Irrfan's son Babil Khan recently took to Instagram to post an unseen picture of the actor from his younger days. Babil revealed how he still dreams of his father Irrfan and how much he misses him.
He captioned the post as, "For in my dreams, I have no knowledge of your desertion. In my dreams today, you told me you were about to leave me and you held me for so long. Imagine the fact that I just woke up cause my phone rang for yet another offer to act, for yet another film. Now what sense does all this make without you Baba? I’d rather keep dreaming. (Tears make it hard to type, someone invent a phone for people that cry a lot plis)"
On Valentine's Day, Babil revealed how Valentine's Day was disregarded in his family. Sharing a photo of his parents, he wrote, "I wish I could explain how much this concept of ‘valentines day’ was blatantly disregarded in our family because it does try to say that 'abhi bhai saal mein ek din to kuch special kardo apni 'Mumtaz' ke liye'. Brother, I hope you are dedicating every waking second in an exploration of your loved one and not waiting for ‘Valentines day’."
