Bollywood lost one of its brightest stars on April 29, 2020, when Irrfan Khan succumbed to cancer after a valiant battle at the age of 53. His departure left an indelible mark on the film industry and in the hearts of fans worldwide. Renowned for his versatile performances, from the contemplative Pi Patel in 'Life Of Pi' to the endearing Rana in 'Piku,' Irrfan Khan's legacy continues to inspire. Among those deeply influenced by his brilliance is his son, Babil Khan, who has followed in his father's footsteps and showcased his acting talent in films like 'Qala' and 'The Railway Men.'

In heartfelt tributes shared on social media, Babil often reminisces about his father's profound impact on his life. On the eve of Irrfan Khan's fourth death anniversary, Babil took to Instagram to share a poignant reflection on his father's teachings alongside director Homi Adajania. He recounted his father's belief in the power of true friendship to transcend pride, emphasizing the importance of laughter as the essence of existence.

Homi Adajania, who directed Irrfan Khan in his final film, 'Angrezi Medium,' reciprocated the sentiment, evoking memories of the bond they shared on set. Irrfan's portrayal of Champak Bansal, a father navigating his daughter's aspirations, resonated deeply with audiences and marked a fitting finale to his illustrious career.
