Sutapa Sikdar, Irrfan Khan’s widow, took a trip down memory lane as she composed an emotional statement reminiscing about the late actor. Sutapa revealed flashback images of Irrfan that appeared on her Facebook as his film ‘Qarib Qarib Single marked four years on Thursday, revealing Irrfan’s ambition to recite Amitabh Bachchan’s renowned poem ‘Tum Hoti Toh Aisa Hota’ in his film ‘Silsila.’

Sutapa replied in response to Irrfan’s post, “The love keeps coming,” with a succession of excellent reviews for the picture, “When the sleep disorder still continues even after one and a half years. And FB opens the flood gate of memory a new one each day and Sahir Saab says ‘Tum Hoti Toh Aisa Hota’ because Irrfan genuinely wanted to speak this poetry someplace.”

Bachchan Saab’s iconic voice had travelled many times in student days, and Irrfan used to marvel at it. Still, twenty-five years later, Sahir Saab took the lead in Fandom over Bachchan Saab and Irrfan in those late-night conversations would say ‘Yaar muzhe bolna tha yeh… ekbaar (I really want to recite this… once)’ but some journeys abruptly stop. And leave you  #qaribqaribsinglle. “Kuch log itne qareeb hote hain ki unke bina bhi woh zindagi mein qareeb hi rehte hain (Some individuals are so close to you, they remain around you even when they are not)#irrfan,” she added.

Meantime, film lyricist Raj Shekar has shared a photo of himself with Irrfan from the set of ‘Qarib Qarib Singlle.’ “You guys loved my song Jaane De from the film, but my achievement of working on Qarib Qarib Singlle was the time spent with Irrfan saab.” he captioned it.

Irrfan Khan passed away in 2020 after a lengthy struggle with a neuroendocrine tumour.
