Irrfan Khan was one of Bollywood's most gifted actors. Even though he is no longer with us, his followers will always remember him through his films. Babil Khan, Irrfan's son, has always made it a priority to preserve his father's legacy and delight his followers with old, magnificent images of the late actor on social media. Babil, on the other hand, is about to make his debut with Qala. The movie's trailer has already generated a lot of hype, and fans have been excitedly anticipating its release. In a recent interview with Film Companion, Babil, who has been actively promoting Qala along with the rest of the cast, talked about his upcoming film debut and his late father.
In the interview, Babil Khan stated that he opposes the word "debut." He joked that if he weren't Irrfan Khan's son, no one would have cared about his acting debut when he was pressed for more information on this. “I would have been just an actor trying to get into films, auditioning, and maybe getting a part. Getting recognized through your work is so much greater than inheriting recognition.” He also said that according to him the words debut and launch make the individual greater than the story and the film. “From the get-go, I wanted to honour my mother’s upbringing. When I got the film I was happy that I was playing a supporting character in a female-led film, it was very important to me,” he added.
Anvita Dutt is the director of Qala. The film, which features Tripti Dimri and Swastika Mukherjee, tells the story of the complex bond between a singer and her mother during the 1940s in Kolkata. Babil plays Tripti's rival in the movie. It will debut on Netflix on December 1 and is produced by Clean Slate Filmz, a company owned by Karnesh Ssharma.
Having fought a neuroendocrine tumor for two years, Irrfan Khan passed away in April 2020. Babil continues to post their previous recollections on social media. Ayaan Khan, the Piku actor's younger son, survives him in addition to Babil.
