The whole nation had gone into a state of shock on the morning of April 29, 2020, when Irrfan Khan had taken his last breath with his family by his side. The whole industry had mourned on the untimely demise of one of the finest actors of our generation. Ever since then, in remembrance of him, people are sharing throwback pictures and videos of Irrfan and they're a delight to the eyes. Scroll down to check how 'cool' a father Irrfan Khan was, to his kids!
A throwback interview of Irrfan is doing rounds on the internet in which the legendary actor had revealed how had he reacted on seeing 'love bite' on his son, Babil's neck! The interview was back in 2017 when his film Qarib Qarib Singlle was all set to release. During that interview, the 'daddy cool' had revealed his reaction on his son, Babil's love life. He had said, "My kids are very open with me. When I saw a love mark on his neck and confronted him about it, he said, ‘no it’s not that, it is a rash.’ I said to him Beta congratulations. (laughs)." He had further emphasised on the importance of making kids comfortable with sharing everything with parents.
On discussing intimate topics with kids, Irrfan had said, "Just tell them(kids) it is natural. If you are not being curious about it, then there is something wrong with you. If you are curious and want to explore, please go ahead and this is the way life is. This is the best gift nature has given to you. Explore it. Explore it in a way that you don’t hurt anybody. But, find its potential." In Irrfan's opinion, two people getting together is a wonderful thing if it is not made into a commodity. Irrfan had also shared his experience from when he was a teen and had cited that he was never embarrassed to discuss such things with his mother.
