Babil Khan's Instagram Story

“Just wanted to share you all that I attended the Filmfare Awards yesterday and seven journalists asked me if I was high just because of the shape of my eyes. Well done guys. Great inquisitive research that you have conducted because I have been pure natural since I left university, really good job. You made me feel so nice by telling me that my natural face looked like I was high. Thank you so much for that. I will use that look and make millions in Bollywood,” his post read.
