Irrfan Khan’s wife Sutapa Sikdar had brought attention to the plight of her son Babil and several other students in foreign countries in a note which she shared online.
Amid the coronavirus outbreak, thousands of Indian students were stuck in several countries across the world and were unable to return to India. One of them was actor Irrfan Khan’s 19-year-old son Babil who is pursuing his education in London. Babil had a tough time returning to his parents in Mumbai. Irrfan’s wife Sutapa Sikdar had brought attention to the plight of her son and several other students in foreign countries in a note which she shared online.
She had written, “As a mother, I am worried as hell, but I don’t understand when the Indian government has been so good with other students, why (is) it not helping Indian students stuck in London? Let the students come back home, my earnest appeal to GoI (Government of India).”
Sutapa Sikdar and Irrfan Khan must now be relieved as Babil has safely returned to Mumbai.
