The producer also added that the young lad has a lot of pressure on him and he also requested everyone to let him be and let him express himself. Karnesh also added that Babil can very well carry his late father’s legacy.
Elaborating further about how he came on board for the film, Karnesh said that Babil auditioned for the film. Neither he nor Anvita Dutt knew that he was Irrfan’s son.
