Last year, in April, we lost one of the gems of Indian cinema, Irrfan Khan. The Lunch Box actor had been battling a rare type of cancer for two years. He was rushed to hospital with a colon infection, but the star never returned home. It was one of the most tragic moments and no one could have understood the hardships Irrfan’s family would have gone through after his disappearance. Since then, his oldest child, Babil, had shared fond memories of his father, handing out anecdotes to his fans. But it seems that people have created a bubble, in which every child star has no heart, soul or feelings. A son who has lost his father can’t even revisit and cherish his father’s legacy in peace, really?
Social media went to Tartarus. We bet even hell would be more peaceful and less toxic than social media. In addition, Babil Khan, who recently received an award on behalf of his father, has also faced some nasty comments from some reporters. Not one, not two, but about seven reporters asked him if he was drugged when he walked the red carpet at the Filmfare Awards this year. And he recently revealed that people have also accused him of leveraging his father’s legacy to make his career, which is most recent at the moment. Just when we start to think that people can’t stoop anymore, they surprise us with such stinky acts.
Who gives them the right to make such comments and express malicious opinions about anyone? What makes them think that no child star is allowed to work in the Hindi film industry and should be boycotted? What makes them think that a passionate son would take advantage of his father’s exceptional contribution to the entertainment world to make his career? Where have kindness and humanity gone?
Conversely, an Instagram user asked Babil Khan when was he going to share something about his late father? The young man’s response is too heartbreaking to read, but there you go… “I loved sharing and then I get these Dms all the time saying I use it to promote myself and it really hurts while ‘in fact I was really sharing memories to fill the void he left with his fans. I’m not sure what to do, “he said, adding:” I’m trying to understand, but it really hurts when random people tell me I’m using his memory to gain influence like I should. to do this, I’m already his son, I never had to do this to win anything. Now I am puzzled and a little hurt. So I’ll share when I feel it’s the right time.
Mankind has hit rock bottom with this incident. Even in these difficult times, with so much terriboe that is going on around us that is beyond our control, it is appalling beyond words that we find ways to make it worse through things that really are. under our control. Our heart goes to Babil.
