Babil Khan Feels Nobody Would Have Cared About His Debut ‘Qala’ If He Wasn’t Irrfan Khan’s Son

Late actor Irrfan Khan’s son Babil Khan is all ready for his acting debut with Qala. Babil who is entering the industry shared his thoughts on his debut.

Late actor Irrfan Khan’s son Babil Khan is all ready for his acting debut with Qala. Babil who is entering the industry shared his thoughts on his debut. He disapproved of the term debut being a star kid in a recent interview. The young actor thinks nobody would have cared about his debut if he would have been Irfan Khan’s son. 

In a conversation with Film Companion, Babil said, “If I was not Irrfan Khan’s son, nobody would have cared about my debut. I would have been just an actor trying to get into films, auditioning, and maybe getting a part. Getting recognised through your work is so much greater than inheriting recognition. I feel like the word ‘debut’, and ‘launch’, these things always make the individual greater than the story and the film.” 

He further added, “From the get-go, I wanted to honour my mother’s upbringing. When I got the film I was happy that I was playing a supporting character to a female-led film, it was very important to me. I don’t feel easy at all and makes me very uncomfortable. Why would an artist want that? I just don’t know. It’s not me. It kind of hurts me, a little bit.”

Qala is a horror thriller drama helmed by Anvitaa Dutt. It features Babil Khan, Tripti Dimri, and Swastika Mukherjee in lead roles. It is a heartbreaking story about a daughter who craves her mother’s love. The film is set in the background of the 1940s in Kolkata and revolves around the complicated relationship between a singer and her mother. In the film, Babil appears as Tripti’s rival. The movie is produced by Anushka Sharma under the banner of Clean Slate Filmz.
