Irrfan Khan’s death has surely taken a toll on all his fans and well-wishers. His son Babli keeps sharing memories and videos of his father on his social media account. This time too, Babil shared memories from the shooting days of ‘Qarib Qarib Singlle’ and went on the narrate a story. “I was assisting with the camera team on QQS. There was a shot needed on a Gangtok street but the people would crowd around the set and Baba, soon after a few takes it started seeming impossible to shoot the sequence. So, Tanuja ma’am handed me a guitar and said go 100m away and start performing. She called out a loud “PACK UP!” for the crowd to hear and then I started singing with the guitar and the crowd dissipated towards this new divertissement. As I sung they quickly shot the sequence using natural light and finished the job. True story. Funny. Experience to use for all filmmakers, use your interns in the most creative ways”. He also warned fans about tactics being used to run similar divertissement.
Earlier also Babil took to his Instagram to share a happy memory with his father. He wrote, “I slept for 14 hours and I didn’t want to wake up cause I was dreaming about you. Waking up is the worst, I hate realising everyday that you’re gone. You didn’t say anything, we just laughed. (He’s playing the OG ‘bounce’).”
