April 29 was a dark day in Bollywood as the industry lost one of its most legendary actors Irrfan Khan. The ‘Hindi Medium’ actor had been undergoing treatment for cancer since two years and on his first death anniversary, Irrfan’s son Babil penned a heartfelt note for his ‘baba’.

Sharing a candid picture of Irrfan Khan working on setting up a desk, Babil captioned it with his pure emotions.

Sorely missing his father and expressing his love for Irrfan Khan, Babil wrote, “Chemo burns you from the inside, so to find joy in the simple things, like building your own table to write your own journals. There is a purity, I have not yet discovered. There is a legacy that has already been concluded by my Baba himself. A full stop. Nobody can ever replace him. Nobody will ever be able to. To the greatest best friend, companion, brother, father, I ever had and ever will have. I love you so much, for the rest of this chaos we are choosing to call life. I miss you, more than all that shah-Jahan/mumtaz stuff; I would have built a space monument that could have taken us to the furthest parts of a blackhole singularity you were always intrigued by, but I would have been there with you Baba, and we could have gone together, hand in hand. (Exploring the last mysteries).”

In another social media post, Babil shared a handwritten note by Irrfan Khan.

Chronicling the time spent in London during his treatment for cancer, the legendary actor had described it as ‘the period of realisation of inner mechanisms and the experience of magic’.
