Following the footsteps of his father Irrfan Khan, actor Babil Khan is attending an acting workshop by legendary theatre director and acting teacher Prasanna.
An icon of Indian theatre, who has written several books on acting and who also taught at the National School of Drama (NSD), Prasanna had mentored late Irrfan Khan during his NSD days. He was instrumental in helping Irrfan clear up his initial doubts about acting and find direction in his breathtaking career.
Babil, who looks up to his late father as an idol, has reached Mysore where he will attend Prasanna’s acting workshop at his academy Acting Shastra from February 1 to 7, 2023. The newcomer who was appreciated for his debut performance in Netflix’s ‘Qala’ (2022) wants to further sharpen his craft and learn from the guru who also taught his father.
A source revealed, “Babil is excited to attend this workshop and totally immerse himself in Prasanna’s process. The young boy is a committed learner and student. He will surely have much to gain from the legend who mentored Irrfan. The workshop is unlike any other in the country, one that teaches the Indian method of acting, and is accessible to working actors from all backgrounds. This will certainly be an enriching experience for Babil.”
