en Bollywood News Babil Khan recalls crying one night during Qala promotions; says, “Art cannot exist without commerce”

Babil Khan shared a post on his social media handle to give a peek into his meeting with the late actor and his father Irrfan Khan’s mentor.

Late actor Irrfan Khan’s son Babil Khan has finally made his debut in the entertainment industry. Ever since the release of his first project, Qala, Babil is receiving rave reviews for his performance in the Netflix original. While a section of moviegoers cannot stop praising his art, the actor has shed some light on how it changed after meeting his late father’s mentor.

In one of the latest posts on Babil’s verified social media feed, he shared some throwback pictures of Irrfan with his mentor, noted theatre director Prasanna. Along with a couple of photos, Babil also shared a video, in which he can be seen discussing the nuances of acting with Prasanna.

Instagramming his post, Khan wrote, “For the first time, in recent days, I experienced the other side of being an actor. The commerce of it, the promotion of yourself. Although I obliged to it with sincerity and honesty, it was something that didn’t feel true to me. It was difficult because the idea of feeding your own narcissism made me feel dissociated with the spirituality of ‘acting’ as an art form, even with the awareness of our reality; that in our society art cannot exist without commerce.”

Elaborating further, Babil added, “I begged to life itself, I sought within myself and I cried one night, I said “please show me a way to stay true to myself.” A few days later, Prasanna sir came to our house (one of the greatest acting teachers, baba’s most significant mentor) and discussions with him brought me closer to my roots, I felt closer to my art.”

The conclusion of Babil’s note read, “I believe that if we think of life as a dear friend and wish for changes within one’s self, life will revert to you, stay close with you and provide you with opportunities to evolve. I believe that life is your one true friend.”
