Irrfan Khan’s son Babil, who frequently shares throwback pictures of his late father on his social media handle, added another one to his collection. On Sunday, Babil posted a million-dollar photograph on his Instagram profile, which happens to be from the time when he was an infant. In the picture, little Babil can be seen curled up in his father Irrfan Khan’s arms. He accompanied the post with a heartfelt caption that read, “Death is painful for the living, for those dearest to your heart, but you taught me that death is only the beginning. So I’m here celebrating your life in my mind, divine bitter-sweetness. I was listening to ‘The Beatles’ then you got me obsessed with ‘The Doors’ and we used to sing along. I sing those songs still now, I feel you then.”
