Irrfan Khan’s wife Sutapa Sikdar pens emotional note remembering him on his birthday

Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan would have been 54 years old on Thursday if he hadn't lost his battle with cancer last year. The actor succumbed to the disease after two years, leaving his family and fans in grief. On the actor's birthday anniversary, his wife Sutapa Sikdar penned an emotional note remembering him on her Facebook. Sikdar, who was married to Khan for 25 years, shared a note explaining why she used to celebrate the actor's birthday every year.

"You used to ask me when you were really young 'why would you celebrate your birthday. Isn’t it one year less to your death day?' Of course these were conversation when you had just ventured out from home from conditioning to exploration, so you would question everything. I don’t remember what I answered you but today I want to answer so listen Irrfan I celebrate the day because how would I have met you if you were not born."

"So I celebrate the day the nakshatras, the tithi, the grahas, the alignment of the universe on that particular day which welcomed you in this planet," she wrote.

Irrfan Khan was diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumour in 2018, a rare form of cancer that attacks various parts of the body. He was buried at the Versova graveyard and is survived by his wife Sutapa Sikdar and sons Babil and Ayaan.

Taking to Instagram, Babil shared a heart-warming video of Khan trying to video call him, in the presence of Sikdar and Ayaan. He said though his father never encouraged him to remember the date, it's impossible for him to forget it this time.

"Perhaps, that is why I don't remember anyone's birthdays because you never remembered mine and never encouraged me to remember yours. It was just normal to us what seemed absurd from the outside, we celebrated everyday (bringing personal experiential authenticity to the cliche).

"On the occasion, Mamma would have to remind us both; but this time I could not forget yours if I tried.

It's your birthday Baba. Shoutout to all the technologically inept parents, notice that they did not finish saying that they miss me," Babil wrote in the caption.

Since Khan's death, Babil's Instagram handle has become a peek into the personal life of the famously private actor, serving as a memory bank for admirers who are yet come to terms with his death.

Khan, one of India's finest and most versatile actors with acclaimed performances in films such as "Maqbool", "The Namesake", "Paan Singh Tomar" and "Hindi Medium", died at a Mumbai hospital in April 2020, leaving his fans, peers and family in mourning.

Anushka Sharma and Priyanka Chopra pay tribute to ‘legendary’ Irrfan Khan on his birth anniversary, see their messages

Actors Anushka Sharma and Priyanka Chopra paid tribute for the late Irrfan Khan on his birth anniversary. See their messages here.

Actors Anushka Sharma and Priyanka Chopra were among the many Bollywood celebrities who remembered late actor Irrfan Khan on his birth anniversary on Thursday. Irrfan died in April 2020, after a two year battle with cancer.

On Instagram Stories, Anushka shared a picture of Irrfan and wrote, “A legendary figure of the industry. You will always be missed and your legacy will live on forever.” Priyanka shared a similar post, and wrote, “Remembering an incredible legacy. Irrfan.”

Earlier in the day, Irrfan’s son, Babil, shared a video of his father in his memory. He wrote in the caption, “You never identified with institutions such as contractual marriage and birthday celebrations. Perhaps, that is why I don’t remember anyone’s birthdays because you never remembered mine and never encouraged me to remember yours. It was just normal to us what seemed absurd from the outside, we celebrated everyday (bringing personal experiential authenticity to the cliche). On the occasion, Mamma would have to remind us both; but this time I could not forget yours if I tried. It’s your birthday Baba. Shoutout to all the technologically inept parents, notice that they did not finish saying that they miss me.”

Irrfan’s friend, actor Chandan Roy Sanyal, told The Times of India, “I felt he was all set to break into the big league when he was gone and it made me really sad. More than anything I’ll miss what he’d have done had he not been taken away. Irrfan Khan was more than an actor; he was a seeker.”

Ritu Nanda was one among the Kapoor family's 'betis' who kept away from the glamour and grit of Bollywood to become an independent entrepreneur, initially in the household appliances business which, however, collapsed and later in the sunshine insurance sector, where she also shone. She was the Chairwoman of the Ritu Nanda Insurance Services (RNIS) and set new insurance records for which she bagged several coveted awards, including the 'Best Insurance Advisor of the Decade' from the public sector monolithic Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC).

For selling a staggering 17,000 pension plan policies in a single day, she got an entry into the Guinness Book of World Records. She was reputed to be the "one-window" insurance advisor for top Bollywood personalities in the past over four decades with insurance policies running into stupendous amounts of hundreds of crores of rupees.

Talking about Neetu Kapoor, the actress is all set to bounce back on the big screen with her next film Jug Jug Jeeyo. She recently wrapped the film in Chandigarh which stars Varun Dhawan and Kiara Advani in the lead. During the shoot of the film, Neetu had tested positive for coronavirus after which the shoot was halted for two weeks.

"Earlier this week, I tested positive for Covid-19. All safety measures are being followed and I am thankful to the authorities for all their help and quick response. I am in self-quarantine, taking medication on my doctor''s advice and feeling better," she had said in a statement.

Later, her daughter Riddhima Kapoor Sahni had announced that Neetu has tested negative. "Thank you for all your good wishes and prayers. My mother has tested COVID negative today," Sahni wrote.

Neetu Kapoor last featured in 2013''s "Besharam", alongside Ranbir Kapoor and late husband Rishi Kapoor.
