New Delhi:

Babil Khan frequently remembers his late father and actor  Irrfan Khan by sharing memories from the past in the form of social media posts. Babil recently posted a throwback picture of his father on Instagram and he wrote an emotional caption along with it. He wrote: "For in my dreams, I have no knowledge of your desertion. In my dreams today, you told me you were about to leave me and you held me for so long. Imagine the fact that I just woke up cause my phone rang for yet another offer to act, for yet another film." An emotional Babil signed off his note with these words: "Now what sense does all this make without you Baba? I'd rather keep dreaming. (Tears make it hard to type, someone invent a phone for people that cry a lot plis)."
