Today Irrfan Khan’s first death anniversary. He died of cancer at the age of 53 in Kokila Ben hospital on 29 April last year. His son Babil shared a touching note on social media.
Babil wrote: “Chemo burns you from the inside, so to find joy in the simple things, like building your own table to write your own journals. There is a purity, I have not yet discovered. There is a legacy that has already been concluded by my Baba himself. A full stop. Nobody can ever replace him.”
“Nobody will ever be able to. To the greatest best friend, companion, brother, father, I ever had and ever will have. I love you so much, for the rest of this chaos we are choosing to call life,” he added.
Babil misses Irrfan Khan a lot. If it would have been possible, he would have “built a space monument” and gone “to the to the furthest parts of a blackhole singularity” with his father to explore the “last mysteries.” Babil wrote: “I miss you, more than all that shah-Jahan/Mumtaz stuff; I would have built a space monument that could have taken us to the furthest parts of a blackhole singularity you were always intrigued by, but I would have been there with you Baba, and we could have gone together, hand in hand. (Exploring the last mysteries).”
