Irrfan Khan not consulting any Ayurveda doctor for NeuroEndocrine tumour


Irrfan Khan shocked the world when he disclosed about his rare disease. The versatile actor is suffering from Neuroendocrine disease and he headed to London for the treatment of his disease. Irrfan Khan also shared a heartfelt poem from London and doctors claimed that his tumour can  be successfully removed through surgery.

Gossip mills churned that the actor is consulting an Ayurveda doctor for the treatment. However, his spokesperson clarified through a statement that the Irrfan is not being treated by an Ayurveda doctor but its true that he has met a Vaidya but the process did not go further than one consultation.

Here's the full statement:

As suggested by recent news reports, Mr. Khan is not consulting with Vaidya Balendu Prakash. He at one point had contacted him but other than one phone call there has been no conversation or consultation whatsoever. It is unacceptable to be using someone’s illness for your own publicity and personal gain. Like Irrfan khan's previous statements, we all need to respect the space asked for and wait for him or his wife’s statement for any further update.

Last Friday, Irrfan tweeted about his rare disease. “Life is under no obligation to give us what we expect: Margaret Mitchell. 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 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. The journey of this is taking me out of the country, and I request everyone to continue sending their wishes. As for the rumours that were floated NEURO is not always about the brain and googling is the easiest way to do research :-) To those who waited for my words, I hope to be back with more stories to tell.” He, however, gave no more information on his disease.

On March 5, the versatile actor revealed to the world that he that he is suffering from a rare disease. Taking to Twitter, the 'Hindi Medium' actor wrote, “Sometimes you wake up with a jolt with life shaking you up. The last fifteen days, my life has been a suspense story. Little had I known that my search for rare stories would make me find a rare disease. I have never given up and have always fought for my choices and always will. My family and friends are with me and we are working it out the best way possible. In trying times, please don’t speculate as I will myself share with you my story within a week – ten days, when the further investigations come with a conclusive diagnosis. Till then, wish the best for me.”

On the work front, Irrfan Khan’s next outing‘Blackmail’ is slated to release on April 6. The director of the film Abhinay Deo recently said, “I met him and he is fine and in good spirits. We all know that he is unwell. He is away for his treatment. We should respect the privacy of the family. We are hoping that he will be with us on April 6, watching the film.”

Meanwhile, Vishal Bhardwaj has postponed his with Irrfan and Deepika Padukone owing to the actor's ill health “Irrfan is a warrior and we know he will conquer this battle. Therefore @deepikapadukone, Prernaa @kriarj and I have decided to reschedule our film and start with renewed energy and celebration when our warrior returns as a winner,” he tweeted Monday.
