Karnesh Sharma, Anushka Sharma's brother, compliments Babil Khan's debut in Qala, says 'He has Irrfan Khan's rawness'

Babil Khan, the son of the late actor Irrfan Khan, is set to make his Bollywood debut soon. Qala is the title of the film, which also stars Tripti Dimri and is produced by Karnesh Ssharma's Clean Slate Filmz. In an interview, Karnesh praised Babil, noting that his acting style and rawness are comparable to his father's.

The film Qala, which reunites director Anvitaa Dutt and actor Tripti Dimri from the Netflix film Bulbbul (2020), does not yet have a release date.

Karnesh praised Babil in an interview, saying, “The rawness that Irrfan had, Babil carries that. My personal request to all of you is that let him be and let him express himself. He is really young and has a lot of pressure on him. A humble request would be to let him express himself and enjoy what he has done, rather than putting pressure. The rawness and the form of acting that Irrfan was known for, I think Babil carries that legacy.”

“Babil auditioned for the film. Neither I nor Anvita (Dutt) knew he was Irrfan's son. Babil is here purely on merit. He is a fantastic actor and talented. And we are really happy and excited to present him. I think he has really done a good job on the film. We do not want to have a bias toward anything. So, whoever is with us works on merit. Babil is happy that he is with us,” added Karnesh.

In 2018, Irrfan was diagnosed with neuroendocrine cancer. He'd been going to London for treatment on a regular basis. The actor died in Mumbai's Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital on April 29, 2020.
