The film’s producer Ronnie Lahiri also shared an emotional post and captioned it, “Honoured to take forward your legacy Irrfan sir. Worked with a legend like you, and now Babil. If this is not Providence, what is it?” Earlier, Ronnie had produced Irrfan Khan, Amitabh Bachchan and Deepika Padukone starrer Piku.


Ronnie even told ETimes, “It was a very emotional moment for us today. But Babil was selected for the film based on the auditions he gave for the role.”

When asked if he sees a reflection of Irrfan in Bail, he said, “Of course it is in his genes but Babil’s energy is different, he is young and the innocence he has is amazing. We will make a formal announcement in a month’s time.”

Irrfan Khan passed away on April 29, 2020. He was battling with a neuroendocrine tumour and was diagnosed with a colon infection. He will be seen one more time on the big screen with the film, Song of The Scorpions, which will soon get a release date.
