Ayushmann took to his Instagram handle to share a piece of art as he celebrated Irrfan’s legacy and said: “This is somewhere in Bandra. But he is somewhere resting in peace.” He also shared that he “had the honour of presenting this” award to Babil, the late actor’s son.
The full caption read: “This is somewhere in Bandra. But he is somewhere resting in peace. Celebrating his double win. Forever Irfan! Best Actor (male) and the lifetime achievement award! I had the honour of presenting this @filmfare award to @babil.i.k. Met this beautiful boy for the first time. Would see him do well in future. We artistes are a unique species. We have our vulnerabilities and imaginations and theories. We rely on observations and experiences. We live and die a thousand deaths on the celluloid or on stage. But the power of those performances makes us immortal,”
Irrfan Khan, who had floored us with his terrific performances for years, breathed his last at the age of 54 in April 2020 after his battle with a rare form of cancer.
