The Filmfare Awards 2021 have everyone feeling a lot of bittersweet things. Winning the Filmfare best actor award as well as a lifetime achievement award last night, was legendary actor Irrfan. Actor Ayushmann Khurrana presented the award to Irrfan’s son, Babil. And well, it turned out to be quite an emotional moment after all.
Ayushmann penned a heartfelt note for Irrfan as he got the chance to present the award. While the actor mentioned how he is honoured to do so, he also has the nicest of things to say about Babil. Irrfan passed away on April 29, 2020. These were both posthumous awards to Irrfan, and not just his son Babil, but everyone feels emotional right now.
Ayushmann celebrated Irrfan’s wins with a note. He wrote, ”We artistes are a unique species. We have our vulnerabilities and imaginations and theories. We rely on observations and experiences.” And then, he said something beautiful. He wrote, ”We live and die a thousand deaths on the celluloid or on stage. But the power of those performances makes us immortal.”
Ayushmann celebrates Irrfans posthumous awards at Filmfare Awards 2021:
The Filmfare Awards 2021 have been one that sure has our attention for all the right reasons.

Paan Singh Tomar is on another level.
Can't compare to any other. @dirtigmanshu & #Irrfan were magic of lifetime. Only negative/sad point is that now we couldn't see more of that magic in forever. #Shahid was awesome.@mehtahansal @RajkummarRao
