Earlier on Friday, Irrfan’s wife Sutapa Sikdar released an official statement from the entire family asking the actor’s fans to stay strong and remember the actor with a smile. In the long emotional note, Sutapa wrote, “… ours was not a marriage, it was a union. She further wrote “I see my little family, in a boar, with both my sons Babil and Ayaan, paddling it forward, with Irrfan guiding them ‘wahan nahi, yahan se modo’ but since life is not cinema and there are no retakes, I sincerely wish my children sail this boat safely with their father’s guidance in mind and rockabye through the storm. I asked my children, if possible, they could sum up a lesson taught by their father that has been important to them;
Babil: Learn to surrender to the dance of uncertainty and trust your faith in the universe
Ayaan: Learn to control your mind and to net let it control you.” (sic)
