MUMBAI: Late actor Irrfan Khan’s son Babil has shared new pictures of his father’s grave after some fans expressed concern over the grave being left unattended.
“Baba liked it wild…Fans were worried it looked unkempt, I need you to understand, he always wished to be surrounded by…grass and…plants,” wrote Babil.
“Waste and plastic [are] always removed from that wilderness,” Babil added.

Baba liked it wild, Ayaan is staying strong :* mamma recently wrote about the wilderness around when some of his fans were worried that it looked unkempt, I need you to understand, he always always wished to be surrounded by the grass and the plants and the trees. Waste and plastic is always removed from that wilderness. Here’s what my beautiful mamma wrote: “Women are not allowed in Muslim graveyards. Hence, I have planted the raat Ki Rani in Igatpuri where I have a memory stone of his…where I have buried his fav things .I own that place Where I can sit for hours without any one telling me I can’t sit next to him. He is there in his spirit. But that doesn’t mean the graveyard shouldn’t be tended ..but as far as how is a very questionable thing… The wild plants grass have grown in rains.. It’s wild and beautiful is what I saw in the photo you are mentioning..it rains and plants come and they wither in the next season..and then one can clean it. Why should everything be exactly as per definition.. And the plants have grown may be for a purpose look closely.”
Earlier, Irrfan’s wife Sutapa also responded to a fan’s concerns about his grave being left unattended.
“I was heart broken, because it’s only few months and his graveyard looks like trash dumpster,” the Facebook user wrote.
“The wild plants…have grown in rains. It’s…beautiful is what I saw in the photo…Why should everything be exactly as per definition[?],” Sutapa replied.
Irrfan was still under treatment when he returned to acting with Angrezi Medium, a follow-up to his 2017 hit, Hindi Medium. Irrfan’s final film, incidentally, has also been Bollywood’s last release in the theatres for now, before the Covid-19 pandemic forced a total lockdown of the nation.
