Actor Irrfan Khan’s death on Wednesday left his fans in shock. The actor was rushed to the Kokilabhen Hospital due to colon infection and breathed his last on April 29. He is survived by his wife Sutapa Sikdar and two sons Babli and Ayan. On Thursday, the actor’s wife Sutapa took to social media to pen a heartfelt message for her late husband. She updated her Facebook display picture with an adorable picture of herself hugging Irrfan and captioned: “I have not lost I have gained in every which way….”
Reacting to the post, several users paid condolences to her and her sons, Babil and Ayan. “You are strong. Love,” a user commented.

Not just Sutapa, Irrfan’s son Babli also took to social media on Thursday to thank everyone for the condolences. Taking to Instagram story, Babil Khan wrote, “I’m deeply grateful for all the condolences you beautiful friends are pouring in for me. Although, I hope you understand that right now I’m not being able to reply because my vocabulary is dizzy. I will get back to each one of you but just not right now. Thank you so much! I love you”.
