Irrfan Khan's son issues strong statement after being trolled for supporting Anurag Kashyap!

Wednesday, September 23, 2020 • Tamil Comments

Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan had passed away on April 29 this year, and is survived by his wife Sutapa Sikdar and children Babil and Ayan. Recently, Babil had shared a post supporting director Anurag Kashyap, who was accused of sexual misbehavior by actress Payal Ghosh.

After many actresses and even his ex wife supporting Anurag, Babil Khan posted in support of Anurag "Chin up, Anurag sir. I know you all are gonna hate me for this but I’ve got to stand up when something feels wrong. A lot of people in the comments are asking ‘What if the girl is right?’ I am trusting my judgement, I will take responsibility for my words if I’m wrong." He also posted "It's a shame that an invaluable movement like the #metoo is misused in such a malignant manner against a person that has actually inspired equality in an excruciatingly patriarchal industry. We now live in this strange age where it is easier to create a 'truth', and not manifest the truth. I pray that we evolve.The concern is that the metastasis of baseless accusations through the #metoo movement would ultimately diminish its credibility and women that genuinely need its support would be left in the dark, it is painful."

Following his support to Anurag, many netizens slammed and trolled him, and now Babul has issued a strong statement lashing out at them. Babil's latest statement read ""U know what, I have felt a sense of liberation from your hate because I realised, you really don’t have anything to do but hate and form a quick judgemental opinion about an actual human being . So really man, I have truly lost respect for people that claim they know my father, or hahahaha know my father better than me like “oh your father would be so ashamed of you” , Boi or girl shut you mouth, me and baba were the bestest friends don’t try to teach me what my father would have done, don’t jump on a band wagon just cause you can without knowing his true beliefs. If you’re an Irrfan Khan fan, come prove it me, show me his fascinations with Tarkovsky and Bergmann and then we shall probably start a conversation of how much you think you know my father. He was beyond you my friend."
