On Irrfan Khan's 4th death anniversary, his wife Sikdar Sutapa took to Instagram to share a heartfelt note, remembering the late actor. Irrfan passed away on 29 April in 2020 after battling neuroendocrine tumour.

In her post, Sikdar recalled her journey with the late actor, expressing the deep sense of loss she has experienced after cherishing 36 years with him.


Taking to the photo and video sharing platform on 1 May, Sikdar wrote, "It’s 4 years three days since irrfan left me. Four years? A feeling of guilt sweeps through my body. 4 years we have LIVED without him added with sadness, fear, hopelessness and severe helplessness. And then I thought but still I lived with him more. I knew him since 1984 so that makes it 36 years of knowing him more and definitely till I die I would have spent more time with him then without him. And then I thought if he was with me physically in 2024 what would have been our conversation like? Because that’s the most I miss."

Sikdar also imaged a conversation with the late actor. Their interaction revolved around admiration for Diljit Dosanjh's performance in Amar Singh Chamkila and how Irrfan would want to work in Fahadh Faasil in a Malayalam movie.

She wrote, "He would be coming home mostly in 2024 straight from the shoot and would be petting our cat and reading.

Me: you have to see chamkila

He: would not have looked up immediately( never did while he was reading)

Me: he is sooo good.. I loved his performance.

He: Accha? Who?

Me: Arre yaar Diljit Dosaanj.. he is so not structured and all heart.. he makes me feel.

He: (now looking at me) Accha.. you think he is that good!!

He: hummm (his phone rings ) hey dinu (Dinesh Vijayan) yaar yeh sutapa Bol rahi hai Diljit dosanj bahut Accha hai..

Me: Accha nehi bahut Accha..
