolonged battle with cancer.
