Late actor Irrfan Khan’s son Babil Khan has finished his first shoot
Babil Khan, son of late actor Irrfan Khan, has wrapped up his first shooting schedule. The budding actor shared the news along with a picture on Instagram.
In the photo, he is seen posing with a friend against the backdrop of snow-covered mountains. “I have finished my first shooting schedule,” he wrote, without divulging details of the shoot.
“Damn. Also with my childhood best friend bama side. In the process, I realised that it is absolutely necessary to remember that your self-importance will drown you if you’re not extremely careful and honest with yourself,” he added.
Babil then stressed that it will be the story that will be greatest. “You are part of a story and the story will always be bigger than you. (Whether you are an actor or not)...” wrote Babil, who had earlier hinted about his acting debut.
According to unconfirmed reports and a now-deleted Instagram Story post by actress Triptii Dimri, Babil will make his debut in a project produced by Anushka Sharma’s banner Clean Slate Filmz.
The reports suggested that Triptii, who will co-star with Babil, shared a picture post on Instagram Story where she was seen posing in snow-capped mountains. In the post she had written that the project is titled Qala.
The actress had tagged Babil, making it official that he is also a part of the project. No announcement or details have been shared about the project yet.
Babil Khan had earlier said he has discovered a diary full of acting notes by his father. He calls it the ‘Book Of Eli’.
Babil shared a video clip on Instagram, where he is seen flipping through Irrfan’s notes. “I just found this book in Baba’s cupboard that I had given him when I was like 12 (he used to hate it when I used to call him ‘Dad’ but whilst puberty global westernisation was beginning to ripen) He had been writing notes on acting for me in it that I think he was going to teach me after film school, so I guess I have just found the ‘Book of Eli’,” Babil wrote.
He shared a few pointers given by his father. “1. The intent – general but specific emotion like displacement, if you are unable to identify with a specific situation. 2. The text is holy in context eg. the woman in the man, self-pity, sexual politics etc. 3. Follow the action of the text sincerely and the required emotion will arise – the intention of the lines are to tell a story and not to pass information. 4. Drama has to be created, it cannot be represented or portrayed like a fact.”
Irrfan died in April 2020 after a two-year battle with neuroendocrine tumour. He was last seen on screen in Angrezi Medium.
