After defeating cancer, Irrfan Khan returns home


In March last year, noted actor Irrfan Khan had revealed that he has been diagnosed with a rare tumour. Soon after that he left for London for treatment. After eight months, Irrfan returned to India. Irrfan was spotted at the airport and to avoid paparazzi, he covered his face with a scarf. He donned a pink jacket and camouflage pants.

Irrfan wrote soon after cancer diagnosis, “The unexpected makes us grow, which is what the past few days have been about. Learning that I have been diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumour as of now has admittedly been difficult, but the love and strength of those around me and that I found within me has brought me to a place of hope". 

A source close to the actor confirmed that the actor is back but dismissed all other claims. “Irrfan is back in Mumbai. But people are publishing all sorts of stories without any confirmation. They are not true,” the source said.

On the work front, Irrfan will start shooting for ‘Hindi Medium 2’, its producer Dinesh Vijan had said earlier, “Right now, everything is speculation. Irrfan had just come back to town. It’s the script that is ready. Hopefully, in another one month, we’ll have a clarity.”

Tigmanshu Dhulia, director of 'Hindi Medium 2' said to Deccan Chronicle in an interview, “I did meet him after he returned to India. He is perfectly fine now. Irrfan told me that he will begin shooting for Hindi Medium franchise soon.”
