Irrfan Khan’s son Babil Khan often shares memories of his father or expresses the conflicts he faces with heartfelt notes. Despite his demise, the late actor continues to be one of the finest talents in the history of Indian cinema and his loss will always be difficult to fathom.
Now, Babil is gearing to take on the mantle and step into the film industry. The aspiring actor will soon make his acting debut and he has been working hard for the same.
Taking to his social media handle on Monday, Irrfan penned a touching note for his friends and announced that he was dropping out of college in order to pursue his acting career. The aspiring actor will soon make his debut with the Netflix drama Qala, opposite Triptii Dimri. The film will be directed by Anvitaa Dutt.
Sharing a few candid pictures of himself shooting a scene and expressing gratitude to his college friends for making him feel at home ‘in a strange cold place’, Babil Khan called him his ‘truest friends’ in an Instagram post on Monday.
His Instagram post read:
“I will miss you so much. My beautiful friends. I have a very tight circle here in Mumbai, literally 2-3 friends in total. You all gave me a home in a strange cold place and made me feel like I belonged. Thank you, I love you. Film BA, dropping out today, with over 120 credits cause I’m giving it all to acting as of now. Goodbye university of Westminster. I love you my truest friends (sic).”
In a previous Instagram post, Irrfan’s son Babil Khan shared that he has bagged a film with director Shoojit Sircar and producer Ronnie Lahiri. Babil shared pictures on his official social media handle and announced the good news as he wrote:
“Honoured to work with you legends (aye it's a shame we didn't take a picture together @zaynmarie)."
This collaboration is special as the director and the producer have previously worked with Babil’s late father and actor Irrfan Khan in the film Piku. Ronnie Lahiri also talked about the same in his post as he shared the same pictures.
