Ever since the death of versatile actor, Irrfan Khan on April 29, 2020, the late actor's wife Sutapa Sikdar and son Babil Khan have been sharing precious pictures and videos of their cherished moments with the late actor on their social media accounts. Recently, Babil took to his Instagram account and shared a throwback video featuring his parents.

In the video, Irrfan is walking with Sutapa with an arm around her. Enhancing the romantic mood, the couple starts singing the legendary song Mera Saaya from the 1966 movie, Mera Saaya. Then, Irrfan engages in fun banter with his wife, asking her “Mera saaya ki tera saaya (Your shadow, or my shadow?". Sutapa then tells him "Tera Saaya (Your shadow)". 

Sharing the video, Babil wrote, "Mera saya ki tera saya? Dropping ma off at the airport now (sic)". Take a look at the video here:

"When a man is just born, he is weak and flexible. When he dies, he is hard and insensitive. When a tree is growing, it’s tender and pliant, but when it’s dry and hard, it dies. Hardness and Strength are death’s companions. Pliancy and weakness are expressions of the freshness of being. Because what has hardened will never win." - Tarkovsky . Here’s to watching ‘Stalker’ with you for my first film essay three years ago, I’m watching ‘Stalker’ now for the last dissertation. I pause the film from time to time, just like you did with me, to take it all in, you were teaching me then, now I teach myself. Here’s to you, who never hardened, here’s to your forgiving, sensitive soul.

Recently, he had shared a picture in which we can see Irrfan Khan switching roles and, for a change, go behind the camera. In the image, Babil sits by a lake while Irrfan clicks him with a camera.

Recently, in an interview, Sutapa Sikdar had talked about her late husband what are the qualities that made him an ideal husband and a father, and how he spoilt her for life. She made a revelation and said, "Irrfan was not husband material. Nah, he wasn't."

She added, "I tried to sometimes make him ask for normal things - like celebrating birthdays. But it didn't work so red roses, dark chocolates, diamonds, Valentine's Day etc, were not discussed, leave aside being considered The only thing I have a grudge against him is, he has spoiled me for life. His strive for perfection doesn't let me settle for ordinary in anything. There was a rhythm which he always saw in everything, even in cacophony and chaos, so I have learnt to sing and dance to the music of that rhythm, even with my tone-deaf voice and two left feet."

Irrfan Khan, who made his debut with a small role in Mira Nair's Salaam Bombay in 1988 was known for his performances in Maqbool, The Namesake, A Mighty Heart, Paan Singh Tomar, Life of Pi, The Lunchbox, Haider, Gunday, Piku, Talvar, and Hindi Medium, amongst others. His last film Angrezi Medium released in March this year.
