“I Tell Babil That Irrfan Used To Work 10 Times Harder Than You Do,” Says Sutapa
Sutapa Sikdar, a wife of the late Irrfan Khan, said she had never seen a person work as hard as the famous actor. Sutapa is among many other celebrities who spoke about Irrfan in an episode of the Trader documentary series Shesh Tarpan. Sutapa Sikdar goes on to say, “Just as he used to talk to people, everyone could understand the honesty he had in himself and that the other person achieved through his words.”
Talking about his effortless acting, she says, “People always used to say Irrfan never really acted, I’ve heard this innumerable times from innumerable people. I always wondered if so much hard work goes into ‘not acting’, how much effort would be going into ‘acting’. I have never seen a man in my entire life working so hard, even my son, who is getting ready to walk on his father’s path, asks me what he used to do, and I always tell him that your father used to work 10 times harder than you do.”
The English mediums Irrfan, the co-hosts Radhika Madan, Deepak Dobriyal, and Pankaj Tripathi, and director Homi Adajania also shared their thoughts on Irrfan. Dirigido by Aritra Mukherjee, the present episode also includes Jisshu Sengupta, Shoojit Sircar, Roopa Ganguly, Tigmangshu Dhulia, Dr. Chandraprakash Dwivedi, Mahesh Bhatt, Anees Bazmee, Chandan Roy Sanyal, Shailesh R. Singh, Sanjay Chauhan, Ajay Brahmatmaj, Guneet Monga, Nikkhil Advani, Abhishek Dutta, Parno Mittra, and Sanjay Gupta is talking about Irrfan.
The series is produced by Nandita Roy and Shiboprosad Mukherjee. Shiboprosad said, “For me, it was like I’m reading a book, which I never want to end, as the end holds the unavoidable truth. Irrfan Khan was not only a great actor but a genuine human being and the fact that he is no more is indeed heart-breaking.”
Both the seasons of the series are streaming free on Hoichoi.
