Irrfan's son Babil couldn't help but cry as he accepted an award on his father's behalf at a recent award show. He thanked the industry for supporting him in this difficult time as he got emotional.
While handing over the award, Ayushmann said in Hindi that artistes transcend time; they are remembered even after they're gone, but not everyone can attain the level of respect that Irrfan did. Rajkummar then took over and said, "I have learned a lot from you, Irrfan sir. And we will continue to learn from you, not just me, but also future generations."
He then welcomed Babil on stage, to accept an award on his father's behalf. He said, "I didn't prepare a speech, but I'm really grateful that you all accepted me with open arms, and gave me so much warmth, and so much love. All I want to say is you and I are going to make this journey together."
Babil wore his father Irrfan's indigo coloured kurta for the award night. Irrfan had worn the kurta by Rajesh Pratap Singh in 2017 as he turned the showstopper at Van Heusen + GQ Fashion Nights.
