Irfan Khan, Babil Khan
Babil Khan: It hasn’t been much time since Babil Khan entered the industry but his debut has been excellent. He is the son of the reigning king of the acting world. Sadly the king is no more. But his kingdom is alive. His roles are still in people’s minds. And Babil Khan has set out on the same path. His acting in The Railway Man is very good. Although his style is different, he still remains like his father.
Let us knock on that thought through some points where Babil Khan, knowingly or unknowingly, seems to be following his father’s path. He has not come out carrying the banner of any success with him. He is an actor and is just acting. Just as natural as his father did throughout his career. Irrfan Khan is an award which the people of the country will keep celebrating all their life.
Irrfan Khan came to Bollywood very quietly and his impact was visible gradually. He came in his own colors and as soon as he came, he painted everyone in his own colors. Just remember Pankaj Kapoor’s film Ek Doctor Ki Maut. How Irrfan Khan looked thin and tall in this film. This was his first introduction into the industry. A small role and a simple style. There is no artificiality anywhere. There is no drum anywhere. Then he was seen in the Oscar nominated film Salaam Bombay. In this film too, his role was very simple and there were not many dialogues. But gradually he made his place in the industry.
No promotion like other starkids
In today’s times, you see that from the Deol family to the Khans, everyone promotes the films of star kids. Promotes the work of his children. Amitabh Bachchan, who remained silent on the success and failure of Abhishek Bachchan for the last many years, openly promotes and praises his son’s films. But unfortunately Babil Khan could not get this privilege. The whole world knows how much he misses his father. Just imagine, if Irrfan was alive today, how would he have been promoting his son’s film. Whether they did it or not, this question also went with them.
Overall, Babil Khan has come and is working. He is also vocal on the personal front regarding his work. But some of his projects come and go quietly. He showed his acting prowess in art. After this, he has impressed with his acting in The Railway Man also.

I am your carbon copy
Babil Khan also had a bit of luck. He got a chance to work with KK Menon, R Madhavan and Devyendu Sharma in The Railway Man. But he did not appear inferior to anyone in his role either. He played the role of the person who was the biggest hero of the lives saved in this Bhopal gas tragedy. He did complete justice to that role. There is a calmness within him like his father Irfan. And his eyes are also quite expressive. Dedication is definitely there in him. In such a situation, I wish that Babil’s journey should be as wonderful as his father’s.
