left us on 29th April, 2020. Leaving the entire nation in pain and grief, the late actor’s battle with the disease came to an end. Now, the actor’s wife writer Sutapa Sikdar has opened up about her relationship with Irrfan. She told Times of India, in an interview, that Irrfan was not husband material. However, she used to consider his little gestures that conveyed she is special. This beautiful bond between the two exemplifies love in its purest form.
Sutapa Sikdar talks about late husband and actor Irrfan Khan:
Sutapa said, “Irrfan was not husband material. Nah, he wasn’t (that’s a view from the definition we expect a husband to be – from the films, the novels and the merchandise companies). I tried to sometimes make him ask for normal things – like celebrating birthdays. But it didn’t work (so red roses, dark chocolates, diamonds, Valentine’s Day etc, were not discussed, leave aside being considered).”
She also shared Irrfan sang in Bengali because he knew that she would love it. She also said, “Irrfan cannot be defined as a husband or father or star as per social definitions. He would surprise and surpass all definitions, but the fact remains that he was someone very special or else why would I remember him every day even just to fight?”
The duo was married for 25 years until Irrfan died in April after battling neuroendocrine tumour. Sutapa believes that Irrfan has spoiled her for life. Irrfan was a perfectionist that makes her not settle for anything ordinary.
Sutapa wrote an emotional note on Instagram for Irrfan. It read, “When I look back ,when life was not black and white. I see you standing there… With the Nikon in your neck and looking thru your lenses. Irrfan I will miss you partner.. How many more miles to go.. How many more roads alone??”
