New Delhi:

Babil, the son of Irrfan Khan and Sutapa Sikdar, made our day by sharing a return photo of the late actor on Instagram. Babil, who often updates her Instagram profile with vintage photos of Irrfan Khan, did something similar on Monday. He took a trip down memory lane and unearthed an old photo of the actor and his wife posing adorably for the camera. Babil accompanied the photo with a beautiful poem. “That’s right, time actually slows down in the spaces between your breaths. And once you’ve dreamed of more, how could you settle for less. Maybe it was over because you knew. Or maybe because I grew up. But the sky is not so blue when the sun goes down on you, ”he wrote.

Irrfan Khan died in a Mumbai hospital on April 29 at the age of 53 after a long battle with cancer.

Since the death of Irrfan Khan, Babil has been sharing beautiful old photos of the actor on social networks. In one of his previous posts, Babil posted a look back at when Irrfan first saw him perform on stage. “Probably the first time he’s seen me perform on stage,” he wrote.

Do you know one of the most important things my father taught me as a film student? Before going to film school he warned me that I should prove myself because Bollywood is rarely respected in world cinema and at such times I have to inform about Indian cinema which escapes our Bollywood control. Unfortunately, this has happened. Bollywood was not respected, no awareness of Indian cinema of the 60s and 90s or of the credibility of public opinion. There was literally only one lecture in the world cinema segment on Indian cinema called “Bollywood and Beyond” which also aired in a laughing classroom. it was even difficult to have a meaningful conversation about real Indian cinema from Satyajit Ray and K. Asif. You know why? Because we, as an Indian audience, refused to evolve. My dad gave his life trying to elevate the art of acting in the unfavorable conditions of the 2000s Bollywood and alas for most of his trip was defeated at the box office by guys with six pack abs delivering theatrical and law-defying one-liners. of physics and reality, photoshopped article songs, just blatant sexism and identical conventional representations of patriarchy (and you have to understand, being defeated at the box office means the majority of the investment in Bollywood would go to winners, engulfing us in a vicious cycle). Because we as an audience wanted this, we loved it, all we were looking for was entertainment and security of thought, so afraid to see our delicate illusion of reality shattered, therefore reject any change in perception. Any effort to explore the potential of cinema and its implications for humanity and existentialism has at best been kept aside. Now there’s a change, a new scent blowing in the wind. A new youth, in search of a new meaning. We must stand our ground, not let this thirst for a deeper meaning be quelled again. A weird feeling assailed when Kalki was trolled for looking like a boy when she cut her hair short, it’s pure suppression of potential. (Although I don’t appreciate that Sushant’s demise has now become a whirlwind of political debate, but if a positive change comes along, Taoist style, we embrace it.)
