Irrfan Khan’s son Babil Khan recently made his acting debut Good. The actor, who believes in carving his own niche, is often compared to his father. In an interview with Hindustan Timesthe actor admitted that being the Qarib Qarib Single the actor’s son comes with privilege.
She also said that she recognizes the privilege she has because of Irrfan Khan, but doesn’t want to use it to “get a job”. He also stated that he wants to use his privilege and his father’s connections to grow, absorb and learn from the people who are masters of their craft.
He said, “Using privilege as a shortcut to success is not our way, but using privilege to grow and evolve is necessary. This idea arises in me from understanding that life gives you privileges as an opportunity and how you put that opportunity into effect is the test of your character.”
“For example, instead of using my privilege to get me work, I use the privilege of dad’s connections through being around and absorbing people who are steeped in art and masters of art; then I apply the knowledge I gain from those experiences in my auditions and my work. I don’t think the moral questions about privilege are about whether or not you have privilege, but rather how you use it,” he added.
“I’m an explorer and I want to explore”
Babil Khan said he wants to carve his own path in life. He even stated that he does not sit and plan things for himself as “life hates plans”.
The 24-year-old actor further stated that he is an explorer. “I’m not here to program myself, I’m here to enjoy the experience of life’s plan for me. There is no plan, there is an end goal which is inner evolution and that’s it,” he said.
