On Irrfan Khan’s first death anniversary, his wife Sutapa Sikdar took to social media to pen an emotional note and shared some heartbreaking moments from the night before he passed away. Taking to Facebook, Sutapa recalled how she along with Irrfan's friends were singing songs to him in the hospital April 28, 2020, a day before his demise.
"Last year tonight me and my friends sang songs for you,all your favorite songs. The nurses were looking at us strangely as they were used to religious chants in critical times but I had overdone that for you irrfan morning evening and night for two years and since they told me it was time I wanted you to go with memories you loved …so we sang songs….next day you left for the next station I hope you knew where to get down without me..363 days eight thousand seven hundred and twelve hours..when each second is counted .how exactly does one swim this huge ocean of time."
Further, Sutapa also talks about Irrfan’s ‘interest in mystery of numbers’ and shared how the clock stopped for her at 11.11 on April 29, 2020 as the actor breathed his last. She also talks about the difficulty of changing her name after her husband’s demise.
She wrote, "My fingers kept stopping on that how could I just take his name away and make it sutapa, I was unable to sign took a day off and the name game played on my mind."
Ending her emotional note, Sutapa apologised to Irrfan and all others who passed away during the pandemic and not giving them a proper cremation. She wrote, "All of you stay in peace remember us that we loved you, all of you. And remember all of you is missed by some one or the other ..all your families grieve ..may you all rest in peace! "
