Sutapa Sikdar and Irrfan Khan

Producer and wife of late actor Irrfan Khan, Sutapa Sikdar, has penned down an emotional note, recalling the late actor’s wish to recite the famous poem from Amitabh Bachchan’s Silsila, 'Tum Hoti Toh Aisa Hota'.

Irrfan Khan died early last year after a long battle with a neuroendocrine tumour.

Tanuja Chandra’s Qarib Qarib Singlle turned four on Thursday, and Irrfan's pictures surfaced on Sutapa's Facebook memories. 

Soon after the release of the film in 2017, Irrfan had shared a collage of positive reviews for the film and wrote, “The love keeps coming in.” The film marked the Bollywood debut of Parvathy.

His wife Sutapa shared Irrfan’s post and wrote, 

“When the sleep disorder still continues even after one and a half years. And FB opens the flood gate of memory a new one each day and Sahir Saab says ‘Tum Hoti Toh Aisa Hota’ as Irrfan really wanted to recite this poetry once somewhere.”

She further added, 

“Bachchan Saab's iconic voice had travelled many a times in student days and Irrfan used to marvel at it but twenty five years later Sahir Saab took the lead in Fandom over Bachchan Saab and Irrfan in those late night conversations would say ‘Yaar mujhe bolna tha yeh… ek baar (I really want to recite this… once)’ but some journey's abruptly stop. And leave you #qaribqaribsinglle Kuch log itne qareeb hote hain ki unke bina bhi woh zindagi mein qareeb hi rehte hain (Some people are so close to you, they remain around you, even when they are not)#irrfan.”


Let us tell you, Babil is all set to make his acting debut with ‘Qala’ co-starring Tripti Dimri of ‘Bulbul’ fame and Swastika Mukherjee.

Qala is a beautiful, heart-breaking story about a daughter who craves her mother’s love. The film is backed by Anushka Sharma’s production house.
