Recently it was announced that Bollywood star Irrfan Khan had contracted a rare illness. The actor had himself taken to his Twitter account to confirm the same. Earlier it was speculated that the actor had jaundice because of which he was also unable to begin shooting for Vishal Bhardwaj's next alongside Deepika Padukone. But it was later determined that Irrfan had in fact contracted this rare disease that had taken a serious toll on his health. As soon as this news hit the Internet, people started speculating about the illness. Soon even rumours of him having brain cancer spread but were rubbished by people close to him.
After much speculating, his wife Sutapa Sikdar, took to her Facebook handle to write about Irrfan's illness. Here's what she wrote:
"My best friend and my partner is a ‘warrior’ he is fighting every obstacle with tremendous grace and beauty. I apologize for not answering calls msgs,but I want all of you to know I am truly humbled indebted for ever for the wishes prayers and concern from all over the world.
I am grateful to god and my partner for making me a warrior too. I am at present focused in the strategies of the battlefield which I have to conquer.
It wasn’t and isn’t and is not going to be easy but the hope ignited by the magnitude of family ,friends and fans of irrfan has made me only optimistic and almost sure of the victory.
I know curiosity germinates from concern but lets turn our curiosity from what it is to what it should be. Lets change the leaf.
Lets not waste our precious energies to only know what it is and just prey to make it what it should be.
My humble request to all of you is to concentrate on the song of life, to dance of life to victory.
My family will soon join in this dance of life.
Thank you all from bottom of our heart .
Sutapa irrfan babil ayaan."
Well, we wish Irrfan a speedy recovery and hope to see him back on the silver screen soon. Stay tuned for more updates.
