Irrfan Khan’s son Babil blasts Bollywood

Irrfan Khan’s son Babil, who plans to follow his late father’s footsteps into films, penned a heartfelt note about Bollywood on Instagram, along with two rare photos of the celebrated actor. Being a student of cinema, Babil shared how Bollywood was not respected in world cinema, “You know one of the most important things my father taught me as a student of cinema? Before I went to film school, he warned me that I’ll have to prove my self as Bollywood is seldom respected in world cinema and at these moments I must inform about the Indian Cinema that’s beyond our controlled Bollywood. Unfortunately, it did happen. Bollywood was not respected, no awareness of 60’s – 90’s Indian cinema or credibility of opinion. There was literally one single lecture in the world cinema segment about Indian Cinema called ‘Bollywood and Beyond’, that too has gone through in a class full of chuckles. it was tough to even get a sensible conversation about the real Indian cinema of Satyajit Ray and K.Asif going. You know why? Because we, as Indian audience, refuse to evolve.”
