Babil Khan doesn’t get any advantage of being a star kid: Said- I give auditions, many also get rejected
Babil Khan, son of late Bollywood star Irrfan Khan, is soon going to make his Bollywood debut with the film Kala. In a recent interview, he revealed that despite being the son of a superstar, he has to give auditions for films. Along with this, he also said that his mother would never ask someone for a favour for this.
Babil says, ‘I always compare myself with his legacy. I am one of those people who want to give their best in whatever they do. We shot this film (Kala) two years back. I have grown a lot as an actor. So I always think I wish I would have done this, I would have done that. I also believe that whatever you do, has its own journey and you cannot bring your ego into it.
Babil further says, ‘Baba’s whole work was to connect with the people. He didn’t care about the award, nor did he ever think about who is producing and directing the film. All he knew was that he had to play this character and he used to connect with people. The same thing has come inside me too.
There is no allegation of nepotism against Babil. Babil says that it is because he has not used his father’s name for his career. Talking further about this, he said, ‘I don’t think my mother can ever ask for favours from anyone for this thing. I will have to audition otherwise there will be a lot of beatings at home. These are our rituals. There is no scope to break it.
Babil further said, ‘Even now I am giving many auditions and I am also rejected in many. Even today, if I give an audition in which I want to pass and I do not, my mother gets angry with me. But she will never call anyone and ask them to pass it. Such things are against our values. I think people also understand this.
Irrfan married Sutapa Sikdar 1995, whom he met while studying at the National School of Drama. The couple has two sons, named Babil and Ayaan. Apart from earning a name for his work in the Hindi film industry, Irrfan has also worked in Oscar-winning films such as ‘Life of Pi’, ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’, ‘Inferno’, etc.
Irrfan Khan was diagnosed with neuroendocrine cancer in 2018 and was undergoing treatment for almost 2 years. But died on April 29, 2020 at Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital in Mumbai.
